Coral Bay

Coral Island, known locally as Koh Hae, is a beautiful getaway destination located three kilometres southeast of Phuket. The island features two main beaches, Long Beach and Banana Beach.

It’s not called Coral Island for nothing; the snorkeling off Banana Beach is thrilling and if you go out far enough from Long Beach you will also have a lot to discover, at its impressive coral reef.


How to Get to Coral Island

You can rent a longtail boat at either Rawai Beach or Chalong pier. Alternatively, book a snorkeling day trip and you will be taken by speedboat (traveling time, 15 minutes from Chalong) and provided with a mask, fins and snorkel as well as a buffet lunch. The cost of this trip (1000 baht) is not much more than renting a longtail and it is certainly quicker.

If you land at Long Beach and want to check out Banana Beach there is a trail at the eastern end of the beach that leads through the jungle. Walking time is around 15 minutes and it is highly advisable to wear good shoes as surfaces are uneven and the going not exactly easy. This trail is not for the elderly or for those with small children.


Facilities on the Beach

At night this location is beautifully calm; by day it is quite busy with day trippers but peace and quiet can be found at the extremities of both beaches.

Deck chairs and sun loungers can be rented and come free (at the resort) with the day tour.
