One of the smallest islands off Phuket’s south-east coast, Bon Island (also known as Koh Bon) can easily be reached by the local long-tail boat or speed boat from any of Phuket’s main beaches.
Enjoy the scenery as you travel along Phuket Island’s west coast from Patong, Karon or Kata beaches. Ask your boat driver to stop at the south-west corner of Bon Island for snorkelling (don’t forget to bring some bread with you to feed the fish!).
When you arrive at Bon Island find somewhere to relax in the shadow of one of the many Dtery trees, however we don’t recommend falling asleep under a coconut tree! As you walk around, be sure to look for the different kinds of Wildlife found on the island, especially the hundreds of Hermit Crabs as they search for food or a new shell to move into. After lunch spend your time relaxing on the beach, explore the underwater world or simply take a look around the rock-pools at low tide.
If you have the time, relax until late afternoon, take some interesting photos then order one of our many cocktails and watch the sun go down.
When you get back home again don’t forget to add your photos of Bon Island to our Facebook page and share your experience with others!
