is a small limestone island 25 minutes by boat from the beaches of the Raileh peninsular
(which can be seen on the horizon in the photograph). The circular island is no more than
a kilometre in diameter, covered in palm trees and almost entirely encircled by a soft
white sand beach.
A coral reef lies 20 metres offshore, and the combination of scenery,
beach and excellent snorkelling make it one of my favourite places to spend a lazy day in
this part of the world.

There is some accomodation in Koh Poda (bungalows), although it's quite pricey. Koh
Poda is an Island and is approx. 30mins by Longtail Boat ride from Ao Nang Beach. Chicken island got its name
from a bizarre rock formation which resembles the head of a chicken. One end of the island
consists of steep cliffs, while the other end has beautiful beaches along a peninsula.
This peninsula gets flooded at high tide, creating a small island. There is no
accomodation on Chicken island.
30 minutes in a longtail boat from Raileh is a group of limestone islands which are
incredibly beautiful, with great beaches, reefs which are still reasonable (but not as
good as around Koh Phi Phi), but can get very busy, particuarly during the main tourist

Poday Group Islands. In the east, there is a
one-kilometer-long sandy beach shady with rows of pine
