I read about this restaurant on Facebook before our trip and made sure we checked it out. It's a quick ride by boat and definitely worth the trip. Our food was great and very fresh. Dawn came to check on us and was so sweet to stay and chat awhile. After our lunch we got some beers and hung out on the beach. The spot is just gorgeous and there's a nice quiet beach for private sunbathing and relaxing. It's definitely a hidden gem and one of our favorite experiences in Phuket.

Forget the bigger islands - do yourself a favour & take a longtail boat trip (15mins) to the beautiful Bon Island - great little restaurant with nice food & cold drinks. Thanks Dawn nice to have met you :-)

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 :)
