Seventy years ago the little Jewel of an island less than 15 minutes by boat
from Phuket island covered with coconut, and pine trees and a white sandy
beach was without a name. Over time it become a favorite fishing destination
of the local fisherman because of the plentiful “Pla Lang” or “Lang Fish”.
The locals then started referring to the island as “ Rang Island “.
The name it embraces today.
