Koh Yao, Phuket and Krabi has nearby activities like Snorkeling, Kayaking and Island Hopping in Phang Nga Bay Tours.
Experience the tropical forest with its great variety of plants & wildlife. A Paradise Koh Yao guide is available to take you on our Big Tree hike. Hike past the impressive limestone rock of our cove through the untouched jungle & learn more about indigenous plants, trees & animals. The highlight of this hike is the magnificent Buddha tree, known on the island simply as ‘Big Tree’. This “Ficus Religiosa” rises well above 30 meters & it takes about 20 people to reach around its trunk.
This wonder of nature is located very close to a beautiful hidden beach where a traditional long-tail boat will be waiting to take you back to the resort. As you leave the beach the sight of the crown of Big Tree will leave a lasting impression.
Visit the most beautiful islands around Koh Yao Noi & Krabi during this unforgettable day trip on a long-tail boat, or the resort’s own catamaran. Enjoy a day of sightseeing, swimming & snorkelling in wonderful Phang Nga bay with its impressive limestone rocks & hongs (“hong” means room in Thai & describes the internal lagoons).
Departing from Paradise Koh Yao‘s pier, the trip starts with the ’hong’ inside Koh Hong, which is surrounded by limestone cliffs & affords you the opportunity to snorkel with tropical fish. A picnic lunch is served at ‘Paradise beach’, on a small, idyllic, hidden bay of Lading island. The final stop is the beautiful island Koh Phak Bia with it’s white sandy cape.
Traditional Fishing Trip
Paradise KohYao can arrange an unforgettable night-fishing trip (or day trip) with the local fishermen on their longtail boat. Everyone is always amazed at what the locals can catch using only a handline (with one wrap of the line around a big toe). Watch how they catch fish, crab, prawns and squid, and try your hand at it, yourself. Our chefs are also happy to cook your catch of the day if you wish to eat it. The locals of Koh Yao Noi have an uncanny ability to find where the fish are biting.
There is a Dive Base on Koh Yao Noi with professional dive masters that have more than twenty years diving experience around Phang Nga Bay.
Paradise KohYao staff will be happy to arrange a day trip for you to see the incredible underwater world of Phang Nga Bay. The dive boat will pick you up at the resort pier and return you at the end of the day after your diving. Highly recommended! For those who want to see what lies under world famous Phang Nga Bay.
All courses and dives are guided and conducted by professional local dive masters. Available in high season due to low visibility in the rainy season.
