While some of the beaches in Phi Phi Islands are well-known like the Maya Bay Beach, you do get more secluded shorelines to discover as well. Here’s more on such ‘secret’ coastal havens to enjoy a tranquil getaway minus the crowds!
Loh Bagao Bay
Nestled along Koh Phi Phi Don’s northeast coast, Loh Bagao Bay stands as a testament to untouched beauty. This bay boasts stunning white-powder sands framed by a picturesque coconut grove. For an exclusive escape, consider staying at a resort here like SAii Phi Phi Island Village, which grants direct access to a private stretch of shore. Luxuriate in the comforts of bungalows or pool villas, and look forward to sunbathing, water sports, diving excursions and spa bliss amidst the serenity of this secluded sanctuary.
Tucked away at Tonsai Bay, Viking Beach is a hidden gem between Long Beach and Tonsai Beach which can be reached from one of the Phi Phi Island villas. A short trail through the jungle leads to this small, serene spot, perfect for basking in the sun or snorkelling in clear waters. Escape the mainstream tourist spots and discover the untouched charm of Viking Beach, where the whispers of the jungle meet the lull of gentle waves.
Phak Nam Bay
Also referred to as Relax Bay, Phak Nam Bay graces the east coast of Koh Phi Phi Don and true to its name is a sublime place to unwind! It’s home to a 400-metre-long shoreline that lies off the beaten track; it can be reached by foot through a jungle trail, though a speedboat offers an easier option. Nestled between tropical greenery and the Andaman Sea, it personifies coastal tranquillity where you can unwind, soak up the sun and watch the world go slowly by.
Located on the west coast of Koh Phi Phi Don, Nui Beach is a small cove located south of Lana Bay. Easily accessible by longtail boat, it boasts idyllic shores, views of Camel Rock, and tall karsts offering rock-climbing opportunities too. The secluded nature of Nui Beach makes it an ideal place for snorkelling as you encounter the underwater wonders of this hidden paradise. Remember to stay till evening when you can take in a magical sunset as well.
