Long Beach - Koh Phi Phi
With stunning views over Phi Phi Leh, fine white sand and excellent snorkelling, Long Beach is good for those who like quiet days and nights. Accessible by foot from Tonsai Village or by Longtail boat, you are still close to Phi Phi’s famous nightlife should you change your mind.
The sand on Long Beach seems whiter, even finer than the rest of Phi Phi. A small number of hotels and few daytrippers keep this beach peaceful and quiet. With some of the best snorkelling on the island, the water is teeming with life right off the beach. Around 200m from shore is a rock that just breaks through the water’s surface. Called Shark Point, black tip reef sharks can be spotted at dawn and dusk. Strong swimmers and kayakers can reach Shark Point though check with your hotel first as there can be strong currents. Volleyball is popular with locals and guests at sunset. There is a great choice of massage parlours offering traditional Thai massage as well as western style.
Around 6 resorts stretch along the beach, each with their own restaurant/bar. Known for good quality dining and fresh seafood, you will find a mix of international and local dishes. A couple of bars offer night time entertainment, though party seekers head into Tonsai Village.
While there are only a few options hotel wise, accommodation does vary from cheap to deluxe bungalows.
