Phi Phi Island

Phi Phi Island

The famous islands of Thailand

The newly opened Sea Bees Dive Centre on Koh Phi Phi is at the Holiday Inn Resort, located on the Northern part of the island on Laem Tong Beach. This beautiful white-sand beach is considered to be the most beautiful beach on Koh Phi Phi Island.

It is part of the Had Noppharat Thara – Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park where you will find an oasis of tranquillity, with short links to Phuket and Krabi.


On Laem Tong Beach, you can experience the traditional life of Koh Phi Phi where the locals still call themselves “Chao Lay”, or “Sea Gypsies”.


Tonsai Bay
This well-known and bustling part of the island is always worth a visit. Located in the south of Koh Phi Phi, it can be reached with a longtail boat in 30 minutes, which be rented from Hotel Reception.


For those who’d prefer to a jungle hike, Tonsai Bay can be reached in an hour-and-a-half. The viewpoint offers amazing views over both beaches. Trips to Maya Bay (made famous in the film “The Beach”), can also be organised from the hotel.

I have now been enlightened. “Phi Phi” developed in a roundabout way from the Malay language and means “fiery trees”. This in turn comes from the lush green mangroves (Avicennia Marina) that inhabit the islands and which are used for firewood …
