Koh Bon (Bon Island) is a small island lying some two kilometres off the beach of Rawai on the southeastern coast of Phuket. Covered with lush vegetation, this rocky islet, dotted with tiny sand coves, offers two main landing spots to its visitors: Bon Island Restaurant is ideally located between two small beaches at the northwestern tip of the island while Long Beach is a semi-private 300m-long strip of white sand situated on the northeastern coast of Koh Bon.
