Phi Phi Island Beaches0
Loh Lana (Lana Bay, also spelled Loh Lannah or Loh Lanna) is a splendid cove located on the the northwest coast of Koh Phi Phi Don, the main island of the Phi Phi group. Featuring a 500-metre long beach, it is totally undeveloped apart from a hotel under construction which seems to have been abandoned since 2014. The shallow waters of this square-shaped bay offer great snorkelling opportunities at both ends of the strand.
You can easily reach the more well-known beach of Loh Bagao on foot from Loh Lana. A cement path links the two beaches, literally crossing the island at this point is only 900-metres in length. The lack of infrastructure such as bars and restaurants in Loh Lana is therefore not a problem as Loh Bagao Village hosts a good choice of lunching options. The area between Lana and Bagao hosts a great field for exploration: just south of Lana Bay, you can get to Nui Beach, a secret cove offering outstanding snorkelling, which faces one of Phi Phi’s natural landmarks: Camel Rock. A viewpoint is also easily accessible a few hundred metres northeast of Lana Bay. This area also features a pristine mangrove forest.Read More
Different options are available to get to Loh Lana. From Loh Dalum (the north side of Tonsai Village) you can hire a long-tail boat (the round-trip will cost you about 1,500 baht for the whole boat) and reach Lana Bay in about 20 minutes or, if you are not afraid by a physical challenge, you can get there on foot through a trail that starts at Phi Phi Viewpoint. This second option will take you about two hours yet, be careful to not get lost in the jungle (hiring a guide is certainly less risky). Do not forget to bring along water and snacks for this soft-adventurous hiking journey. You could find a long-tail boat to get back to Tonsai Village on Loh Bagao Beach as it certainly is not a good idea to wander in the jungle after dark…
