  • Before we go to Maya bay we stop at bamboo island and take a swim. It was one of my best island . Water is crystal clear. I will go again there. Highly recommend.  more »
  • To reach this beach, we went to Koh Phi Phi Don. We took a private boat, which included other paradas...com the Boatman Carim + 66 (0) 87-269-5897 entry on the island is 400 baths per person. The beach has the cleanest water of all roundness, very beautiful. The ideal is to get there early, because the 10:00 the island fills up with boats and tourists.

  • We have visited Bamboo Island 3 times in 5 years. Over the years it has become more and more popular, though not as heavily impacted as Maya Beach. This place is beautiful and the snorkeling is fantastic. There is a roped off swimming area to stop you from being hit by incoming boats, but if you can manage to find a safe rocky spot to snorkel at, do so. Bring your underwater camera, there is so much to film!
  • This island is absolutely stunning! I wish i got there on my own and not on a schedule boat tour. Be aware of jelly fish according to the sings enen though there were any today. Don't look for too many things just enjoy the beach and the sun. There are also toilets on the island however i don't know their condition as i haven't been.
  • A bit crowded but still very cool place. Great for snorkelling. I recommend to be there early in the morning! We saw a big monitor lizard there!
  • I think it is the nicest of all Phi phi islands. More quiet. Spacious sandy beach.
  • A great day visit. Is crowded with tourist. Not much for fish snorkelling. But the water is amazing to swim in. Seems a little costly for a couple hour visit but they are trying to persevere a park. I recommend bringing a picnic lunch - remember what you bring in you take with you. Never swam in water like that or that colour before.

Where to stay in Ko Phi Phi Don

The harbor area in Ko Phi Phi Don offers the greatest variety of accommodations on the island. Mid-range and high-priced beach resorts and simple hotels remain the norm here, though backpacker-aimed accommodations remain available, often with decent facilities at fair prices. Away from the main tourist areas, accommodations become a little more isolated, a little more exclusive, and a little pricier.
