Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Phi Phi's infamous party action is centred around Ton Sai -- both Ton Sai beach and the same-named village -- and Ao Lo Dalam also has its share of bars. The Lo Dalam headland affords good views and puts you within walking distance of the party scene. Long Beach has gone upscale and now offers all of your creature comforts at some larger resorts, while the smaller Pak Nam Beach and Ao Toh Ko come with similarly priced accommodation. Luxury travellers will be best served at Laem Thong or Ao Lo Bakao. Rantee Beach is a great choice for seclusion seekers.
Ton Sai Beach
This is the arrival point for Ko Phi Phi. The pier is at the centre, with most resorts out to the east. Behind the beach is Ton Sai village.
