CORAL ISLAND (or others) by LONG TAIL BOAT

The thrill of travelling to one of Phuket's many outlaying islands by "long tail boat" is an inexpensive and exciting way to experience how many Thai people travel on the water. The long wooden boats, powered by a single petrol engine driving a large propeller attached to a long "tail" easily glide through the water taking you to many destinations off the shores of Phuket. There is the option of booking a day trip on a long tail boat through one of the many Tour Companies in Phuket, or for guests at The Villas, we can arrange a long tail boat directly with the operators at Rawai Beach.

Rawai Beach is located within a few minutes drive of the Villas, and is lined with long tail boats and single and twin engine speedboats. You have the choice of either boat, but the long tail boats are considerably less in daily rental price than speed boats and are recommended for parties of older children and adults.

If you wish to experience the water and Coral Island by SPEED BOAT or on a DAY CRUISE,
please see further details below, after long tail boat options.


The recommended destination by LONG TAIL BOAT is Coral Island, as this has two beaches to choose from, "Long Beach" and "Banana Beach", both offering beautiful long stretches of sand, sun beds and deck chairs, restaurants and toilets, plus a designated area for swimming and snorkelling in crystal clear water.

1 long tail boat from Rawai Beach costs approximately 1,400 Baht (depending on Season) and holds a maximum of 8 people.

To give you an idea of long tail boats, as there is no official website available, please take a look here.

If you prefer to visit Coral Island using the comfort and security of a Travel Company to organize your trip, we recommend:

JAMES BOND ISLAND:
James Bond Island is part of Phang Nga bay. We recommend trips to the bay with both Tai Wai Travel and Coral Seekers, but it is possible to rent a longtail boat or speed boat from Rawai beach to get to the bay (this will reduce the price, but it also means that there is not a company arranging the whole tour for you, so it is completely your decision which to do) – although we recommend taking a speedboat and not a long tail boat (if you do not go with a tour company) as the sea can get rough and you are not as safe on a long tail boat going long distances. Cruises to Phang Nga bay and James Bond Island are also available, for example the June Bahtra cruise:

James Bond Island, known originally and locally as Ko Tapu or Nail Island, found fame through the 1974 Bond film "The Man with the Golden Gun". The film starred Roger Moore and Christopher Lee (as the three nippled arch–villain Scaramanga) but it was the scenic topography that helped make the film into a firm Bond favourite. It also turned the previously unknown Phang Nga Bay into a major tourist attraction.

While the tour bus and long tail boat trips are more commonly promoted in tourist areas it is companies like June Bahtra that offer more exclusive and enjoyable trips. In fact fans of the film may prefer to take the trip they offer as you take a Junk similar to the boat that Scaramanga had. They offer sunset cruises that are famed for their romantic atmosphere and are hugely popular with those that want a more relaxed tour.
