The island is located 3 km from Rawai beach. It is also called Khao Kaeo Pitsadan. If you have been to Cape Promthep you probably noticed a bright yellow pagoda on the island. The island is famous for the fact that at the water's edge there is a stone with a footprint of the Buddha. There is also a monastery on the island.
The island can be reached either by a long-tail boat with a motor or by a canoe. The latter, we think, is a much more exciting way to travel. The nearest place to rent a canoe is Yanui Beach. Canoe costs 100 baht per person. A round trip to the island and back plus a walk around the island will take 2.5-3 hours. Don’t forget to bring a sunscreen cream and a waterproof bag.
