Phi Phi Island is the jewel in the Andaman Sea with beautiful white sand beaches and turquoise waters. It’s around 40-45km to both Phuket and Krabi with easy ferry access.
There are actually two Phi Phi Islands, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. Phi Phi Leh is part of a nature reserve and ‘Maya Bay’ made famous by the Leonardo Di Caprio movie ‘The Beach’. Day tours to Phi Phi Leh can be made from Phi Phi Don, Phuket or Krabi.
There are about 2500 people that live on Phi Phi Don. The main mode of transport here is by foot or bike.
The island is made up of 2 mountains with a sandy bay area in-between them, making two incredibly picturesque bays. There’s a maze of shops to walk through and a pleasant choice of restaurants, bars and dive shops.
