Phi Phi Island: Monkey Beach, Pileh Lagoon & Maya Bay Tour

1. Phi Phi Island: Monkey Beach, Pileh Lagoon & Maya Bay Tour

The first stop is Monkey Beach, named after the primates that inhabit it. Watch the curious creatures wander about, take in the fantastic views of the island, or swim in the turquoise waters before heading to the next stop. Viking Cave was named after the paintings found on its walls, one of which was a Scandinavian-looking boat, hence the cave’s name. Besides the impressive sketches, another thing the site is famous for are the birds’ nests that locals collect for the popular Chinese dish, bird’s nest soup. You’ll head to Pileh Lagoon next, where you can jump into the emerald waters and snorkel with the fish. You can also relax on the boat and take in the gorgeous scenery. You won’t get this unique backdrop of limestone cliffs and crystal clear waters anywhere else. The next stop is another popular snorkeling spot, Loh Samah Bay. Even if you’re not an experienced swimmer, you can wade around in the shallow waters of the bay and catch glimpses of the colorful marine life. After splashing around, you’ll head to Maya Bay, which famously appeared in the 1999 movie The Beach. Admire the majestic views of the steep cliffs encircling the beach, before heading back to the pier.

We had a fun time at the cruise. We were looking forward to visiting with the monkeys (per their picture) but were only allowed to see from the boat as the monkeys bite. We did do some snorkeling a bit further away from there. We got to swim in the lagoon and do some paddle boating. We had to cut it short due to the rain. Make sure to take bug spray as we got stung pretty bad at Maya Bay. Maya Bay is where you get off the boat, walk through a trial to get to the beach. Make sure you let them know ahead of time if you have any food restrictions. For vegetarians, make sure to mention no egg (this is the case in all of Thailand). The options are a bad sandwich or fried rice, with fruit. The booze is free flowing. Also played some drinking games at the end while we waited for the sun to set. Our guide did have a go pro and took a lot of pictures for us, including underwater. This is included in the cost but it takes them a couple of days to get it to you. A tip is expected at the end.

our guide was amazing and so friendly!! we had such a lovely day with the boat all to ourselves and the chance to see all the hidden gems near Phi Phi - would definitely recommend :)

It doesnt get any better than this. My divemaster Jean was incredible, warm, patient and a fantastic teacher.
