Phi Phi Island Information

What You Need to Know

Phi Phi consists of six small islands 46km south of Phuket. Fine sandy beaches give way to soaring limestone cliffs to form spectacular scenery. Add crystal clear water, a refreshing lack of roads, plus a laid-back lifestyle, and it's easy to see why Phi Phi is one of southern Thailand's most popular destinations.

The smaller, uninhabited island of Phi Phi Leh is a big tourist attraction. Surrounded by sheer limestone walls dotted with caves and passages the island's shallow blue-green lagoons and coral gardens are a snorkeler’s paradise. The island also has two magnificent beaches, Loh Samah and Maya Bay – used as a location for the Hollywood film The Beach.

Longtail boats make the many secluded beaches around Phi Phi Don accessible. Diving and snorkeling at Laem Thong and Hua Rah Ket is excellent. Many dive companies offer all-inclusive trips.

Thai Holidays & Festivals

Many Thais travel during festivals and holidays, so boats can be crowded and flights, especially from Bangkok, fully booked. Below are some of the more important festival dates to check with before making your travel plans.

  • January: New Year. Calms down around January 6th.
  • February: Chinese New Year. Date varies with the calendar - around the 2nd full moon. Ferries are busy.
  • April: Songkran Festival (Thai New Year). This is the water festival when many Thais return to their home. Don't expect to travel easily around this time as buses, flights and ferries are very busy. This is a major holiday in Thailand.
  • November: Loy Kratong. A beautiful festival where floating 'kratongs' with lighted candles are placed on water to take away bad luck. Not too many people traveling at this time of year.
  • December: Christmas. High season. Book all transportation early.
