Banana Beach

Everything You Need to Know about Banana Rock Beach

Beautiful and almost deserted, Banana Beach (sometimes called 'Banana Rock Beach') is not known to many people in Phuket as it's relatively isolated. Nevertheless, it really is one of Phuket's most glittering gems as far as beaches go, and has the aura of a 'hidden beach'.

The beach is 180 metres long and features beautifully clear water. At high tide the waves can sometimes wash up as high as the tree line so care should be taken as to where you install yourself along this beach; the extreme southern and northern ends are perhaps the best bet.

How to get to Banana Beach

Banana Beach is situated between Bang Tao and Nai Thon beaches, some 500 metres north of Trisara Villas. You have to have sharp eyes to spot the beach through the trees that line the road but there are 2 places that lend access to the beach. If coming from the south (Bang Tao), pass Trisara and slow down when the road dips down.

You will see where the barbed wire fence on the left-hand side of the road is open and a wood sign was nailed to a tree: 'Banana Beach'. Park there and walk down through the trees. Alternatively, 150 metres farther on there's a white metal sign saying 'To Nai Thon' next to a small parking space. Follow the bamboo-lined trail, scale down the hill, cross the river and you will see that the trail leads to the beach's northern end. Quite a few people choose to rent a longtail from other beaches to come here. Ask for 'Hat Hin Kluay'.

Banana Beach activities

Banana Beach has fantastically clear water for swimming from November to May but is definitely not a swimming beach the rest of the year. There are several masseuses in the shade right next to the restaurant who charge around 300 baht an hour.

Banana Beach restaurants

There's a single seafood restaurant right on the beach that's open during high season. Sit in the shade of large trees and enjoy one of the loveliest spots on the island.

Prices are a bit higher than usual beach restaurants because most ingredients have to be transported from quite a distance and carried down the hill on foot. Fish is very fresh as fishermen deliver it right to the beach.
