Coral Island (Koh Hay) & Banana Beach

Sunday morning, 8:30 am, the weather is fine, time for a short cup of coffee, a quick cigarette and on the way to ราไวย์ (Rawai) in the south of the island, the starting point to visit the group of wonderful small islands just south of Phuket. A good spot too for diving lovers with beautiful coral reefs and tropical fishes.

The previous day, on my way there for lunch, I was able to book a Thai fisherman's boat to spend the day on Coral Island (Koh Hay), this for a fistful of Bahts and it's still more fun and folkloric than a tour operator. Appointment was thus taken for 9: 30 am with a return to Rawai around 4: 30 pm.

I can only advise you to do this because on the one hand it's cheap, the fishermen doing this after their return from fishing just to make a little more money (with tourism the prices of accommodation on the island are much more expensive than on the mainland for the locals) and on the other hand don't worry they know the sea, are equipped with life jackets and can take you off the beaten path. Not to forget that on the boat there will be no other tourists.

Once there, as planned, he was waiting for us not far from the pier and in no time at all we were already sailing.

We weren't the only ones who wanted a ride at sea and this little sea trip was an opportunity to meet all kinds of boats. From big fishing boats with full tanks, to leisure sailors on catamarans and other sailing boats, to diving expeditions.

But not that, on a small platform for parasailing, fishing was the rule while waiting for the first tourists. You will be able to cross some of these small platforms and inflatable slider allowing fun entertaining activities and if honestly you don't find your pleasure on Phuket and its surrounding islands it's that you are really tricky 😂

9:50 am, then finally the Promised Land was in front of us, ready to welcome us for the day. Just the drive to get there has already been a real pleasure, a day that begins auspiciously.

A few boats were already there but there was plenty of space for our little Louis 😁 (fun to take a boat with a typical French first name, it made me laugh when we got on it).

10:05 am, and then it was off for a relaxing day away from work, which is very nice, especially since there are a lot of places to relax here. Truly a piece of paradise, I wonder what I would have said ten years ago if I had been told that ten years later I would be living on a wonderful island at 10,000 km from home?

Hi @acidyo, Have you planned a post to analyze the evolution on Twitter for Steem related hashtags since the implementation of PoSh to know if the operation has a positive impact?
