Beaches of Phi Phi Leh, Krabi, Thailand

Phi Phi Leh is an uninhabited island in the Andaman Sea, located in the Krabi province of Thailand. This stunning destination is known for its dramatic limestone cliffs, crystal clear waters, and lush vegetation, making it a popular spot for tourists. The Phi Phi islands are blessed with a tropical climate, characterized by warm temperatures throughout the year and distinct wet and dry seasons. The best time to visit for a beach holiday is during the dry season, which runs from November to April when rainfall is minimal and sunshine is abundant.

Maya Bay, Thailand

Maya Bay
Maya Bay

Maya Bay is perhaps the most famous beach on Phi Phi Leh, thanks to its starring role in the 2000 film "The Beach." This idyllic cove is surrounded by towering limestone cliffs and boasts powdery white sand beaches that gently slope into crystal clear waters. Snorkeling opportunities are abundant here, with vibrant coral reefs teeming with marine life just offshore.

While Maya Bay has been closed to tourists since 2018 to allow for environmental rehabilitation, it's still worth admiring from a distance on a boat tour around the island. The best time to visit Maya Bay for a beach holiday is between November and April when the weather conditions are favorable.

More information and weather

Aside from Maya Bay, there are several other beaches and attractions on Phi Phi Leh worth exploring during your visit:

Pileh Lagoon

Pileh Lagoon is a breathtaking inlet nestled between towering limestone cliffs on the eastern side of Phi Phi Leh. This secluded lagoon features calm turquoise waters perfect for swimming or snorkeling. As there's no proper beach here - only rocky ledges - it's best appreciated from a boat or kayak as you glide through its serene waters.

Viking Cave

Viking Cave is a fascinating site on the northeastern side of Phi Phi Leh, famous for its ancient cave paintings thought to depict Viking longships. The cave is also home to a thriving population of swiftlets, whose nests are harvested to produce bird's nest soup - a Chinese delicacy. While visitors are not allowed inside the cave, it's worth passing by on a boat tour to admire its intriguing history and striking rock formations.

Loh Samah Bay

Loh Samah Bay is another picturesque spot on Phi Phi Leh, located just south of Maya Bay. This small cove features crystal clear waters and vibrant coral reefs, making it an excellent spot for snorkeling and diving. There's no proper beach here either, but the bay can be easily accessed by boat or kayak for an unforgettable underwater experience.

When planning your beach holiday in Phi Phi Leh, remember that the island is part of a marine national park and certain areas may be off-limits to tourists at times. However, with its stunning natural beauty and fantastic snorkeling opportunities, this slice of paradise in Krabi province remains a must-visit destination for any beach lover!
