Coral Island, known locally as Koh Hae, is a beautiful getaway destination located three kilometres southeast of Phuket. The island features two main beaches, Long Beach and Banana Beach. The name of the island says it all; the snorkeling off Banana Beach is thrilling and if you go out far enough from Long Beach you will also have a lot to discover, at its impressive coral reef. At night this location is beautifully calm; by day it is quite busy with day tourists but peace and quiet can be found at the extremities of both beaches. Deck chairs and sun loungers can be rented and come free.
Highlights: One can partake in a wide range of water sports activities - banana boats, canoes, and snorkeling
Getting there: Few miles off the coast of Phuket
