Naka islands are part of most day trips to Phang Nga Bay, usually, you will make a stop there on your way back from the Phang Nga Bay trip but you won’t have the time to explore the islands as the stop can be very short. But you can hire a boat from Ao Por Pier in Pa Khlok in Phuket so you can explore these islands properly at your own pace. Speedboats are also available for rent from Ao Po Pier, so basically in order to reach the islands, you have to pass by Phuket first if you weren’t already there. Phuket has its own international airport and also a train station so getting to Phuket from anywhere in Thailand can be very easy and has so many options. You can fly from Bangkok, Krabi, or from so many countries all around the world. After flying to Phuket you can take a taxi from the airport or a shared minivan to Bang Rong Pier to hop on a ferry to Koh Yao Yai then switch ferries to reach Ao Po Pier and catch another one to Koh Naka Yai in 20 minutes.
Located just off the northeast coast of Phuket, the Naka Islands are actually two islands “Koh Naka Yai and Koh Naka Noi”. Naka Yai is bigger than Naka Noi and its beaches are wide and surrounded by tall coconut trees. Naka Noi on the other is a site for cultivation of rare South Sea Pearls and any tour to the islands will include visiting the pearl farm.
