Only saw it from the boat, looked like a cool island, pretty much just another beach though. Looked like you could walk inside the jungle a little bit too.

Came to this island via Phuket Sail Tours! The sands were white and the water crystal clear! There were some parts of the beach where you had to be careful going into the water because there were sharp rocks in the water so be careful! Otherwise great beach!

We went to Bamboo Island at about 20 years ago. We went in a friends long tail boat, with his family, from Krabi, it took, as far as I can remember over 2 hours, but a lovely trip. Only a couple of other boats there. Very few people. It was really peaceful and beautiful. I don't expect now it is... More

We went on a island hopping trip and bamboo island was one of the stops. It was one of the must see places it's like a postcard! Only down fall was that there wasn't much to do there but it's such a beautiful place that it doesn't really matter. Just wish I could of spent longer there!!!

Not that much to see here and it is not that beautiful as the surrounding beaches. I would not say that this beach is a must.

We hired a long boat for the day but I'll share the advice I was given on that occasion: insist on leaving as early as possible. Thus you will enjoy every place before the usual rush and its aggravations.

We go for a tour and we stay 1 hour. The beach is like a huge plaza. On October 2014 a sea storm has destroyed some tree on a side of the island. The beach is great and you can see some fishes near the beach. You can find a little bar in the island. Remember you must pay 200... More

The beach is an extremely stunning beach however is extremely busy with your boats I would recommend to take a wander and lay your towel down in some of the quieter areas!
