Koh Hey or Coral Island

Coral Island, also known as Koh Hey, is a popular destination near Phuket, Thailand. As its name suggests, it is well known for its shallow coral reefs and excellent snorkeling.

The island’s Thai name is Koh Hay (sometimes written Koh He, Koh Hae, or other variations). This does not actually translate to Coral Island. It means crowded island and the name is not totally inaccurate. The island does receive plenty of day-trip visitors throughout the high season.

The tranquil atmosphere of Coral Island extends into the night, providing a peaceful retreat after the daytime hustle and bustle. Travelers seeking solitude can find quiet corners at the extremities of both Long Beach and Banana Beach, offering a serene escape from the crowds. Whether you’re lounging on deck chairs or exploring the vibrant coral reefs, Coral Island promises a delightful tropical experience near Phuket, Thailand.

Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Coral Island is between November to April when the weather is mild and conducive to enjoying the islands and water activities, but the island open all year round.
