Banana Beach Day Trip

Indulge in the complete sun, sea and sand experience of Thailand with a day trip to the white sandy shores of Banana Beach. Your adventure begins with a speedboat ride across the Andaman Sea as you're taken from Phuket to the Koh Hey island. Here, you can explore the clear, blue water of the sea by snorkelling near the beach or paddling your clear kayaks over the water. You'll take a break only to enjoy a delicious lunch at a beachside restaurant. After a fun afternoon spent in the cool water, you can put your feet up and enjoy relaxing beach vibes with views of the Andaman Sea on the horizon.


Located on the Koh Hey island, a short boat ride away from Phuket, the Banana Beach is all about nature. The Koh Hey island itself is entirely covered with thick, green forests with only a few areas on the coast, such as the Banana Beach, accessible to travellers. These forests are home to large, colourful hornbills and hermit crabs. At the beach, the tides of the Andaman Sea, with clean and clear water, reflects several shades of blue from turquoise to teal. Here, you can relax in beach chairs under palm trees and dig your feet in to play with the white sand that covers most of Banana Beach.
