About Koh Lipe


Often described as the Maldives of Thailand, the tiny island of Koh Lipe has the clearest waters of any of the islands in Thailand, teeming with sea life all around the coast line.

Beaches in Koh Lipe

Koh Lipe has several good beaches, the best of which is the 1.2 km long Sunrise Beach on the east coast of the island. This said, because the island is so small it doesn’t really matter where you stay because you walk pretty much everywhere in about 20 minutes.

Pattaya Beach, on the other side of the island is where the speedboats and ferries arrive and depart and is a less pleasant place to swim and sunbathe although it is a good place to go to eat and drink in the evening.

Walking Street

The nightlife, and the majority of the shops and restaurants, is concentrated around Walking Street, which is the main street on the island running northward from Pattaya Beach. Walking Street is not a party zone like Tonsai Village in Koh Phi Phi, it caters more for an older family oriented audience, with all you can eat seafood BBQ restaurants and upmarket bars. It’s not cheap in Koh Lipe by Thai standards but it is excellent value for money compared to the Maldives.
