Beaches & Islands

Phi Phi Islands

Hadnopparattara - Koh Phi Phi National Park is almost entirely dominated by the two Islands collectively known as ‘Koh Phi Phi’ - Koh Phi Phi Don (the larger of the two islands) and Koh Phi Phi Leh. Situated about 50 kilometers southeast of Phuket the islands are regarded by many as being the most attractive in the kingdom, if not the world.

The islands feature beaches and clear water that have had their natural beauty protected by National Park status. Once only a destination of day trippers, the islands are now some of the most popular destinations along Thailand’s Andaman coast, and during the tourism high season of December to March they can become extremely crowded. Because of its clear waters the area has become a destination of choice for diving and snorkeling enthusiasts keen to experience the area’s splendid corals and marine lives.

Details: Although officially part of a National Park, there is no admission charge to either island.
