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.

If you like snorkeling, come to coral island. You will see various fish in this spot. You can also play jetski with slow wave. You can go here with a day phi phi island tour

Stayed at the Coral Island Resort for a few nights. Beaches were beautiful, touristy during the day but very quiet in the evenings. Resort staff were helpful and friendly, room was ok, the restaurant at the resort, the only available after 4 pm, the service was very slow, food was ok, nothing to write home about for sure.

Really beautiful, but absolutely rammed with tourists, noise, diesel fumes, banana boats etc. Unless that's your thing probably best not to bother. In saying that the sea is lovely there.

Absolutely amazing, breath taking, I would highly recommend. Most organised island I have ever been in in Thailand, staff very efficient and welcoming. Prices were expensive but I don't think you can expect anything less when you are on a small island. Facilities were of a very high standard, clean and well maintained. The water is crystal clear, you can... More

The coral island can be reached via a speed boat ride from the beach. It has activities like parasailing, underwater walk, glass bottom boat, banana boat ride, etc. Good if one is interested in beach activities. One can enjoy great seafood on the beach shacks though.

I really don't like bumpy speedboat rides. They are just tolerable. The snorkelling is very enjoyable in the warm waters. Pleasant lunch at the island, (proper name is Raya Island) followed by a rapid transit back to Phuket Port.

Absolutely fantastic beach to swim in. Clear water with white sand. Not many fish to see and plenty of rock but the deep water makes it easy to swim in and the warmth of the water just compliments it

The speedboat ride from Chalong pier was 40 minutes of born jarringly bumpy travel with most passengers ending up wet - so be prepared! Raja island beach was beautiful - white sandy beach and crystal clear water. The pictures don't lie.. Note tat visits to the toilet cost 20 baht and hire of beach mats and umbrellas is expensive.

We just got back from coral island. First of all, the package details: 2,000 Baht per person (via one of the tourist info shops in Chalong (Nikorn marine)). Including the round trip, parasailing, lunch, mask and snorkel, benches and two small bottles of water (one when you arrive and one at lunch - bring more water!!). (1,500B without parasailing) Not...
