There are beautiful islands near Rai Leh beach with white coral sand beaches and crystal clear water. Chicken island (proper name Koh Kai) is one of the closest ones and can be easily reached by long tail boat (either from Ao Nang, Rai Leh or Phra Nang beaches). 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.
