Ko Yao, sometimes written Koyao, is a group of islands between Phuket and Krabi. There are two main islands, Ko Yao Noi ("Small Long Island") and Ko Yao Yai, with Noi being the more developed of the two.
Ko Yao Noi is a beautiful island, where most people still believe that the island should be preserved from human degradation. It is often described as one of the last islands in the region to not be overly developed.
Ko Yao Noi is mountainous in the center and has beaches to either side. The East side has beaches suitable for swimming and snorkeling and the West is a picturesque blend of rice flats and mangrove trees. The island is a sanctuary for at least 4 species of hornbills, very commonly seen around.
Regular long-tails ply between Chonglad Pier on Ko Yao Yai and Manok Pier on Ko Yao Noi during daylight hours -- 20B per person, takes 10 to 15 minutes.
Ko Yao Noi covers about 50 square kilometers.
Tuk-tuk's are waiting at the tender pier.
The most efficient way to get around the island is to hire a scooter. The island offer scooters for rent for 200/300B per day. No licence is generally required and helmets are provided.
