We visited Bon island yesterday. We asked longtail boat driver to take us there for snorkelling and having lunch. First the driver took us on the right side of the island where it was perfect to snorkel. Felt like Robinson Crusoe on lonely island. Then after some time we drove to the restaurant beach and we spent some few hours in the Dawns restaurant. I also had the best swimming in there, cause in Kao Lak and Phuket it has been for 2 weeks so high waves that I cannot swim normally. Lot of fishes were just swimming with me :)

Fresh fish garlic and pepper was yammy!

We visited the island during 14:00-17:30 and low tide started from around 16:00. You can see in Rawai beach also how the sea looks like and is it low or high tide.

Some reviews are negative and saying that low tide makes island ugly. Prrrr....the island was sooooo good in any points!

PS! Did not see any speed boats at that time :) Really calm experience!

A very special place, once seen never to be forgotten. This place is so idyllic its a must and everyone visiting Rawai should not miss the opportunity to take the longboat over to this little spot of paradise with excellent food away from the bustle of Rawai life. Have visited on many occasions for snorkelling and just chilling.

Bon Island is the paradise you all dream of. White sand, clear blue sea and most importantly, not crowded with hundreds of people!!

The restaurant here is simple but serves great food!

Definitely visit bon island for a get away!

Didn't want to review as it will attract more people :)

This is a little gem - not for snorkeling or diving but a great spot for a long tail boat ride for a superb lunch - both the meal and the setting are great on this island near phuket

Went to Bon island and got there about 10 before many other tourists. Took a long tail from rawai beach for 1200 baht return. On arrival we were greeted by the staff and promptly got some nice deck chairs and ran for the shade. The beach is very rocky but the water is beautiful. The restaurant was great and all staff were just as accommodating as I found in previous reviews. Overall had a great day but if you plan on taking kids take some surf thongs or even for yourself. Tip for young players: get there early to get yourself a good spot.
