Part of our wonderful long tail boat trip to James Bond Island. Food was okay. Interesting history and good to support the people on the island. But please tourists please DO NOT encourage the man with the poor gibbon dressed in human clothes. It’s cruel...More
A stop on this island was a part of our tour. We came here for lunch. The food was good. However, the only thing to do on this island was shop. I wanted to sightsee not shop.

This was our lunch stop during a speed boat tour. Lunch was great, but walking around the village with our guide was very educational.

Koh Panyi has a cool climate. Within the island there are houses of villagers. Created from natural materials. There is a small football field for children in the village. There are plenty of fresh seafood and food.

Try contacting Boonchu Pier for a private long tail boat to take you there. Very good service and very affordable way to avoid a big crowded boat. We did a full island tour with them, but I am sure they would be available to just take and drop you off at Koh Panyi for a visit as long as you want to stay there. It is worth lunch and about an hour or two to walk around. Fantastic food with very generous portions and great service.
Yes, the full island hopping tour does go out to all the touristy places but I would still consider it, and the private long tail boat was great for a couple reasons:
1. It is just you and your friends/family
2. Overall it is cheaper than what I was seeing for the speedboat tours.
3. You can leave at whatever time you want, since you don't have to wait for other people. We left at 6 AM, and really avoided most of the crowds everywhere we went, including James Bond Island
Boonchu Pier's number is 093-795-6748. We booked our tour through Alex Taxi Phuket-they have a great website and are really good about emailing. You could send him an email and ask about arranging something specifically to your liking or choose the full day island hopping tour. Included hotel pick up and drop off through Alex.
Probably your hotel could contact the pier too if you want and inquire, might be easier that way.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
