I liked bamboo island, it was nice and not as touristy as the other islands. Its interesting to see the damage done by weather catastrophe.

Reading the reviews about having to arrive early to avoid the crowds was the plan but after our long tail decided to break down a couple of hundreds metres from the beach this is where it all went wrong. You could count how many people were on the island on one hand at this time but as the engine still... More

Beautiful white sand - amazing. Nice quick stop. You can walk around the whole island, although we were too hot to do that!

Get there super early before the Asian invasion of Chinese with selfie-sticks in large tour groups and you'll really enjoy this place. Walk around the island, climb over the rocks, and find your own little secluded beach to hang out on because the main beach becomes very loud and crowded very quickly - say by 9:30am.

Right ok if you want to call an island paradise it isn't what I would imagine far too busy cluttered beach litter everywhere and a charge of 400 Bhat each for what feel robbed, it does not live up to the hype

Excellent beach with lot of space to absorb tourist from speedboats reaching at same time. Kids enjoyed a lot even though lot of speed boats were parked. Try to go to the other side of the beach from where boats are parked.
