Things to see and do

  • Boat trip to Phi Phi Leh
    4.5 stars

    Phi Phi Leh is the southern of the two main islands and has an even more spectacular sheer cliff scenery. It's a rugged, jagged rock a 30-minute boat ride to the south of Ko Phi Phi Don. It also has an especially pretty beach, Maya Bay. It was on Maya Bay that scenes from The Beach were ... read more

    4 stars

    The most popular beach to paddle to is the lovely Monkey Beach which lies about a 45-minute splash away to the northwest of Lo Dalam. You can't actually see the beach from Lo Dalam, but it is beautiful and totally undeveloped. Oh, and it's called Monkey Beach for a reason: the trees are ... read more

  • Rock Climbing on Ko Phi Phi
    4 stars

    Courses range from half-day introductions to three-day advanced ones. Experienced climbers with their own equipment can just stop in and ask where the best routes are. One note of caution: the equipment here denigrates quickly due to the salty air and it isn't totally unheard of for climbing ... read more
