Koh Phi Phi Don beaches
You will first touchdown on the Koh Phi Phi Phi Don island at Tonsai Bay beach from a private boat or a ferry. Despite being one of the most beautiful beaches on Koh Phi Phi Don, it’s not the best beach for water activities due to many boats. However, the eastern part of the Tonsai Bay beach may suit many Instagrammers. Tonsai Bay beach is your entrance to Koh Phi Phi Don town center, which is an experience of its own!
Loh Dalum Bay is a flip-side of Tonsai Bay, creating a double beach effect – a unique peculiarity of the bustling heart of Phi Phi. Being a twin sister of Tonsai Bay, Loh Dalum is a gorgeous, yet quiet beach of Koh Phi Phi Don. It goes for about 1 kilometer long, curved in style, and surrounded by mountains on both sides. With plenty of water activities and accommodations, Loh Dalum Bay is one of the most popular beaches for tourists on Koh Phi Phi Don.
Nui Beach is a hidden beach on Koh Phi Phi Don’s north-west that is only accessible by boat, kayaking, or hiking through the jungle. Nui Beach is one of the best snorkeling beaches in Koh Phi Don, and how gorgeous it is! This stretch of powder-soft white sand is framed by tall karsts that promise excellent rock climbing. Diving and snorkeling at Nui Beach are world-class, offering exciting swim-throughs with occasional spotting of turtles and tiny seahorses.
Koh Phi Phi Leh beaches
Within a short boat ride from a busy hub of the Koh Phi Phi Don, another dimension of awesome awaits around Koh Phi Phi Leh.

Witness a now-closed Maya Bay from your private boat. What a fabulous, white sand beach, sheltered by 100-meter high cliffs on three sides! It is one of the world-famous beaches of the Phi Phi Islands. Not far, an equally fantastic experience awaits at the Pileh Lagoon. This natural pool promises one of the best snorkeling in Koh Phi Phi Leh, while few people know that there is also a beach hidden deep inside the lagoon.
Finally, one of the most popular and busiest beaches (with boat trips) near Koh Phi Phi Don is at Bamboo Island. The island looks like a strip of powder-white sand envelops it.
