  • A beautiful small Bay where monkeys play and to maintain each other. We were only two other people there, we were on our way back from the Maya Bay, and it was only 8:30 in the morning. Is highly recommended to make this tour as early as possible. Unfortunately, it is very much plastic garbage on the beach. We have collected a lot.

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.
