The islands

The three Khai Islands, namely Khai Nai, Koh Khai Nok and Koh Khai Nai are located approximately 30 minutes from the east of Phuket. Resort lovers who choose to stay at properties of COMO Hotels & Resorts will find that a day trip to these islands is the perfect escape from the crowds.

Snorkelling

Koh Nai Island and Koh Khai Nai Island are popular for snorkelers as the waters are teeming with a colourful range of marine life.

What not to do

No matter how tempting it looks, remember that you should not feed the fish, as this will harm the ecosystem since the fish will eventually become dependent on humans for their food! Also, you can be arrested for it.

Essentials

Everything from swimwear, sunscreen and sunglasses are essential. If you stay a property such as COMO Point Yamu, a tour to these islands can be arranged for approximately THB 2,500++ per person, which includes snorkelling equipment, guides and transfers.
