Many new areas have been developed on the islands surrounding Ko Yao Noi and on the northern end of the Island itself. This is one of the most low key and tranquil island destinations in Thailand and now hosts many new climbing areas as well. Located in the southern end of the Phang Nga bay. The beauty surrounding this island is breath taking. However don't expect the ease of Tonsai/Railey. Approaches require motor bike rides through steep jungle roads, hiking and or hiring a boat.The climbing logistics can be difficult to sort out, but you will be rewarded with high quality Titanium bolted routes in a peaceful setting.
As this is an Island you will need to hire a boat or catch a ferry. Ferries arrive daily from Phuket, Krabi, and Phang Nga. Getting here from Phuket is the most convenient.A daily speed boat also leaves from Railey West at 10:30am as of Dec 2008. The web sites below should help you get started.
