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...

Bon Island is truly a Tropical Island Paradise. The Island is situated just off the tip of Southern Phuket - and easily reached by Longtail Boat from Rawai (the trip only takes approx 15 minutes). If you arrive early, you can be lucky enough to have this island paradise all to yourself for a few hours - what a luxury.... More

Am reluctant to write a review because I don't want more people knowing about this place. We hired a long tail boat from patong beach and told the captain we wanted to go somewhere where we can swim, eat and get a beer but we don't want to see 20 speed boats and a 100 people. He took us to... More

Just a few minutes from Phuket's east coast brings you to another world with a great beach, swimming and snorkeling. And great food too. A day to forget about everything and load your batteries. Perfect family day-out.
