We paid 2,300 baht per person for the whole experience, which was a lot cheaper than all the other tours we had seen. Overall we were highly impressed with the quality and professionalism of the tour. The tour started with a boat trip to banana beach, snorkelling site, clear kayaking boat and then a few hours of freetime. The tour... More

Hired a long boat from Rawai for 2500 Baht and stopped at 3 different islands. We stopped at Buddha Island first. Spent about 45 min there but would bypass as there is nothing really to do on the island. An abandoned sculpture ruin that was never finished is kind of neat but overall just walked around for a bit. Next... More

I have been on so many beach tours around Phuket , but this one was the best yet. I have been to Coral Island itself on another tour. I've been to Raya Island, Phi Phi, ect. This tour was great because it was so well done. The tour begins at the best restaurant in Chalong Bay Kan Eaung with coffee,... More

Great little beach, great coral in a sheltered bay for snorkelling, deck chairs for rent, and great facilities, shop, bar, restaurant, a great day out, speedboats run from Rawai or hire a long tail. Not a tout on the beach which is just great.

We visited during January 2017, intended to stay 2 hours but spent the whole day instead! Banana beach is an absolutely gorgeous beach with soft sand, turquoise water and palm trees. It isn't particularly well known so it will never get extremely busy. There is enough shade for the whole day, and a beach restaurant that serves good food and... More

We waited a few days to get nicer weather and it was really wearth it. The best snorkel island so far. We also Bern to Phi Phi. We have seen a lot of various animals from the sea. Banana Beach on this Island was really nice. We arrived quite early to see the East of the beach side. Perfekt to... More

We got here by a long tail boat from rawai beach. It cost 1500 baht for drop off and return back to rawai. Our driver was lovely and asked us what time we would like to return. You don't pay until you get back to rawai which is a plus. The beach was very nice, clear water, nice coral and... More

Went using long-tail boat from Rawai beach. Took us about 20-min and transferred to a faster boat just outside the beach area by what seems to be the corporation that runs the entire beach front. Plenty of water-sport activities such as para-gliding, snorkeling, diving and banana-boat ride - all under the management of the same company that manage the entire... More

If this beach was cleaned frequently it would be a great beach to visit. It's just too much garbage around. The water is mostly nice and clean.
