About Koh Phi Phi
Koh Phi Phi consists of 6 islands, the largest of which and the only inhabited island is Koh Phi Phi Don. Most of the accommodation in Koh Phi Phi Don is crammed into the small flat area of land near the island’s main ferry pier, Ao Tonsai Pier. This small piece of flat land is sandwiched between two bays, Tonsai and Loh Dalum. Tonsai Bay is used as harbour leaving no space for sunbathing or swimming. Lao Dalum Bay, which is a very short distance from Tonsai Bay, however, is a white sand beach with fewer boats which is a popular for swimming and sunbathing.
The area around Tonsai Bay is very much a ‘party zone’ which has a lot of bars and restaurants all packed closely together. Some people really like this part of Koh Phi Phi, others hate it. You won’t have a peaceful stay on Koh Phi Phi but some people have a great time there nonetheless. Either way, the scenery is stunning and everyone who comes to Thailand should visit just to see the island’s steep cliff and clear waters.
