It is almost certain that, during your stay here, you will want to take a day trip to one or two of the surrounding islands. Koyao Island Resort staff can arrange a perfect day out for you.
A first start is to borrow one of the resort's mountain or motorbikes and to explore the island. The roads are easy to navigate and local people more than willing to help you should you get lost. If you feel like a more leisurely day, hire a Tuk Tuk (taxi) and driver guide and set of for a day of fun and adventure
At the resort there are kayaks for those who enjoy canvassing the sea. There are also fishing rods available. For day trips it is normal to use a traditional Thai 'long tail' boat - so named as its propeller is on the end of a long pole. On these excursions you visit mangrove forests, coves and caves, crystal clear waters and uninhabited islets. The islets and islands around Koh Yao Noi are formed by millions of years of deposits and are now made up essentially of limestone. Rock climbing is possible on the limestone cliffs and their weird formations make for some stunning photography at different times of the day.
For those who wish to travel further a field, outings can be arranged to Koh Yao Yai, Phuket, Phang Nga, Krabi or indeed the popular Ao Nang - all trips take maximum one hour travel time.
Aside the scenic views that you will experience on day trips, one of the most thrilling aspects is that you are highly likely to see some of the region's most beautiful flora and fauna. We have monkeys, giant lizards, sea eagles, hornbills, kingfishers and of course the charming local buffalos and goats. For fishermen, take your chances with groupers, snappers, carangues and barracuda. Diving can be arranged through local operators.
