Krabi, Thailand - Koh Poda and Koh Kai Islands

Koh Poda is a small limestone island 25 minutes by boat from the beaches of the Railey peninsula. 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.

Chicken island or Koh Kai got its name from a bizarre rock formation which stands for 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.
