Banana Beach

Phuket's Best Secret Beach

Banana Beach would have to be one of Phuket's best kept secret beaches and is definitely one of our favorite beaches.

The hardest thing is finding where it is!

Banana Beach in Phuket is quiet, peaceful and relaxing.

As we love to share our travel tips with other travelers to Phuket, we will let you in on where this secluded and somewhat secret beach can be found.

Banana Rock Beach is located on the north west coast of Phuket, hiding between Bang Tao and Nai Thon Beaches, just south of the Andaman White Beach Resort and around 500 metres north of Trisara Villas.

This beautiful secluded, beach is also known as Banana Rock Beach, due to the rocky formations that divides the beachfront into two.

The Beach is around 180 metres long and is never crowded, one can only hope that it stays this way.....

On high tide the waves have been known to wash up as far as the tree line, so just check that you don't put your belongings to close to the waters edge.

This secret and well hidden beach in Phuket is well worth finding.

Activities at Banana Rock Beach

From November through to April the water is calm and crystal clear, and is a top spot for swimming and snorkeling.

At either end of the beach are rocks, which are great if you want to go snorkeling.

Accommodation At Banana Rock Beach

There is no accommodation directly on the beachfront.

Although close by you will find the Trisara Hotel or the upmarket and very luxurious Phuket Pavilions.

Both these resorts have private pool villas and are located in the hills with stunning views over the sea.

Just to the north of Banana Beach is the very private five star Andaman White Beach Resort.

How To Get To Banana Beach

Many visitors arrive by longtail boat from one of the nearby beaches.

A picture perfect beach in Phuket.

However, you can also use the trail that leads down to the beach from the coast road.

Phuket's best hidden beach can be found just through these tree's.

Sign to Banana Beach

Heading north just past the Trisara Resort you will see a small parking area.

Keep an eye for a small sign that is posted on a tree along the road.

From here head down the trail which is a little steep, although you won't need much more than thongs on your feet.

Don't blink or you could miss the sign and the track that leads through the tree's onto one of Phuket's best beaches.

This beach is so secluded, not many people ever find this hidden treasure.
