“Paradise - The Best Beach In The World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

This is the best beach in the world. The highlight of our trip to Koh Phi Phi, Thailand and so unforgettable overall. Beautiful white silky sand, turquoise water, amazing views, and too short on a day trip to it. Paradise is the only way to describe it, and I did not find it overcrowded with tourists but then again it might have been the time frame in which we visited. Worth going to Thailand just for this beach.

“Walk away from the crowd!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

Tropical little island swarmed with Asian tourists. Luckily a ten minute walk away from the crowd concentration and it feels like paradise, beautiful beach and not to believe blue water. Bring your own drinks and food and spend a couple of hrs relaxing. Skip Musquito Island, all coral is dead and you have to be careful not to be overrun by (speed)boats.

“True paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

This beach is a true paradise.
This is the best beach in thailand.
The water is extremely clean - Transparent and blue.
Not a lot of crowd - easily possible to find your own spot and swim.

“A highlight of our trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

We arranged a private taxi boat to take us to bamboo island later on and then camped overnight.
It costs 600baht for a tent but the experience was well worth it. Once all the day tourists have left you feel as though you truly are on a deserted island as only a few locals remain who you don't see after sunset.
Was a brilliant night, but don't forget to bring your own supplies should you decide to stay!
