Bungalow Bay Racha Yai

Racha Yai-Bungalow Bay

Bungalow Bay is situated on the western side of Racha Yai Island. This is a popular dive site during the high season when the weather predominately comes from the east. It provides protection from the easterly weather and is a very good dive site to learn to dive and begin your scuba diving adventures. It is a very picturesque site and very popular with scuba divers and snorkelers alike.

Only an hour and a half day trip boat ride from Chalong Bay, Phuket, the site is divided into the north side and south side and both have similar features. There is plenty of nice white sand which makes it a perfect training site. It is ideal for both the PADI Discover Scuba Diving and PADI Open Water Course.
