Bang Rong Pier is located on the north-eastern side of Phuket Island. Close to the entrance to Phang Nga Bay and Koh Khai, it is the main place for visitors to catch water taxis and speed boats to several of the nearby islands. Water access is available to Koh Yao Yai (Big Long Island), Koh Yao Noi (Little Long Island), and Koh Naka. Boat times and prices vary. As a guide, speedboats operate each day to Koh Yao Yai at regular intervals between 7:40 and 17:30, and the journey costs 120 THB. You can also negotiate the price for a private transfer in a longtail boat – but be prepared to barter!
