Phi Phi Don Thailand

One of the most beautiful archipelagos in the world, the six islands of Thailand’s Ko Phi Phi are an undeniable picture of paradise. Beach-fronted jungles coat towering limestone cliffs, surrounded by crystal-clear waters and coral reefs. The two main islands of Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh are where most tourists head, with the surrounding islands of Bida Nok, Bida Nai, and Bamboo Island offering more pristine beaches and snorkelling spots.

Most beaches across the islands are ideal for swimming, snorkelling and diving amongst colourful coral and exotic fish. On Phi Phi Don, the powdery sands of Monkey Beach attract visitors keen to spot the native primates that give the beach its name. If you’ve seen ‘The Beach’ starring Leonardo DiCaprio, you’ll be familiar with the beautiful spot of Maya Bay on Phi Phi Leh that served as the film’s location. After being closed to the public for four years due to overtourism, the stunning sheltered bay is accessible once again by chartered boats from Phi Phi Don. Other highlights on Phi Phi Leh include Sama Bay, Pi Leh Bay and Viking Cave.

While the islands’ beaches and bays are the main draws for tourists, there are many other attractions which shouldn’t be missed. A hike up to the Phi Phi Viewpoint is well worth your time, offering a wonderful view over the island’s distinctive sandbar flanked by piercing turquoise waters on either side. Other activities include rock climbing, Thai cooking classes and cliff jumping.
