    Great day at banana beach
    About 15 min. Boat trip to Banana Beach. The beach is clean, with white sand and turquoise water. The are seating areas for free or Sunbeds with extra charge. Snorkeling was very nice, we got to see colorful coral and lots of fishes. The food that was included in the tour was amazing, fresh seafood and also meat and salads. There are a lot of activities available on the island: para sailing, swimming, kayak, and most of all many photo ops with amazing views. The guide was nice and familiar Wich we liked.

    Phuket, Banana Beach - incredible experiebce
    I would recommend that you go out with Alex and experience Banana Beach. She is a fantastic swimmer, takes her time to teach about the area, it’s ecology and people. If delving into another culture, and experience things like the coral reef from an educated point of view that both fun and adventurous is your game, she will make it all magic!

    Great day trip to Banana beach
    Great day trip to a very beautiful island. Lots of activities: snorkelling, cayaking, banana boat, etc. stayed there half day - enough just for beach experience. Can stay longer to explore the island.

    It is unforgettable
    We recently visited Banana Beach and this trip was simply incredible. The beach is characterized by its soft golden sands and clear blue waters, making it the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun. One of my favorite features was the delicious food available along the beach. I tasted some of the most delectable local dishes. I will undoubtedly return to Banana Beach and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a charming and delightful beach experience.

    Good day out and easy trip from Sth Phuket
    Great day out. Lunch was good. Staff were friendly. We chose the snorkelling and glass bottom kayak package. The kayak was only about 10-15 mins and didn’t see anything but still fun. Snorkelling off beach was better than the snorkel location we were taken to. We saw lots of fish an eel and an octopus.

    Banana Beach one day tour
    We really enjoyed the day trip to the beach. The beach is very clean, the infrastructure of the beach is comfortable and modern. I would also like to express my gratitude to the team that accompanied us on the tour. Definitely try the canoeing, also bring coral shoes for snorkeling.

    Visited this amazing little island just a quick boat ride away from our hotel on Panwa beach. Great spots for snorkeling, good food, drinks etc. Very clean beach. White sands and clear blue water. Very scenic. The water activities looked good too. We didn’t go for it because we had a 3 year old who just wanted to swim in the clear blue water. It was an amazing experience overall

Trips to Banana Beach are either via the tour company that has exclusive tour access, or via a private speed boat / long tail boat. We visited using the tour company, who also included some snorkelling at a nearby bay, banquet lunch at the Hornbill restaurant, tea/coffee with biscuits for afternoon tea, masks and snorkels, and free water/soft-drink during the day. They also ensured that a gluten-free lunch was available. It was a great day, and the swimming and snorkelling was fantastic. Most of the visitors didn't seem to do this, and instead sat on chairs on the beach, so missed out. The best snorkelling on Banana Beach was on the far side of the pontoon jetty, away from the boats, and there was plenty of coral and fish to see. One of our snorkels was broken, but it was easily swapped over at the hire place, although I suspect it was immediately hired out again, so I suggest checking any masks/snorkels as soon as you hire them.

Great tour, timetable was planned very efficiently. We booked an all day tour to banana beach in Koh Hey that included a really delicious lunch, snorkeling, and clear bottom kayaking. It was quite crowded on the beach and dining area but not in the ocean. Lots of tourists, but likely due to Lunar New Year holiday for China. The facilities are clean and spaced out. The water is super clear and pristine, lots of areas with coral and fish. The only feedback is probably to have their organization strongly suggest using coral-safe sunblock to the tourists. There was an alarmingly large area of just dead coral on the opposite side of the island where they took us snorkeling.

Nice white sand beach with clear tirquise water. You can swimm and snorkeling around. When is tide too low, its dificul to enter in water because small rock and coral. Nature is awesome. Many banana tree, palm and other egzotic three. Couple beach bar with nice construction. Big problem is too many people, crowded most time. But, you must comming and enyoj in water and nature!

Been here yesterday, we have taken the the Program B (Half Day with 1 Activity Included). When we arrived to the check in area, we got a warm Welcome by the Staffs especially Lily. They are providing light breakfast, some breads, fruits, coffee & tea, etc.. We got introduced by the program and explained what we are going to do. We departed at 10am, took a speedboat and reached Banana Beach for 15minutes.

Banana Beach is a small island, with clear sea water, white sand, tall trees, it was overall clean. Staffs were excellent in maintaining it clean and of course the service they are providing are beyond magnificent. They also have sun beds which you could use the whole duration of your trip.

The company provides different activities such as ZipLine, Banana Boat, Parasailing, Giant Swing, Scuba Diving, Snorkeling, Kayaking (these are all I remember). We originally planned to take the parasailing but due to the strong winds we were unable to do it instead we have done the zip line which has 11 plat forms.

After doing the activity, they have served our lunch (fried rice with chicken), also a small bottled water is provided, unlimited!

It’s a great place to visit! Hearing the sounds of waves makes you forgot the stressful life in the city.

Nice day trip from Phuket to Banana island. The island itself is small but the restaurant has a good range of dishes which are reasonably priced and there are activities such as snorkelling, kayaking and a view point. The staff were friendly and gave good advice on where to go for the snorkelling.

It was an amazing experience.
We started the day with a pleasant 45 minutes sail to banana beach.
We than spent some time in the water and afterwards did two activities - parasailing and banana boat.
The parasailing is spectacular and majestic, the view is unique and the experience of floating 50 feet above the water is singular.
The banana boat was also great and thrilling, we were eventually dunked in the water and we laughed the whole time.
The beach itself is gorgeous and relaxing, and snorkeling there is a treat.
Our guide, Alex, was very helpful and kind and helped make the experience better and more fun.
I highly recommend taking this trip.

Brilliant day at Banana beach with out guide Alex. She has been great and has really looked after us.
Fast boat ride across to the beach where we went kayaking. Then a short boat ride to a really good bay for snorkeling. The fish are so friendly and swim around you.
Back to the beach for lunch of beautiful Thai food. Plenty to eat and they bring out more if you want it.
You get tha afternoon to sunbathe, swim or just relax in a deck chair either in the sun or in the shade.
Water is included in the day and you can buy reasonably priced drinks if you want.

The experience with banana beach wasn’t not great at all and really upset us. Snorkeling was terrible as it was packed with stinging jelly fish. We paid extra money to be able to do activities like kayaking, snorkeling, para sailing or banana boat, and a banana swing which we found out we could only go on for 30 seconds and is only on the beach. They didn’t let us do any of the activities and They tried to offer us a T-shirt and for us to sign a waiver to not discuce or complain about the trip which I didn’t do. Money waisted and very disappointed. WOULD NOT RECONMEND
