Ko Rawi is one of these secluded places and home to an amazing stretch of white sand hugging its crystral clear waters. Long tail boats park on the beach to let the few tourists enjoy their beach time while the drivers order some lunch at the only picnic spot on the island. There are some benches and trees so you can cool off in the shades. Ko Rawi can be reached by boat during a day trip from Ko Lanta and usually the driver will combine Ko Rawi with some other islands for you to visit. Ko Lipe, Ko Dong and Ko Adang are other popular trips within the Adang Archipelago and you can ask any long tail boat driver to take you to these islands.
