I always go to Bon Island while visiting Rawai, it's a place where your dreams come true. Beautiful island with a sandy beach, and clear waters, good for snorkelling and just relaxing and let the world go by. As for the restaurant, wonderful fresh fish and chicken are just two of the culinary delights on menu. Always cooked to perfection,... More

We spent the day here and the time went too quickly, sitting on the tropical beach eating freshly caught fish cooked beautifully followed by one of Dawns famous piña coladas was heaven. The snorkelling was fantastic and made for a peaceful and relaxing day. The long tail boat drivers were helpful and friendly as we're all the staff on the... More

We had a beautiful day at Bon Island . The restaurant serves a strange style of Thai food but is is very tasty . Being a lover of beach side restaurants and great locations I must say they need to upgrade a little . The kitchen is a bit of a worry if you look inside and the toilets are... More

We spent hours on this beach and it felt like minutes.. The views are stunning, the water great for swimming and snorkeling and the beach is very clean.. It was a privilege to spend time here and I make it a life's ambition to go again.. I don't normally quote people in these reviews, but Dawn (the owner of the... More

Hi Richard I don't normally respond to reviews but wanted to reply to you. I'll be honest and say I can't remember exactly who you are as I get so many visitors, but just want to say thank you for a kind and honest review. I hope to see you back again at Bon Island again one day! Regards Dawn More

Wow, what a beautiful island . The restaurant should be ashamed of themselves for not making more of an effort . The food is ok, but half of the chairs and tables are broken a big let down . I would like to say to the owner that people not only want a clean beach but also a clean restaurant... More

Took the Longtail boat from Rawai, amazing day, Dawn gave us a very warm welcome, the food was lovely - would recommend the garlic prawns! Great spot for a good day out! Make sure you travel according to tide! You may gave to wade through the sea, which was fun but might not suit everyone.

After some poor weather over the last few weeks we decided to take a trip to Bon Island (situated just of Rawai - Southern Phuket). There are many Longtails operating from Rawai (also more distant beaches; Kata, Karon Chalong etc) so barter and you may get a reduction. We paid 800bt return, offset this by going with a group of...
