Phukets' Tranquil Escape

Escape to Beauty

Banana Beach curves along the eastern side of the small island in a sweeping crescent shape, which is why it is called “Banna Beach”. It is hemmed in by lush jungle-covered hillsides on three sides. Swaying palm trees line the beach, offering pockets of shade to tucked-away sun loungers and low-key beach clubs serving cold drinks and fresh seafood. Once you arrive at the beach you can get your sundeck bungalow or you can simply opt out for a nice beach chair on the sunny side of the white sandy beach.

One of the biggest draws of Banana Beach is its tranquil atmosphere. The private and quiet setting gives guests a relaxing time in peace. Here on Banana Beach, you will very seldom find a lot of visitors crowding the beach. Coming to Banana Beach in Phuket makes it the perfect place to savor the simple pleasures of the seaside.

Moreover, you can enjoy reading a book while digging your toes into the powdery sands, or even taking a refreshing dip in the calm turquoise waters. Many visitors try their hands at paddleboarding, or sea kayaking along the shore. As a result, the peaceful island has many activities to do. As it is during the day, Banana Beach truly comes alive at sunset.

So while you are enjoying the pristine sun and relaxing, you can grab a cocktail from one of the casual beachfront bars. In fact you can find a spot to watch as the sun sets slowly below the Andaman horizon. As the sun begins setting the sky ablaze in brilliant shades of orange, pink, and purple. It’s a nightly display of nature’s magic that never fails to inspire awe.

Some guests even opt for a room with a view overlooking the beach. For dining, seafood is unsurprisingly the star of the show. Pull up a chair at one of the simple thatched-roof restaurants lining the beach and feast on fresh-caught fish, prawns, crabs, and more while your toes play in the sand. Or splurge on an elegant multi-course meal featuring innovative Thai-fusion cuisine at one of the upscale villa resorts.
