  • It is a beautiful beach, with crystal clear water but when swimming remember to wear shoes/sandals etc as the bottom is quite rocky. Worthtaking a day to picnic if you like sitting on a beach.  more »

  • 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.
