Visit the spectacular islands of Koh Phi Phi in the Andaman Sea on a full-day tour starting from Koh Phi Phi Don. Meet the boat crew at Phi Phi Andaman Beach Resort near Ton Sai Pier and cruise by Thai traditional longtail boat from Phi Phi Don to the sister island Koh Phi Phi Leh.
Make a short stop at the famous Monkey Beach, where you can watch wild monkeys playing at the white sandy beach. The stunning 150m-long strip of white powdery sand fringed by emerald water is an excellent spot for snorkelling. The backside of the beach is a rather steep limestone cliff, covered with lush vegetation that offers monkeys a comfortable habitat, which is where it gets its name from.
Continue to Shark Point where you can spot blacktip reef sharks hunting smaller fish. Then cruise into the spectacular Phi Leh Lagoon which is surrounded by towering limestone cliffs rising out of the turquoise sea. It would be a crime to miss out on Maya Bay where you can relax on the very same beach as Leonardo DiCaprio was whilst filming for his hit movie ‘The Beach’. You can also walk to Loh Samah Bay which is located on the other side of Maya Bay.
This was a very long day on a very old and slow boat with a captain who barely spoke English. As such we did not spend very much time at the destinations as we were for the most part on the boat going from one location to the other and skipped some destinations as we were running behind on schedule. Therefore we didn't know where we were half of the time and had to look on our phone maps. We were disappointed when the Captain's skipper smoked on the boat, as we are non smokers. The captain also allowed people to smoke anyway instead of downwind. This is also not a tour for anyone who has any physical mobility issues as you must pull yourself onto the boat which can be challenging based on the water level.
