5. Phi Phi Islands
Phi Phi island consists of two large islands – Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. You’ll find a number of popular tourist locations at Phi Phi, including Monkey Beach, Maya Bay and Pi Leh Lagoon.
It's a great location for snorkelling and witnessing Thailand's diverse marine life. Maya Bay is sheltered by 100-metre-high cliffs on three sides and has become one of Thailand's most famous tourist attractions since The Beach was filmed there in 1999.
On the southern side of Koh Phi Phi Leh, you’ll find Loh Sama which offers incredible snorkelling in its beautiful corals. Boats drop anchor in the shallow waters, allowing you to swim, snorkel, and even feed the tropical fish.
Pi Leh Bay is excellent for swimming, with perfect snorkelling opportunities at its entrance. This long thin bay is pretty shallow and only accessible to speedboats and longtail boats.
