Koh Phi Phi beach

The Phi Phi islands are some of the loveliest in south east Asia. Just a 45-minute jaunt from Phuket, these picture postcard islands offer the ultimate tropical getaway. Classic beaches, stunning rock formations and vivid turquoise waters teeming with tropical marine life - a perfect paradise.

Phi Phi Don Island covers 28 square kilometres and consists of two parallel running wooded hills, that are connected by a narrow sandy isthmus covered by coconut groves and several hotel buildings and rimmed with beaches on either side. The southern Tonsai Beach lies deep in a bay with limestone cliffs on one side and wooded hills on the other side, while Lohdalum Bay has shallow water that makes swimming possible only during high tide.

Phi Phi Leh Island, with only 7 square kilometres the smaller one is more spectacular with their cliffs plunging hundred of metres into the sea. Main attraction for the visitor is the popular Viking Cave with its ancient rock paintings of boats found inside, some of which vaguely resemble Viking longboats. Maya Bay is recommended for snorkellers with colourful fish used to be fed by hand. This bay was the location for the shooting of the film "The Beach" and is now visited more than ever.
