What To Expect

Coral Island, known locally as Koh Hae, an absolute paradise only ten kilometers south of Phuket. It’s a beautiful getaway destination, good diving, and snorkeling spots. Snorkeling here is well suited to novice snorkelers and children as you can swim to the shallow reef from the beach. The island is surrounded by coral reefs and has two long stretches of white sand. A short walk over the island’s hill leads to a small, quiet cove and an idyllic peaceful beach with crystal clear waters.  There are a lot of tropical fish and they’re just waiting for you to feed them.  Coral Island has no shortage of fun. The island features two main beaches, Long Beach and Banana Beach.  Banana Beach is exciting for snorkeling and if you go out far enough from Long Beach you will also have a lot to discover, at its impressive coral reef. 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.

Beach Activities on Coral Island, both beaches have a lot of water sports activities. Enjoy fun water activities on a private island with our professional staff. Try out the exciting banana boat ride with your friends, parasailing, walk on the ocean floor with sea walking, get up close to the marine life with the discover scuba diving. Spend time to relax on the beach, tanning, reading, swim, or kayaking.  Coral Island is ideal for a day trip with multiple activities to choose from. Deck chairs and sun loungers can be free with the day tour.

Cancel if bad weather!!!

There was bad weather on the day but the trip still went ahead. However, once we got to the island we were told we werenu2019t going to be taken to the snorkelling area due to the weather as it was too dangerous. We were also told none of the optional activities were going ahead, because of the weatheru2026 We were told we could snorkel off the beach where we were but the water was murky and there wasnu2019t any marine life anyway. We tried to snorkel, went for a swim and when getting out asked for the u201cprovidedu201d towels to which we were told there werenu2019t any and we had to rent or buy a towel if we wanted one! Ultimately we were trapped on an island with nothing to do for 6 hours. You couldnu2019t even go exploring as the beach is in a cove with rocks and deep rainforest on each side. I donu2019t understand why the trip went ahead if we couldnu2019t do any of the planned activities??? This was a waste of a day for us. We could have stayed in Phuket and done other things! We booked this trip as we wanted to ensure we went snorkelling while there but would have appreciated them cancelling the trip so our time wasnu2019t wasted.

Cancel if weather looks bad!!!

It was bad weather and it wasnu2019t until we reached the island we were told we couldnu2019t go to the snorkelling area as the weather made it dangerous, then told none of the optional activities were runningu2026because of the weather. Itu2019s a sectioned off piece of beach with hills and jungle surrounding it but you canu2019t go exploring. So we basically just sat on the beach for 6 hrs with intermittent rain. Went to ask for the u201cprovidedu201d towel and told they didnu2019t have any and weu2019d have to rent or buy a towel. Would have preferred to be told itu2019s bad weather and be given an option not to go. Felt it was a whole day wasted as we were trapped once we were on the island and not told we couldnu2019t do anything until we got there. The next day half of our group didnu2019t go on another tour we had booked as they were concerned about something similar happening and didnu2019t want to waste another day.

No Corals in Coral Island

Do NOT take this trip! nIt's a scam and even though the island you visit is called Coral Island, there are NO corals to be seen at all!nAccording to our guide, due to the Tsunami in 2004, the corals were destroyed and disappeared. nAs the whole purpose of our trip was to snorkel and see corals, we were extremely disappointed as there is not much else to do there and it was a waist of a day (and money).

Great day on a close island

We had elderly parents and children with us. It was an easy 15 min boat ride to the island. The buffet lunch was a choice of 4 dishes and there was plenty to eat. We took our own snacks. The pier was a floating one so a bit tricky to walk on for the elderly people but we did it.

Relaxing Island Cruise

Every thing was perfect from the hotel pickup to hotel drop off.nThe staff were great very informative and upbeat. Location was great very relaxing.

Not the best tour experience

Not the best beach, littered with trash.nRented a SUP but the paddle was broken (wouldn't extend) and the people renting it didn't seem to care. They clearly don't know much about paddleboarding as they tried to give me a kayak paddle.nLunch options were poor for a vegetarian.n

Coral island

The best trip by far. The people were super nice and accommodated us with drinks and snorkel gear for free. The location was spectacular. Had an entire day on the island compared to others that were a few hours. No end of activities that were cheap. Love love loved it, highly recommended.

You could find better options

Wouldnu2019t recommend, no instructions on their signalling and they donu2019t send you the photos as promised

The coral island tour was well organised and such an amazing experience. Nothing was rushed and my fiancu00e9 and I had a great day! The only thing that needs attention is the scramble to find what bus we were supposed to get on. Everyone was panicking and the tour guide was nowhere to be seen. Apart from that we had a fantastic day! I would definitely book this tour again! ud83dude01

Good but not great

It wasnu2019t the best tour ever but the guide was nice and the activities were good but make sure to bring money to do extra things because you sit on the beach for almost 5 hours and if you donu2019t have much you just end up sitting on the beach for hours with nothing to do personally I wouldnu2019t do this again but lunch was good ud83dudc4dud83cudffc

Great half day trip

We had a great trip to Coral Island, the price is definitely worth what you get - pick up and return, boat trip, lunch, breakfast, refreshments and snorkelling. Had enough time for activities and relaxation.

Beautiful beach

Beach is beautiful clear and lovely to have a swim, sun-bake and a drink. Food average. Where you go snorkelling is dirty no life Coral to be seen wouldn't recommend this part of the day trip.

Relaxing way to spend the first half of your day

Racha Island has itu2019s own beach side hotel (only guests allowed there tho). We arrived at the beach firstu2026water was great and crystal clear. We then went to the back of the island for snorkeling. Again crystal clear water and and can see a variety of marine life (albeit Iu2019m sure the coral reef was much more thriving before)nnOverall enjoyableu2026.we then went to Coral Island for lunch

Great day trip

Well organized, affordable trip. Staff were great too. Only thing is there was basically 0 reef, really sad to see it all ruined by the boats. Apart from that, beach was really nice.

Great time

Great trip. Well organized. Food was good too. Trip to Coral Island is just 10 minutes by speedboat. This is my 2nd time, would do it again.

Great time and amazing value for the money

The tour was great, Spicy is an amazing guide and helped us no matter whether it was my sea sickness or getting towels. We had a great time and recommend this tour to anybody who stays in phuket! (we wish that other tourists would expect the mandatory mask requirements, it's really not that hard to put it on when you're in the car and next to other people.)

Chilled day on a beautiful island ud83cudfdd

My partner and I had a great time, the morning transfer from the hotel to the meeting point and then the marina seemed quite unorganised but still with it, its worth it. nThe team were super friendly and funny, the island is beautiful ud83dude0d nIf youre expecting a day full of activities and adventure this tour might not do it but if you're in the market for a chilled back day in a beautiful location with good food and cold drinks definitely give it a go

good experience

Relaxing trip to the sea This time with 2 small, coral island half-day trip is a good choice; less than half an hour, easy to play or snorkel at the beach for about 2 hours, good experience.
