Koh Nakha Yai

Koh Nakha Yai

Looking at this scene you'd hardly imagine the rain squall which came through an hour before. Koh Nakha Yai is on the east side of Phuket Island. There is a resort here and another place on the beach with a big sign which says "cold beer". Obviously it is aimed at tourists on boats.

Here is your Thai lesson for the day: Koh means Island, Nakha is the Island's name, and Yai means "north". If there is a Yai then you can expect another island with the same name with a Noi just to the south. Sure enough, around this point you can see Koh Nakha Noi 1/2 mile to the south.
