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.

“Snorkel @ Coral Island, Good value for Baht”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

good snorkling, recommend taking a 10 minute hike around the corner to Banana beach, better snorkling here and much less peoples than the beach where the boat drops you as every body hangs around here (just listen to the initial instructions from the guide before you take off as there are certain sea creatures you need to be aware of). Take a stroll up the beach to the local resort for a great feed. We booked through the travel lady beside Mcdonalds in Patong, pamphlet price was 1400 BHT per person, she did it for 700 BHT with out having to negotiate much at all. We buy our own snorkel on Patong Beach for 350 BHT so we didn't have to use their dirty old things.

“Joyful day trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

In Coral island program we enjoyed high speed boat riding, swimming, snorkeling and relaxing on the beach. The most interesting part was snorkeling in clear water of Coral island and watching colorful fish. You can spend all day on the beach of Coral island with white sand, clear blue water and sunny weather. Additional activities like banana boat, sea walking and parasailing are also available (of course with additional fee). The program includes fruit and lunch (lunch was mediocre) but for a locker you have to pay extra fee.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Had a great day out on Coral Island. Hired a long tail with friends, lovely way to go. Had a sensational day swimming and snorkeling with coral and fish basically a step into the water. Everything available on the island, snorkeling gear, food, drink. Highly recommended day out.

“Soooooo Relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Me & my girlfriend paid a local to take us to Coral Island on a long boat, never been there before he took us to a part of the island that was away from the tourist parts, like banana boating which we could see. The little beach we were at had a restaurant which made the best seafood coconut soup we had on our trip, there was only about 30 people on this little paradise beach i loved it & can't wait to take my family back in May this year.
