Owner description: Coral Island's Banana Beach and Long Beach provide everything that can be desired on a day excursion to a pristine tropical island with stunning beach scenery, virgin rain forest backdrop, good reef snorkeling (Banana Beach only) and full menu of active and passive water sports. Banana Beach is more quiet and laid back, actually the beach lounges are under natural shade, modern clean amenities and of 5 star standard of restaurant and service. The design of all buildings is amazingWe even barge in fresh water for our guest's to wash the salt off before heading back to the resort.Nice touch for the ladies! Long Beach is a 800 meter long white sand Beach with several of the biggest watersports companies in Thailand which cater for all looking for an active day swimming, basic snorkeling, SASUBA Hookah Diving,Try Scuba Diving, Sea Walker, Parasailing (old beach take-of style), Banana Boat rides. All water sports are available at Banana Beach as well as coral viewing clear kayaks, however the active sports are operated far away from the beach thereby maintaining the tropical beach relaxed ambience. Summary: Banana Beach: The day trip is slightly higher in price, 5 star in service, quality of activities, 5 star restaurant, 5 star amenities, 5 star speedboats, 4 star coral reef and water conditions. from 2,300 baht each.( Banana Beach Coral Island is nominated for "Best water sports day-trip" and "Best speed boat day trip" in Phuket in Thailand Tourism Awards" Long Beach : Budget price day trip, fun for the action seekers, a little busy for those looking for a quiet beach. Water sports is of same price as Banana Beach however you may to queue for turns and the standard is rated 3 star.

“Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

We had a great time at this glass bottom boat ride and saw some beautiful corals. The picnic lunch with fried fish was a treat. We did paragliding and the dip in the sea was just fantastic. Water sports are a very reasonable and fun for the family. Too many solicitors is the only nuisance in this area.

“Disappointing Trip - AVOID NIKRON MARINE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This trip to Coral Island, Phuket is so disappointing that I had to write a review immediately upon arriving back in our hotel. My girlfriend and I travelled with a company known as Nikron Marine and was told to wait in our hotel lobby between 8am to 8.20am. The bus only arrived at around 8.35am. This was still fine as we expect some delays due to traffic conditions or other pick ups. The start of our nightmare arises when we reached the pier. The driver dropped us off at a super crowded area, leaving us to search for ourselves where to go and what to do. Nikron Marine's staff or maybe just the staffs at the pier (god knows) was extremely disorganised, leaving tourists completely blur about what to do. We could only hear them yelling at each other in Thai, without the slightest knowledge of what is going on. Nevertheless, we arrived at coral island. Once we collected our snorkelling equipment, we went snorkelling and was disappointed to find minimal fishes and dead corals. We went back to shore and observed the parasailing. In our opinion, it was quite a waste of money to take their parasailing as the whole experience is properly just about a minute long. Lunch was nothing fantastic as well. Nothing much to do at coral island for the afternoon, except swimming in the sea, which has sharp objects in the sand. Our package with Nikron Marine has a free hotel transfer and hence when we got back to the pier later in the afternoon, we were picked up by one of their drivers. Our hotel is situated on a hill, and it is actually quite tedious to walk up the slope to our hotel. To our dismay, the driver dropped us off at the bottom of the hill. As my girlfriend wasn't feeling very well, we requested for the driver to drive up the hill to the lobby of the hotel, he refused and keep asking us to get off and walk up. By then, we were quite pissed off by the service provided by Nikron Marine. I guess it can be seen from our faces. Just after we got off the bus, the driver even got down his bus and started scolding us in thai. Extremely disgusting and lousy customer service!

“A bit crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Did a half day trip to the island 3200 baht (two adults, one child and one 3 year old who was free) which included about 3 hours snorkelling. This was fine for us, specially withe young kids. The beach was very crowded but the water was warm and clear and there were plenty of fish.
