Phi Phi Islands

The Phi Phi Islands rise majestically from the Andaman Sea, their limestone cliffs towering overhead, giving way to white-sand beaches and lush green jungle further inland. Of the two main islands, Phi Phi Leh (with its stunning Maya Bay, made famous by the 2000 film The Beach) remains uninhabited, while the increasingly busy Phi Phi Don lacks roads, giving it a laid-back feel, despite its popularity. Longtail boats putter between the islands, surrounded by turquoise waters and colorful marine life.


On Phi Phi Don, boats dock at Ao Ton Sai, with a narrow shop-lined path stretching east along the beach. The island is a relaxed, beachy affair by day, but when the sun goes down, bars and clubs offer loud music, cheap drinks, Thai boxing, karaoke and beach fire parties, keeping revelers entertained well into the early hours.


There are many ways to visit the Phi Phi Islands, with day trips available from both Phuket or Krabi via either speedboat or express ferry. These trips often include a visit to Phi Phi Don and allow some time for lazing on the beach and snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters of 
Phi Phi Leh's Maya Bay. Tours generally include lunch, hotel pickup and dropoff, plus plenty of time to soak up the idyllic island-life atmosphere.

Insider's Tip: Travelers looking for a more immersive experience can choose to visit the Phi Phi Islands as part of a three-night sailing cruise, or on a deluxe six-island tour that also takes in Koh Khai, Koh Yao, Mosquito Island and Bamboo Island.

Practical Info

Ferries can be taken to Koh Phi Phi Don's port from Ko Lanta, Krabi and Phuket.
