View from the sea of Koh Kaeo Noi Island

Koh Kaeo Noi Island

Located just south of Koh Kaeo Yai Island by about .5 miles (.8 km). Smaller than its bigger sister, Koh Kaeo Noi Island is roughly diamond shaped and about 1,826 feet long and about two-thirds that wide.

There is no sandy beach here, but you may be able to persuade the boat captain to drop you off, so you can explore the rocks around the island. If you can navigate the entire way around, it will be about a mile hike (1.6 km). Make sure the boat is staying there to pick you up because there’s literally nothing on this island.
