Attractions Phi Phi Islands
Phi Phi Island
is famous for its magnificent beauty; the water is clear with white
Its virgin nature and its tranquil environment always attract hundreds
of visitors a day. You can appreciate the incredibly picturesque
panorama with the idyllic tropical beaches lining along the shores.
Phi Phi Don
Don, the larger of the two, is visited for its incredibly picturesque
panorama with the idyllic tropical beaches lining its southern and
eastern shores. The soaring lime stone mountains embrace the narrow
crescent bays, offering the scenically beautiful panorama. To get the
remarkably magnificent view, you stroll along the path at the backside
of Ton Sai Village to reach the viewpoint which offers the excellent
view of sunrise. On the eastern and southern shore of Phi Phi Don,
there lie along several beautiful beaches; Lo Bakao Bay, Laem Tong
Beach, Long Beach, and Lo Dalam Bay.
Lo Bakao is a wide bay offering a various kinds of water sport
Tong Beach is easily accessed, located near the centre of the island
and; like the other bays and beaches on Koh Phi Phi- can be accessed
by foot through minor effort. The beach itself is at the end of a
moderately lengthed jungle walk, but reasonably uncrowded and home
to shallow, clear water and a sandy shore. The scenery around the
bay is gorgeous, and a go-to place for those looking for a quiet,
pleasant beach to spend the day, or have a swim. Not far from the
shore of Laem Tong, are islands such as the Bamboo Island National
Park- perfect for snorkeling and diving, but perhaps too far to swim
Long Beach lies on the
southernmost tip of the Phi Phi Don; its sand is clean and the abundant bed of coral of
the Hin Pae Island offshore is excellent for diving. A 30-minute-walk or a 20 Baht-long-
tail-boat-ride from Ton Sai Beach is required to reach the beach.
does not only offer amazing views and a spectacular beachfront
location- but also has multiple resorts and restaurants nearby,
making it an amazing spot for spending the day, or enjoying even
late night swims. The beach itself is, as the name suggests, long
stretching and has great views of Phi Phi Le. Not only this, but
Long Beach’s water, along with the larger majority of Koh Phi Phi’s
beaches is clean, safe and opens up a plethora of activities to
spend aside from beach crawling and swimming. Roaming from resort to
the beach, and finishing the day on Thailands best seafood wraps
Long Beach up into what would be the perfect day. For the most part,
the beach is calm all but for some exceptions throughout the year.
Snorkeling is also a viable option as Long Beach is also home to
nearby coral reefs, stocked full with the islands naturally large
Loh Dalam Bay
Dalum is only a short walk away from Koh Phi Phi’s centre and is
perfect for relaxed beach crawling. Not surprisingly, the scenery is
spectacular, as are with most beaches around the island, and the
water calm and shallow- wonderful for swimming. Though quite popular
during the day, the beach is less crowded and much more casual in
the evenings and at night. Though for those wish to spend a large
amount of time in Loh Dalum, there are limited shops nearby, and it
might be a good idea to either bring something with you.
Ton Sai Bay
is a beach near Krabi in Thailand, offering a combination of
inexpensive accommodation and great rock climbing routes that make
it popular with both backpackers and climbers alike. Compared to
neighbouring Raileh and Ao Nang it's relatively rough around on the
edges; in particular, the beach gets unsuitable for swimming and
becomes quite rocky as the tide goes out. But this only happens for
about ten days every moon period. The rest of the time the beach is
suitable for swimming although not overly sanitary, take care and
use antiseptic on all cuts.
Nui bay is
located along the west coast of Phi Phi Don island. Two large rocks
sit in front of the bay, offering some exciting swimthroughs and
rare macro life.
Phi Leh (Phi Phi Ley)
Phi Phi Le
is an uninhabited island whose natural beauty is still unspoiled. The
island is mostly composed of towering limestone cliffs that spring up at
right angles with the blue water surface. The water is brightly
turquoise with the abundant coral reefs and species of fish. There are
several magnificent beaches and scenic islands standing offshore. There
is no accommodation on Phi Phi Lei, as most of the island is composed of
sheer cliffs and small lagoons with teeming fish. Trips leave every day
for sightseeing and snorkelling, especially good for beginners as the
water is warm, absolutely clear, and shallow.
famous as a location for the Hollywood film "The Beach." Great for snorkelling,
lots of coral gardens and colourful fish, although can get a little busy in high season!
Maya Bay is
another wonderful beach, and has been a huge tourist attraction for
Koh Phi Phi for years. The beach itself is mainly accessed by boats
which can be caught for a reasonable. The shore of the bay was
altered due to the movie, ‘The Beach’, in the 90’s and was changed
considerably. However, despite a large lawsuit that ensued after the
time of the land developments, the beach remains to be as gorgeous
as ever, if not more- surrounded by steep cliffs and green
vegetation. The water itself is safe, shallow and crystal clear.
Another perfect spot for relaxing, snorkeling and swimming the bay.
Cliff jumping in some area’s is also a popular activity, and a great
source of fun. Maya Bay is one of the places Koh Phi Phi offers that
you would be stupid not to visit.
tropical paradise of Phi Phi Island is composed of two islands: Phi
Phi Don and Phi Phi Ley. Although Phi Phi Don is the main island,
Phi Phi Ley has quite a bit to offer tourists. Loh Samah Beach is
located on the much smaller island of Phi Phi Ley. Since this entire
island is surrounded by limestone walls, very little damaged was
sustained by the tsunami. To this day, the island and beaches shine
like a precious gem.
the Phi Phi Ley island is uninhabited, it is still a common stopping
destination for tourists and diving trips. Most diving trips stop at
Loh Samah Beach since the southern coastline bay provides shallow
diving for beginners. The cliffs and caves can also provide shelter
from the sun and rain. More experienced divers head towards the
seaward side of the Loh Samah Beach pinnacle because the current can
be fairly strong.
The Pileh Cove
is in the South Eastern Part of Phi Phi Le Island and is part of the
Phi Phi Island National Park and just before the small bida nok and
bida nai ...
is the immense cave named after the pictographs on the wall of the cave which indistinctly
resemble to ancient Viking ships. This cave was renamed by H.M Rama IX when he visited it
in 1972, which resembles in shape the head of the great serpent of Buddhist legend is a
revered place of local people who come to collect the swift's nests that is used to make
Bird's Nest Soup, a Chinese delicacy. The cave is a spectacular scene created by the
nature itself; cave and a sea lake formed by a clef between the two cliffs that allows
water to enter into a bowl-shaped canyon wherein several nice hidden beaches are shaped.
Visitors can stop to relax and snorkel here.
Island National Park is home to an untouched environment and some of
the best snorkeling locations Thailand has to offer. Whether you
want to enjoy yourself on the far stretching, white beaches along
the islands coast, it’s also an amazing spot for snorkeling as the
island is rich with an abundance of timid marine life just off the
shore. Snorkeling day trips are also an optional activity, filling
up your days schedule with plenty of activities from morning until
late afternoon, including boat tours, time on the beach, delicious
buffett’s and more. Truly an epic way to spend the day.
