The first snorkel stop will be in Pileh Lagoon which is famous for its tree-speckled limestone karsts. Then continue to Maya Bay, a stunningly beautiful bay that's sheltered by 100-metre high cliffs on three sides. Inside the bay there are several beaches, most are small and some only exist at low tide. The main one is around 200 metres long with silky soft white sand, underwater colorful coral and exotic fish in exceptionally clear water; the whole bay is one big reef. Maya Bay has become the main tourist attraction of Phi Phi since ‘The Beach’ was filmed here in 1999.
Next stop is at Monkey Beach, which is one of the top attractions of Phi Phi Don. It is isolated from the main village, where the ferries arrive and most of the accommodation is, by a rocky and forested headland and sits under the largest mountain on the island.
Head over to Bamboo Island where you will enjoy a Thai buffet lunch directly at the beach. In the afternoon you can explore the tiny island which is nothing like its big sisters. Here, there lies no high rocky peak, only a small beach of white sand that emerges from the turquoise waters.
Before heading back to Koh Lanta, you will have time to relax at Laem Tong Bay. This little piece of paradise is located on the northeastern side of Koh Phi Phi Don and is an ideal spot for relaxing with almost total seclusion. The atmosphere is quite the opposite of buzzing Tonsai village, as the soothing sound of the waves lapping up to the almost one-kilometre-long beach is only perturbed by the noise of longtail and speed boats making the transfers to Tonsai village or Bamboo Island.
During high season (November - April) and on National Thai Holidays, we advise that you book your trip as early as possible as seats sell out fast.
Due to bad weather or sea conditions the tour may be postponed or cancelled with a full refund.
You can cancel your booking up to 4 days prior to your scheduled departure date and receive a refund for cost of the tour (if no other custom cancellation policy is stated under 'Important to Know'). Read our Terms & Conditions.
- Bring a swimwear, sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses, flip flops and camera.
- Speed boats carry passengers as close to the beach as they can so passengers can hop off and on easily.
- Wear shorts rather than pants as the water level may be above the knees when hopping off/on the boat.
- This trip is not recommended for pregnant women or people with back or neck problems
- Maya Bay cannot be visited during low season from June until October issued by the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation. The itinerary of the tour will slightly change as the boat will not be able to enter Maya Bay, but instead you will visit other places at Phi Phi Leh.
