Other Beaches & Islands

Bamboo Island

Bamboo Island (Koh Phai in Thai) is one of the six islands belonging to the Phi Phi archipelago in the southern Thai province of Krabi. Lying approximately five kilometres northeast off Koh Phi Phi Don, Bamboo Island is a tropical dream come true; measuring 600m wide by 700m long, the island is entirely surrounded by a strip of white sand, and its central part is covered with lush vegetation including Bamboo trees that gave its name to the island in its central part.

The perfect spot for a day trip, Bamboo Island hosts great snorkelling opportunities with the presence of superb coral reefs lying at short distance off its shore, mostly on its western side. A small bar serves drinks and snacks. Day and overnight trips (sleeping in tents) are available from Koh Phi Phi Don, or you could visit the island on a Phi Phi day trip by speedboat from Phuket.

Loh Bagao Bay

A beautiful tranquil bay half way up the east coast of Phi Phi Don, one of Phi Phi's larger beaches at 800m long, the best coral is at the south end. The bay is occupied by Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort.

Monkey Bay

Located just outside Loh Dalum Bay to the west, Monkey Bay is a deserted tranquil beach with good coral. Some daytrips stop here to see the monkeys, watch out - they can be very cheeky.

Monkey Beach

Monkey Beach is located on the west side of Tonsai Bay about 700m from the beach. At very high tide there's not much beach but at other times there's plenty of sand. The monkeys here eat offered fruit.

Moo Dee Bay and other east coast beaches

Koh Phi Phi Don eastern coast was, until recently, rather undeveloped – apart from its northern part which hosts world-class resorts such as Holiday Inn Phi Phi at Laem Thong and Outrigger Phi Phi at Loh Ba Kao. It is a fact that the rather small beaches along Phi Phi east coast are not exactly suitable for heavy construction as there is no road that leads to them and the coastline is mostly made of an almost vertical cliff falling straight into the sea.

Anyway, some entrepreneurs went over the technical difficulties, and Moo Dee Bay, as well as a few others (Phak Nam Bay and Rantee Bay), have seen the establishment of restaurants and small bungalow resorts since 2010. They can be reached by long-tail boat from Tonsai Village in about 30 minutes, and offer excellent opportunities for snorkelling and relaxing in the wild. The fittest visitors can also try to get there by trekking through the jungle with a guide.

Pi Leh Bay

Pi Leh is a long thin bay with 100m high cliffs on all sides, at the entrance there's a shelf, the top of which is too shallow for anything other than speedboat or longtail, this stops it from getting too busy.
