Staying at the Oasis Guesthouse.
I love this island so much. It’s paradise by day and you can party on the beach at night. The main beach is a beautiful bay with amazing scenery and this is what draws me to Phi Phi. Every island has a beach, but none are as beautiful as here.
We stayed on this island for 6 nights. Our room was quite basic but it’s all we needed when we planned to spend most of our time at the beach. We wanted to use this time to work on our traveller tans after 3 weeks walking around various cities.
There’s lots of things to do here such as diving, snorkelling, various boat trips and a walk to the viewpoint. The viewpoint is definitely worth doing. It’s a long climb to the top but it’s definitely worth it. You have to pay 20baht to get in but that gives you access to a little remembrance garden for the 2004 tsunami as well. We timed our walk so we could watch the sunset from the top and the views did not disappoint!
We also did a half day boat trip to Phi Phi Leh, the smaller sister island. This is where Maya Bay is, the beach used in the Leonardo DiCaprio film ‘The Beach’. It’s another beautiful island and we did some snorkelling and kayaking here as well. The trip cost 600 baht each and included tea, coffee, drinking water and a meal served at sunset. You can get the trip for cheaper but your meal won’t be cooked fresh so watch out for food poisoning!
Next island on the agenda is Koh Phangan for the full moon party. Get your uv paint ready!
