Welcome to Koh Phi Phi

Koh Phi Phi

Koh Phi Phi is an extraordinary holiday destination. The twin Phi Phi islands, 30 miles (48km) east of Phuket, are world-renowned, particularly since the making of the Hollywood box office sensation, The Beach. Phi Phi Leh, the smaller of the two islands, was the setting for this movie, and now draws scores of day trippers from Phuket, just a 45-minute boat ride away. The island has no accommodation and is accessible only by boat, but offers sensational snorkelling and the Viking Cave with wall paintings.

Phi Phi Don, the larger island, has idyllic tropical beaches lining its shores and Ton Sai Bay, the main tourist centre on Phi Phi, may be a little overdeveloped for some visitors wanting a relaxed beach holiday. Although overrun by tourists, the islands retain their spectacular quiet beauty.
