Phi Phi Information
Phi Phi Don - This island is the largest of the 6 Phi Phi islands and consists of two main sections. It is on Ton Sai where the original inhabitants settled and is now the home of the main accommodation area. Nowadays though, with development, the beaches have had to pay a cost and so they’re not quite as spectacular as they were in the days of yesteryear. The landscape however, has not been ruined.
Phi Phi Leh - The second largest of the Phi Phi Islands is pretty, and pristine, but authorities in charge do not allow visitors to stay overnight, with the exception of limited camping with one company. Besides the beach, other attractions include the Phaya Naak Cave with its prehistoric paintings and edible-nest swiftlets.
Ton Sai Bay - Phi Phi Don Ao Ton Sai is where most of the tourist activity is centered. The area contains restaurants, bars, hotels, and guesthouses.
Yao Beach - Phi Phi Don Yao Beach, just south of Ton Sai, offers visitors some scenic views and coral reefs for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Laem Tong, Phi Phi Don Laem Thong is located at the very north of the island.
