Phi Phi Island Holidays
Holidays to Phi Phi Island
Phi Phi Island is a hugely popular holiday destination in the Adaman Sea off the west coast of Thailand. It is made up of two islands Phi Phi Leh and Phi Phi Don. Phi Phi Don is the larger of the two and neighbouring Phi Phi Leh is uninhabited.
Phi Phi Don's main area is Ton Sai, once a small fishing village it is now a busy bay with lots to offer visitors.
Phi Phi Island holidays are said to be some of the most picturesque in Southeast Asia and with their soft white sand, rocky enclaves and clear waters it's easy to understand why.
The best time to visit Phi Phi Island
Holidays to Phi Phi Island experience a tropical climate with year-round warm weather.
The main season for tourists is November to April with December and January being extremely busy months. During these months you'll get days of endless sunshine interspersed with monsoon rains that provide a welcome relief from the heat.
February to April is recommended as the best time to visit as the area is quieter, accommodation is cheaper and the weather is ideal.
What are the beaches like in Phi Phi Island?
You'll find numerous beaches along the coastline of Phi Phi Don including Laem Tong Beach, Loh Dalum Bay and Loh Bagao Bay. Laem Tong Beach, along the island's northeast shore, is considered one of the best on the island thanks to its soft sand and clear waters that are perfect for diving and snorkelling. The enclosed shallow waters of Loh Dalum Bay are so calm they have no waves and thanks to the heat of the sun they're warm enough to provide a paradise bathing experience.
Sightseeing in Phi Phi Island
Many visitors on a holiday to Phi Phi Island head straight to Maya Beach on Phi Phi Leh thanks to its use in the filming of the 90s film 'The Beach'. The beautiful bay is backed by towering cliffs and offers panoramic views of the Andaman Sea.
The Phi Phi Viewpoint, 186m above sea level is easily reachable on foot and you'll be rewarded with fantastic views across Ton Sai and Loh Dalum bays and out towards Phi Phi Leh.
