Traveling on Koh Yao Noi


Located on 8th north parallel, where monsoon winds blow from the West (June to September), then suddenly reverse to the East (October till May), Koh Yao Noi benefits a typical wet tropical climate, as described by geographers: Constant temperatures (Max. 30 Cº to 33 Cº; Min. 20 Cº to 23 Cº, a rainy season (West winds) and a dry season (East winds) with short intermediate seasons.

The effects of rains and winds are considerably reduced here by the presence of the Island of Phuket and the Malay Peninsula that protect the island on both sides, reducing rain falls and wind strength.



The island covers about 50 square kilometers and has approximately 18 kilometers of concrete and dirt road around it. Great for bicycling and walking. It is mountainous in the centre 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.
