It welcomes a great number of tourists with many services on the island. The smaller island, Phi Phi Leh is desolate. However, it is just as beautiful with an array of hidden bays and beaches to explore. This is where you will find the well known Maya Bay.

Maya Bay maybe one of the most famous hot spots in the Phi Phi Island group. Making its debut on the big screen in the movie “The Beach”. Following the release of the movie, many A-listers have also visited the stunning bay, putting it on the world map.

How to visit Phi Phi Island

Phi Phi Island is located around 48kms away from the main Phuket Island. It is part of the Krabi province. The best way to get there is by speed boat, roughly an hour’s boat ride from the Royal Phuket Marina. Or, you can take a ferry to Phi Phi Island which takes up to 90 minutes.

Although you are able to get a taxi to the pier and get a speed boat on your own. However, booking a tour is the best way to ensure you see all the best spots. As well as for your own safety. The licensed tour operators are able to notify you of any bad weather conditions in advance. Your safety is their top priority as the water conditions vary throughout the year.

To avoid missing out due to bad weather conditions, we suggest visiting Phi Phi Island from November to April. During this time the weather is perfect for water sports. The other 6 months from May to October are monsoon season. And, the water conditions can be rough and change quickly throughout the day.
