Banana Island: A Slice of Paradise in Thailand

Have you ever dreamed of visiting a tropical island with crystal clear water, white sand beaches, and lush green forests?

If so, you might want to add Banana Island to your bucket list. Banana Island is one of the most beautiful attractions in Phuket, and it’s only a short speedboat ride away from the mainland.

Banana Island, also known as Koh Hey or Coral Island, is a small island located about 9 km south of Phuket.

It got its name from the shape of its main beach, which curves like a banana.

The beach is also known as Banana Beach, and it’s a hidden gem that not many tourists know about.

Banana Beach is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature.

You can swim in the turquoise water, snorkel among the colorful coral reefs, or sunbathe on the soft sand. You can also rent a beach chair and an umbrella, or treat yourself to a massage on the beach.

If you’re feeling hungry, you can have a delicious seafood lunch at the restaurant on the beach, which serves fresh catch from the local fishermen.

If you’re looking for more adventure, you can also explore the other parts of the island. You can hike through the jungle trails, visit the viewpoint on the hilltop, or try some water sports such as kayaking, parasailing, or banana boat riding. You can also visit some of the other beaches on the island, such as Long Beach or Freedom Beach, which are less crowded and more secluded.

Banana Island is a great destination for a day trip from Phuket. You can book a tour package that includes round-trip speedboat transfer, snorkeling equipment, lunch, and insurance. You can also opt for a private speedboat or catamaran transfer if you want more flexibility and privacy.

The best time to visit Banana Island is from November to April, when the weather is sunny and dry.

Banana Island is a slice of paradise that you don’t want to miss when you’re in Phuket. It’s a place where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of nature.

It’s a place where you can go bananas on Banana Island! :)
