Ko Phi Phi

Where to stay: Ko Phi Phi

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.

Introduction


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.

Ton Sai village

Quite simply central Ton Sai village parties late. If you’re on a budget, like a party, late night food, don’t mind touts and can handle things with a good grace then this is for you.

Ao Lo Dalam

This white-sand beach at the western edge of the busy isthmus opposite Tonsai Bay is home to a string of late-night party bars and a growing number of bungalow resorts. Kayaking the shallow bay and lazing on the sands are the most popular activities by day. Don’t forget your earplugs if you plan to stay here.

Lo Dalam headland

The jungly headland at the northern end of Ao Lo Dalam is home to a flurry of building activity, with several new bungalow resorts mostly in the budget to flashpacker range popping up. Some offer terrific views across the bay.

Long Beach

This very pretty strip of sand used to be Phi Phi’s backpacker beach, but they’ve been priced back to the village now and it’s flashpacker and up here now. Resort development now stretches along its entire length.

Ao Toh Ko

This blip of a beach sits just to the south of Rantee Bay or a 30-minute scrabble over the rocks to the north of Lo Moo Dee. It’s a very pretty beach and there is good snorkelling here.

Rantee Beach

This pretty 300-metre strip of white sand along Phi Phi’s east coast is reached only by boat or via a rugged path through the jungle from the viewpoint, giving it a secluded feel. It’s now home to three resorts.

Pak Nam Beach

Pak Nam is set between Rantee and Lo Bakao and is home to just two places to stay. If you don’t mind the isolated location, and it fits your budget, look no further.

Ao Lo Bakao

Home to one of Ko Phi Phi’s most exclusive resorts, Lo Bakao is a very pretty beach with a shallow drop, making it good for kids.

Laem Thong

Found on the far northeastern corner of Phi Phi, Laem Thong is a bit of a luxury haven, but even if you can’t afford to stay here this one-kilometre stretch of sand makes for a pleasant day trip.
