With sheer slate cliffs rising from the sparkling emerald sea, fringed with white sandy beaches and miles of lush jungle, Phi Phi promises true tropical paradise.
With the beautiful Maya Beach used as the backdrop to the movie classic The Beach, the island is also known for its fantastic diving opportunities and is a great spot for both novice and more experienced divers. For a panoramic vista of the whole island, we recommend heading to Koh Phi Phi Viewpoint for breathtaking views before trying your hand at one of the island’s many Thai cooking courses to get a true taste of Thailand.
Phi Phi is the perfect place to relax after a busy city break, perhaps to nearby Bangkok. Or, why not break up your stay in neighbouring Phuket with a few idyllic days in Phi Phi? You’ll soon feel a million miles away.
The Phi Phi Islands enjoy hot, tropical weather year-round, with the dry season lasting from December to April. Expect clear, sunny days, calm seas, and less chance of rain. Temperatures rise in April, with showers to cool things off.
Our favourite time to visit Phi Phi is December to March, when the sun shines almost every day, the waters are warm and calm, and there is little to no rain. Enjoy tropical paradise, with fabulous diving, kayaking, and sunbathing.
May to November bring wind and rain, but rarely all day long. It is a gamble, but if it pays off you can enjoy deserted beaches, lower prices, and a relaxed atmosphere. Travelling by boat can be unreliable due to rougher seas.View all hotels in Phi Phi
