I. Long Beach

Long Beach is one of the longest stretches of sand on Koh Phi Phi. The beach offers a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the crystal-clear waters. Visitors can sunbathe, swim, and snorkel in the calm waters. The beach is relatively quiet and secluded, making it an excellent choice for those looking for a more peaceful beach experience. The best time to visit Long Beach is during the low season (May to October) when there are fewer tourists, and the weather is mild. There are a few restaurants and accommodations nearby, making it convenient for visitors who want to stay close to the beach.

II. Nui Beach

Nui Beach is a hidden gem on Koh Phi Phi. It is a secluded beach that offers a unique and tranquil atmosphere. Visitors can rent kayaks or paddle boards to explore the nearby islands or hike to the nearby viewpoint for a breathtaking view of the island. Nui Beach is also an excellent spot for snorkeling, as it has an abundance of marine life. The best time to visit Nui Beach is during the high season (November to April) when the weather is dry and sunny. There are a few restaurants and accommodations nearby, making it convenient for visitors who want to stay close to the beach.

III. Loh Dalum Beach

Loh Dalum Beach is the most vibrant and lively beach on Koh Phi Phi. It is the perfect place for visitors looking for a party atmosphere. The beach is lined with beachfront bars and restaurants that offer delicious food and drinks. Visitors can also enjoy water sports such as jet skiing, banana boating, and parasailing. The best time to visit Loh Dalum Beach is during the high season when there are plenty of tourists and the party atmosphere is in full swing. There are many accommodations nearby, making it convenient for visitors who want to stay close to the beach.

IV. Bamboo Island

Bamboo Island is a small but exquisite island located in the Phi Phi archipelago of Thailand, known for its stunning natural scenery and crystal-clear waters. The island is surrounded by reefs and is covered with lush green vegetation and bamboo, hence its name. The beach on the island is pristine and unspoiled, with soft white sand and crystal-clear waters perfect for swimming and snorkeling. 

Bamboo Island is a popular destination for day trips and is accessible by boat from nearby islands, including Koh Phi Phi Don. If you’re an adventurous one, rent a kayak and row your way there. We recommend leaving Phi Phi Don before 10 in the morning so you avoid the worst of the heat, and return while the sun is setting so you’re back in your hotel before dark. Spend the day relaxing on the beach, exploring the island’s hiking trails, and soaking up the island’s natural beauty. Make sure to pack plenty of snacks, water and sunscreen because there is only one small shop on the island.

Maya Bay

V. Maya Bay

Maya Bay is the most famous beach on Koh Phi Phi. It became a hugely popular tourist destination after being featured in the movie ‘The Beach’. The beach is surrounded by towering limestone karsts and crystalline waters. Because of the rampant tourism in Maya Bay, authorities have banned swimming in the ocean in order to protect marine life. There is also an entry fee of B400 to enter the national park which leads to the beach.

The best time to visit Maya Bay is during the low season when there are fewer tourists, and the weather is mild. There are no accommodations or restaurants on the beach, but visitors can stay on nearby islands or take a day trip to Maya Bay.
