Bamboo Island has a tourism fee that you have to pay, around 400 baht. The island has nothing else to see, except a clear blue water and white sand. It was the prettiest beach we went, but there is nothing much to do. We just bathed and enjoyed the sun. There is not many fishes to snorkel.

This was our favourite island on our boat trip we got here around 4 and it was nice and quiet. Time to swim and relax on the beach. Definitely recommend visiting here.

Nice beach with clear blue waters. Surprisingly, I did not see any bamboos on Bamboo Island; but then I was busy swimming and did not explore the island much.

Beautiful beaches on this island but spoiled by the number of people now visiting. Go early to avoid the crowds.

Can you imagine the most clear water ever? Probably even on your imagination it's not as clear and blue as in Bamboo Island. Go there and don't forget your snorkel. And my advice: get your own long tail boat, go early in the morning and visit the place before all tourist arrive. Access fee: 400 baths per person.

One of the saddest parts of the entire trip! The arrival to the beach is wonderful, and the island is indeed gorgeous - but I do not have the heart to give this anything about 2 stars because of the TERRIBLE condition of the coral... It is completely dead! The worst part is that we are charged 400 baht per... More

We rented a private long tail boat via Mr Chet and went over about 4pm and watched the sunset. Beautiful white sand and clear turquoise water. Amazing beaches.

I like it all as the island itself is truly pure and nice. The beach is so white sandy beach. It's very peachful and clean water.
