What can you expect
Enjoy a full-day of relaxation on this speed boat trip to Phi Phi Islands, lapped by turquoise waters and shaded by towering limestone rocks. Scene of the blockbuster movie “The Beach”, Phi Phi is a paradise destination just 48 km from the mainland in Krabi Thailand.
You will be collected from your hotel in Ao Nang, Krabi Town, Ao Nam Mao, Klong Muang or Tubkaek Beach in the morning, the exact pickup time will be indicated at time of confirmation. Check in with the Sea Eagle crew at Nopparat Thara Pier and cruise over to Koh Phi Phi Leh on a comfortable speed boat with a limited number of 45 seats. On the way we will pick up other guests staying at Railay Beach.
The first stop will be on the tiny and flat island named Koh Pai, which is also known as Bamboo Island. It is covered by lush vegetation and entirely surrounded by a strip of white sand and a reef that spreads up to 500 m from the shore. The uninhabited paradise location 5 km off the northern tip of Koh Phi Phi Don provides its masked and finned visitors with the feeling of swimming in an aquarium.
Cruise further to Koh Phi Phi Leh slowly past Viking Cave to see where the Phi Phi birds nest soup are harvested. At Loh Samah Bay, you can climb from a floating pier over the rocks to an elevated wooden trail which leads to the beach at Maya Bay. Here you can touch the white sand and dangle your feet into the turquoise water. You will have approximately one hour to enjoy on one of the most stunning locations in Thailand, and if you lucky you can witness black tip reef sharks swimming in the shallows.
Notable rules at Maya Bay include no swimming, no single-use plastics, using reef-safe sunscreen and no use of drones without permission. Please remember that the Mu Koh Phi Phi Marine Park will be closed every year for 2 months during low season.
Take spectacular photos of the 600 m long Phileh Lagoon framed by 100 m tall limestone cliffs and snorkel on the east side of Phi Phi Leh on coral reefs with crystal-clear waters. Next stop is Monkey Beach, which is located on the southwestern side of Tonsai Bay. It is a simply stunning 150 m long strip of white powdery sand fringed by emerald water backed by lush vegetation that offers monkeys a comfortable habitat. During low tide you can see a colony of monkeys having their breakfast down on the beach.
The last stop will be on Phi Phi Don, the larger of the 2 sister islands. A rich Thai buffet lunch is served in the restaurant of Phi Phi Cliff Beach Resort. Then it's time to explore the island path of Ton Sai which offers average tourist facilities along the beautiful curved bays of Ton Sai and Loh Dalum Bay.
Head back to the mainland with a short stopover to drop-off customers at Railay Beach, before returning to your hotel.
