This 2.5 kilometer long island’s name doesn’t refer to an underwater paradise. The literal translation of its name is ‘Crowded Island’. Which is understandable, as this is among the closest of islands you can make a day trip to around Phuket. It is recommended that you spend the night. Dining options here are very romantic.
Now while most of the crowd hangs out at Long Beach, and you will find bars pumping music, serving beers, bringing your food and drinks to your sun bed on a beach which constantly has boats coming in and out, most people head to the islands to avoid all this.
So if you want a bit of peace and quiet try getting a boat driver to take you around to Banana Beach or Freedom Beach. Both of these beaches have better snorkeling Waterston Long Beach anyway, and are much more charming to look at too. and both these beaches have restaurants and loungers of their own.
The island also has some trails in its forest, but these can be tricky, and you should wear good shoes.
- A longtail boat to the island should cost between 1000 and 1500 baht, return trip included. 5000 baht for the speedboat.
- Charter a boat from Chalong Pier.

Definitely doesn’t look as nice as the pictures! If you’re not paying extra money to do those activities, there’s not much to do. May I remind you that the “activities” are all a huge scam. If you take a look at the picture I took, you’ll see the speed boat ride is just FIVE MINUTES LONG and if I remember correctly, it was 800 baht. There were tons of people and I felt like I would’ve enjoyed the island a tad more if there were less people. By the way, I’m so glad I didn’t rent the fins. Even though they aren’t expensive, there’s no need for any fins. The area for snorkelling is so small. There were barely any corals. At least I saw some fish and some sea urchins...
Awesome beach place, though it’s crowded it’s having life with water sports, parasailing, snorkelling, banana rides, paragliding and scuba diving. Must try coconut water which will be very good. If you experimental you can try Thai street food. Half day can be surely spent on this island.
A very recommended tour if visiting Phuket area. Definitely less people than other places. You can relax on the beach or swim around the area. Best if you have a snorkel, because the are many fishes close to the beach.
Coral island is a must see destination if you are visiting Phuket. However you must be having some interest towards beaches, corals and beach activities. The blue waters of sea is a pleasure to eyes. It is less crowded enjoyable place. It is very near to Phuket. Hardly 10 minutes drive in speed boat. Many beach activities are performed there like snorkeling, banana boat, speed boat, scooba diving, paragliding etc. Water is very clear you can enjoy spectacular view of corals. Mind your steps on some of dangerous creatures. Also use SPF 50 cream if you plan to take some sun on. You can buy it any 7 eleven store.
