Koh Phi Phi Thailand is the perfect holiday destination for tourists of diverse taste and budget. Visitors to the island are never at a loss to find interesting things to do.
The island shot to fame with the Hollywood movie ‘The Beach’ starring Leonardo Di Caprio. Maya Bay, where the film was shot and the scores of picturesque beaches on the island offer endless possibilities for water sports enthusiasts and adventure seekers.
Koh Phi Phi Thailand is famous worldwide for its excellent diving locations. Hin Muang, the rock formation that juts out of ocean at low tide is a diver’s delight. Located barely 45 minutes speedboat ride from the island, Hin Muang has steep ridges measuring 30 meters to 60 meters. The variety of marine life, including whale sharks and manta rays, adds to the experience.
Snorkeling at Long Beach is popular among tourists. Here it is common to encounter the magnificent 2m long Black Tip Reef Sharks. There is no need to worry; these creatures are timid by nature. Another good snorkeling location is Hin Klang. However, the strong tides there require good swimming skills. The exquisite coral reefs situated offshore are worth the effort.
Maya Bay holds immense charm to movie buffs. It is also the venue of one of the best beach parties on the island. This is an organized tour of the island starting from Phi Phi Don. Also included in the tour are snorkeling and kayaking near the cliffs of Phi Phi Ley.
To spend a lazy day amidst nature, visit Monkey Beach. Located at a 10-minute boat or kayak ride from Loh Dalum, this virgin beach is a reminder of the lost world. Or, try the Sunset kayaking trip under the cliffs of Phi Phi Don.
While in Koh Phi Phi Thailand, there is never a dull moment.
