Gorgeous island with good snorkelling a short boat ride from Phuket

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.

    Wonderful beach day
    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.

    Nice day trip
    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.
