Koh Bon near Phuket

14. March 2021Nok0

Koh Bon is a small island lying some 2 km off the beach of Rawai on the southeastern coast of Phuket. Covered with lush vegetation, this rocky islet, dotted with tiny sand coves, offers 2 main landing spots to its visitors.

The easiest way to get to Koh Bon is to hire a long-tail boat at Rawai’s jetty or along Rawai Beach, which costs about 1,000 to 1,200 baht for a 2-way trip that should take no more than 15 minutes each way (depending on the weather and sea conditions). The long-tail boat’s captain will drop you at Bon Island Restaurant and will let you know the time at which he will come to pick you up.

Koh Bon’s highlights

About 1.2 km at its longest and 500 metres at its widest, Koh Bon is a rather small piece of land, yet it hosts a great variety of wildlife. Apart from hermit crabs and other crustaceans, the island is home to many monitor lizards, local birds, and insects. This wildlife, plus all the marine life that abounds off its coasts (especially in the island’s south-west, which is a good snorkelling spot) make Bon Island a great and easily accessible getaway from Phuket.
