Mosquito Island, Ko Phi Phi Don

3.7
#6 of 10 in Parks in Ko Phi Phi Don
A little off the beaten path, Mosquito Island remains something of a hidden gem for snorkeling. The sixth and last island in the Phi Phi group, this remote spot offers exceptional collections of animal and marine life, including plenty of colorful schools of fish. Take a short boat ride from the town and snorkel right off the deck. The clear turquoise water contrasts against the rocks rising above its surface, making a perfect photo op. Because of the shallow waters, try to time your visit with high tide, when the coral is just 3 m (10 ft) below. Closer to the shore the coral reveals some wear and tear, but if you venture farther out you will be nicely surprised.

  • When I visited, the island was closed to boats, so it was only possible to do snorkeling. The long tail stopped in buoys and made a wonderful, snorkeling with many corals and marine life absurd!

  • We went ahead in a guided tour. Little note, the truth is that all the Islands we saw was that has less impact. It is pretty, you'll see it but when you've seen others...

  • Without doubt the best landscapes we've seen in Thailand. Despite having many tourists is not so massacred as other destinations. If you have a chance enjoy a day on this magnificent island. And the Portuguese caravels;)

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.
