The long tail boat ride costs around 1000 Thai Baht return for two people. It’s up to you whether you want to spend 2 hours or the whole day relishing in paradise. Just let the driver know and he will pick you up at the requested time.
There are two main beach destinations on the lush, rocky islet of Bon Island. Perfectly positioned between the two beaches is Bon Island Restaurant.
Run by Dawn, a friendly English woman, who offers a delicious selection of western favorites, yummy Thai dishes, and fresh seafood. Bon Island Restaurant is open daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Apart from the Bon Island restaurant, the island has little else to offer by way of food and drinks. It is truly a perfect place to unwind, relax, soak up some sun or get into the water and try out the snorkeling.
There is plenty of shade on offer in the lush vegetation that surrounds the coastline and ventures into the jungle.
With the array of beautiful beaches and paradise islands that surround Phuket, most day trips are taken to the popular Phi Phi Islands, Bond Island, or Phang Nga. These trips can get quite busy with people, especially during the high season.
If you want something a little different, a true escape to a paradise island, with the possibility of having a whole beach to yourself, then A Day Trip to Bon Island Phuket is your ideal getaway.
