Ko Sire (เกาะสิเหร่), also Ko Si Re, Ko Si Le, is an island off Phuket. The name is pronounced "Sih Reh" (two syllables).

Get in[edit]

Separated from the mainland of Phuket by the Khlong Tha Chin, a shallow mangrove swamp, this twenty-square kilometre island is connected by a causeway to the city.

Get around[edit]


  • Wat Ko Si-Re, on the hill, has a large Reclining Buddha and provides fine views of the surroundings.
  • Phuket's largest settlement of Sea Gypsies (Chao Le), can be found on Ko Si-Re at Laem Tuk-kae. The muddy seabed means the island is not good for swimming.


  • Visit the Sea Gypsy community. It may seem run down and dirty - but the people are real and have genuine smiles!


  • Barbara, [1]. Cheap pearls of all colours from the sea Gypsie as well as shells and mobiles. Very good prices compared to Phuket Town. Bargain with a smile - the sea Gypsies are very friendly!  edit


There are some popular seafood restaurants on the eastern shore.



  • The Nchantra Pool Suite Residences, 41/44 Moo 1 Sirey Beach, Rassada, +66 76 510 011, [2].
