  • Incredible rock formations throughout the entire island. Went on a Khlong tour around the island. All you'll need.  more »
  • You have to pass though a few rocky patches to get into the island on the route which leads to Maya Bay. It would be a lot of fun to spend time on this island and explore.  more »
  • Travelling alone (no agencies) from Nopparat Thara Pier. The first ferry early in the morning, the latter via 2:00 after the arrival of the first ((ate, pofotkalis, little time. It is necessary to go still with the overnight ferry Cost. 450 Baht per person one way. If the berth immediately go to directly go to the beautiful lagoon, finely there truth, but very nice)

  • Unique landscape and the turqoise water is crystal clear. Great place for snorkling. Colourful fish and great beach.
  • Ko Phi Phi Le or Ko Phi Phi Leh is an island of the Phi Phi archipelago, in the Strait of Malacca. It is in Krabi Province of Thailand and is part of Hat Noppharat Thara–Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park. Ko Phi Phi Le is the second largest island of the archipelago, the largest one being Ko Phi Phi Don. The island consists of a ring of steep limestone hills surrounding two shallow bays, Maya Bay and Loh Samah. During low tide, Maya Bay cannot be accessed directly from the sea via boat, due to shallow waters and coral. Therefore, boats must anchor at the deeper Loh Samah, requiring people to walk through a short section of rocks and jungle to reach Maya Bay itself. There is also one large shallow fjord like inlet called Pi Ley with a small coral reef at the entrance. The Maya Bay area harbors bioluminescent plankton Phi Phi Leh is an uninhabited island that lies 1.5km off the southernmost tip of Phi Phi Don. Stunning vertical cliffs capped with green foliage give way to small sandy beaches and tropical coral seas. Most visitors find their way around Phi Phi Leh on an organised Phi Phi boat tour. However you can rent a longtail boat for your own customized trip.
  • The beautiful beach from the movie „The Beach“ is best visited after 5pm by private boat after the crowd of the regular tourist boats left.
  • I would visit every day if possible great choice for swimming, very clean and awesome views
  • Scenic beauty. Beautiful beach, you can rent a boat and visit Maya beach.

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.
