Monday 17th February and we booked a half day tour to Coral Island.

There are 2 beaches on the Island, this one and the larger, busier Long Beach.

Our tour landed on Long Beach, where we were based. It is possible to walk to here by
walking along the beach with sea on left side to end of beach to the rocks. Pathway initially not that obvious, been washed away. So clamber over rocks a short way and the narrow path is accessible.

The ground was very uneven and at times a bit steep, there is a plethora of small roots criss crossing the path. Footwear is definitely required, not really flip flop terrain. It took us about 20 minutes to get there.

There were a small number of sun beds but no umbrellas on the beach, the only shade was under the trees. Towels and beach mats are need to spread out on the beautiful white sands, which are lapped by the crystal clear sea.

The were some bars and restaurants along the beach.

We only stayed a short while here, as we had to get back to the other beach, but we did have time to walk along the beach and admire the beautiful scenery.

Super beautiful place and a great way to enjoy some hours. The only thing is that we payed to go to the beach, and then we had to pay an extra fee when we arrived, nobody else did that. Really clean beach and nice personal.

The staff was amazing. Every stop was beautiful for snorkeling or swimming. The lunch served was delicious and handled with care. I will recomend Banana Beach to anyone looking for a fun and safe excursion.

What a fantastic place to spend a full day or half day, once picked up from your hotel it’s a 25 minute shuttle bus then a 15 minute boat ride across. Once there you can relax on the beach and soak in the sun or enjoy one of the many water sports on offer. We as a family of 4 enjoyed the thrill of parasailing, the crew was professional, pleasant and amusing. The only down side to it was that you can’t take your own pictures as a photographer is on board taking them which you can buy later. I must admit that the price for around 400 photos taken was quite responsible. On the half day excursion a light lunch is provided which consisted of fried rice, mini chicken drumsticks and a Thai chicken soup.
Definitely go, it truly is a beautiful place to visit.

We stayed in Bangtao Beach for almost two weeks, so we got tired of the beach there. So we went for a day-tour with one of the boats taxi. It takes about 30 minutes one way so it is not far. With a car-taxi it is about the same time cause of the bad roads.

Try to visit the little island near the beach also, there is great snorkling water there.

On banana beach it was little crowdy, but that didn't matter to us. There is also two restuarants there, with food, drink and ice cream. There is not any sunbed so bring towels to sit on. There is alot of trees there though, so you should be able to sit under shadow if you want. A few meters from the beach there is some underwater rocks, so you can snorkle there too if you want to.

So if you are near Bangtao beach and want a day tour, visit Banana beach!

We went on 2 other trips to Phi Phi and James Bond island and not one of them can be compared to Banana Beach. This trip was by far more relaxing with professional staff and not as commercial as the other two trips we did. We will definitely do this trip again and we recommend it to all first timers!

Snorkelling was amazing.

Food was not a buffet as with the other trips it was a set menu, family style and absolutely delicious!

Water is clear blue and exactly as the pictures on Google.

Staff is super cute and helpful. 👌👌
