What to expect
Just 15 minutes speedboat ride from Phuket’s Chalong bay is Koh Hey (Coral Island). The main beach at Coral Island is pretty crowded with tourists but this tour doesn’t go there, instead it goes to a quieter corner of the island called Banana Bay.
Here you can relax on the beach, swim and snorkel in crystal clear water, enjoy the nature of the rain forest or try some other adventure activities like kayaking, parasailing or beginner scuba diving.
This is an ideal tour for couples or families who want a taste of paradise but don’t want to spend all day on a speedboat. It’s better quality than the average Coral Island day trip with modern, uncrowded boats and professional crew.
A delicious lunch served in the Hornbill restaurant (the design is inspired by the birds that can be seen in the trees most afternoons).
