The islands of Ko Phi Phi are six in total and these vary in size and development. The largest and most visited island in the archipelago is Ko Phi Phi Don. This spectacular cay is somewhat commercialised, though still boasts an incredibly beautiful landscape. The six beaches of Ko Phi Phi feature powdery-white sand, and the intriguing underwater treasures fringing Ko Phi Phi’s islands are a must-see.
Across the handful of islands at Ko Phi Phi, there are many things to see and do. Tourists can easily holiday on Phi Phi Islands for an entire week and remain entertained.
There are so many fantastic beaches of Ko Phi Phi. Phi Phi Don’s Monkey Beach is aptly named due to the heavy population of monkeys here. Yao and Lanti beaches are crowded during the high season, although Hin Khao Beach offers the perfect solitude during most times of the year.
Diving and snorkelling are two of the most sought-after activities on Phi Phi Islands. The likes of Ko Bida Noi and Ko Bida Nai are small islands that are teeming with shark species, eels, turtles and a long list of fish species. Dive sites visitors should be looking out for include Hin Dot near Phi Phi Don and the night time dive area around Loh Samah Bay.
Rock climbing and cliff jumping are two of the more thrilling items on the Ko Phi Phi tourism menu. The islands boast several different limestone cliffs, which not only give visitors a challenging yet beautiful rock climbing experience, but also a chance to dive safely into the deep water below.
