Koh Lipe: Beaches & areas
Translated as ‘Paper Island’, Koh Lipe has picture perfect white sandy beaches. Relax in a beach side bar, snorkel right off the beach, hike through the jungle or take a boat-trip out to stunning deserted islands in the Tarutao National Marine Park. Several top dive sites are close by for the more adventurous underwater explorers.
Stretching the island’s entire east coast, Sunrise Beach is perfect for long walks. Offering the best snorkelling on Lipe, at high tide you can snorkel around Koh Kra and Koh Usen, two tiny islands located right off the beach. Teeming with marine life and protected from monsoons, Sunrise Beach is quiet and sophisticated.
