Take a trip to Bamboo Island, a secluded spot with a sandy beach and coral reefs.

  • We took a trip there for around 3000 BTH (approx 1000 SEK), from p. P Relax. We had my whole family 5, 4 8 12 and two adults. Once we took us snorkelling equipment and staring at some 30 Chinese and Japanese people who stood on the sandy beach with water up to the knees with life jackets everyone (non tourist season). Then we went in and swam nearly themselves out there in the coral reef, not so deep. Many coral was destroyed and we saw the most common korallfiskarna. After 45 minutes, it was bad weather and we got to go home, the way home, we get stuck in a coral reef in the middle of the Ocean during a pouring rain and a lot of lightning. Final English ️

  • Great secluded white sandy beach. Can only be accessed if the weather and tide permits.
  • The main beach looked very crowded. We went round nd the back and found a deserted small beach that was heaven.
  • Very nice island with beautiful seaview. Will definitely come again as the view here is really astounishing.
  • Visited in March. Weather was beautiful, almost too hot! The water is calm and clear, you can snorkel a bit further and see lots of different types of fish. We were told to stay away from the rocks because there are sea snakes!
  • The sand nd water colour was so clear and smooth There were hardly any bamboo trees left but beautiful landscape

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.
