It's a small Muslim village with facilities for docking boats and other boat-related services.

Where to eat in Ban Ko En?
  • Laem Phraeo Seafood: This restaurant is at the very end of the road. Not many reviews, but good marks from customers who had been there. Probably better to head straight to Phuket Yacht Haven for a meal.
  • The Living Room Seafood Restaurant & Bar: This little restaurant is just before you reach the end of the road, and is also worth a try. They have more reviews and higher ratings than the Laem Phraeo Seafood.
