Phi Phi Islands

Phi Phi Islands

Phi Phi Island is located between the large Island of Phuket and the Andaman Sea, and is a part of Krabi Province. There are two main islands, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Ley and 4 smaller islands which overflow with fine sandy white beaches that give way to soaring limestone cliffs to form spectacular scenery. Add crystal clear water, a refreshing lack of roads, plus a laid-back lifestyle, it’s easy to see why Phi Phi is one of southern Thailand’s most popular destinations.  

Phi Phi Don has two separate mountain ranges which are connected by a narrow strip of land in the middle.  It's also the main island for accommodation ranging from simple beach side bungalows to luxury up-market resorts.  The twin bays of Tonsai Bay in the south and Lo Dalam Bay in the north offer fantastic diving and snorkeling.  Not far from Lo Dalam Bay is Monkey Beach, a small sandy beach only accessible by boat.

While Tonsai Bay and Loh Dalum Bay might be the most popular beaches they are by no means the best beaches.  It's definitely worth exploring the other beaches such as Loh Lana Bay on the west coast and Laem Tong at the northern most point of the island as well as all the beaches along the east coast.  One of the best ways to see the whole of the island, is to take a walk to the Pee Pee Viewpoint, from here the views overlooking the twin bays of Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Ley are simply unforgetable.

Bamboo Island, just north east of Phi Phi Don is a small idyllic island with more glorious beaches with more reefs for snorkeling.

Phi Phi Ley is the second largest island, completely devoid of human inhabitants and is where the movie "The Beach" was filmed starring Leonardo Dicaprio (Maya Bay).  Maya Bay, an absolutely gorgeous bay is sheltered by 100-metre high cliffs on three sides. Inside the bay there are several beaches, most are small and some only exist at low tide. The main one around 200 metres long with silky soft white sand, vibrant coral and exotic fish is an exceptional sight.

Explore the nearby Viking Cave or just relax at Samah or Pileh Bay and take in the breathtaking views.
