The natural beauty of this area is stunning. The Phi Phi Islands have white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and verdant palm groves that characterize postcards from tropical island paradises. There are six islands that make up the Koh Phi Phi archipelago. Koh Phi Phi Don is the sole inhabited island in the chain. Even though it’s the largest of the six islands, this one is still less than 10 square kilometers in size.
Koh Phi Phi Don is the only island where tourists can stay, and it has a wide variety of lodging options, dining options, nightlife venues, and sightseeing opportunities. One can get around on foot, and other islands are accessible by kayak, long-tail boat, or speed boat to embark on a Phi Phi Islands adventure.
10/10 Go For A Walk Up To The Koh Phi Phi Viewpoint
The island of Koh Phi Phi Don is in the shape of a dumbbell, and its curves are best appreciated from above from the Koh Phi Phi Viewpoint. The island’s main settlements are clustered along its equator, with mountains and palm oases occupying the outside regions (or “weights” if one is sticking with the dumbbell analogy). The ascent to the lookout may be made in 20-40 minutes, depending on one’s pace, and is one of many instagrammable things to do in Koh Phi Phi. Tonsai Bay’s deep blue seas and Loh Dalam Bay’s bright teal waters are separated by Tonsai Village, making for a breathtaking panorama when viewed from above.
9/10 Go Scuba Diving
Underwater marine life on Koh Phi Phi is unique, colorful, and spectacular to observe, adding to the island’s already stunning natural splendor. Due to the richness of the undersea habitats, scuba diving is a popular activity and a great way to experience the Phi Phi Islands. The months of February through April are considered to be the ideal time to go scuba diving on Koh Phi Phi Island. Because this is the dry season, the temperature is high, there is very little chance of rain, and the water is exceptionally transparent.
8/10 Come See Some Of The World’s Most Stunning Beaches
Phi Phi Islands are famous because of the beaches. Every one of them seems like a tropical paradise, only better. Loh Dalum Beach, one of the most beautiful on Koh Phi Phi Don, is conveniently situated in the island’s geographic center. At low tide, visitors to Loh Dalum Beach may stroll out deep into the sand, while at high tide, they can float in the warm, shallow blue water. This beach, which is somewhat far from civilization, is ideal for those seeking tranquility.
7/10 Enjoy The Sunset While Lying On The Sand
Every trip to the tropics is incomplete without witnessing a breathtaking sunset over the water from an island. Visitors wrap themselves in a blanket or a towel, pack some food and beverages, and get out on the beach to watch the sunset. Long Beach, Nui Bay Beach, and Laem Tong Beach are some of the greatest beaches on Koh Phi Phi Don to watch the sun go down. Alternatively, one might schedule a boat excursion that involves watching the sunset while they sip a cocktail on the water’s edge at a beachside bar.
6/10 Chill Out At Loh Moo Dee Bay
Because Loh Moo Dee Bay is widely regarded as one of Phi Phi Island’s most stunning beaches, visiting this location is unquestionably one of the top things to do while vacationing on the island. This stretch of beach is 500 meters long, and it’s rarely visited by other beachgoers, so visitors may enjoy a peaceful day in peace. Clear, shallow water makes this a terrific area to bring youngsters, and the bay itself is home to some excellent snorkeling opportunities.
5/10 Explore The Bida Archipelago
Phi Phi’s southernmost islands, Koh Bida Nok and Koh Bida Nai, are part of a group of islands called the Bida islands. They are basically limestone rock formations that protrude out into the water, and because there are no beaches here, one cannot really land here. Divers will have a fantastic time exploring the underwater world off the coast of the Bida Islands. To take in the varied topography of the area while gliding through the islands in a canoe or a boat is another enjoyable activity.
4/10 Check Out Some Muay Thai Boxing
Even on such a little island as Koh Phi Phi Don, the Thai boxing style known as Muay Thai can be seen everywhere tourists go in Thailand. Reggae Bar is a great place to have fun thanks to its many bars, live music and dancing, billiards, and boxing ring. Every night, the pub hosts Muay Thai boxing contests, and after the pros have sparred, the crowd is encouraged to give it a go. People who are interested in giving boxing a shot need to make sure they’re sober before entering the ring for their own protection.
3/10 Visit Monkey Bay And See The Monkeys!
Not to be mistaken with Monkey Beach, the popular Monkey Bay can be found on the southwestern shore of Phi Phi Don Island. An excellent place to go swimming or snorkeling due to its beautiful seas and tall limestone cliffs. The bay’s gorgeous beauty is a bonus, but the hundreds of monkeys that inhabit the cliffs are the real draw. One won’t have to scour the horizon to find them having a blast up in the trees or scaling the rocks.
2/10 Pay A Visit To Maya Bay
Maya Bay, with its picture-perfect white sands, is largely responsible for the influx of visitors to the Koh Phi Phi islands. It is presently considered to be among the most well-known beaches in the entire globe. Limestone cliffs rise abruptly on both sides of the beach. The sand is as white as snow, and the sea is a crystal-pure blue full of young sharks. There isn’t a single thing that isn’t ideal about it. Sure enough, it is pure heaven!
1/10 Go See A Beach Fire Show
Koh Phi Phi’s party scene is already off the charts, but add nightly fire performances, and it’s hard to believe what one will see. If tourists happen to be out partying late at night, they should not miss one of the amazing fire shows put on by trained locals on the beach, as it is one of many reasons to visit Koh Phi Phi. Most Phi Phi Island fire performances begin around nightfall, should one be wondering what to do while there. Sunflower Beach Bar & Restaurant, Carlito’s Beach Bar, and Slinky Beach Bar are known for their spectacular fire performances on the island.
