We stopped at Bamboo Island as part of our Phi Phi Island tour. It is a very picturesque setting and the soft, sandy white beach and warm water are stunning. The disappointment was there was no bamboo in sight, the amount of litter lying in the sea while snorkeling and the very poor conditions of the toilet facilities which included... More

We visited Bamboo island as part of a day trip to Phi Phi. Is is a very beautiful island and the water is lovely and warm. It was fairly busy here but not as busy as Maya Bay and Phi Phi so definitely worth a visit.

We booked our private boat and went to Mosquito and Bamboo island fora whole day :) It's great, relaxing, just swim in the beautiful sea and tan. We went in low season and was crazy full, so I suggest to get your boat. In an organized tour you stop here an hour... not enough to enjoy with so many tourist.... More

Powdery sand, lovely trees, overrun by noisy disruptive mainland Chinese tourists, pity about the litter floating offshore, not long before the horrible diesel/ kerosene fumes and slicks from the tourist boats kill off the coral and the fish move to other locations

slightly more expensive as compared with Phi Phi + maya + Khai island. however Bamboo Island worth every $ that you paid for. white sandy beach, consider clean, clear sea water, wonderful place to chill and relax. However, it was crowded with china tourist. hmmmm.... not so pleasing with this.

Bamboo Island - Hands down! It's the beach beach I've been to in Thailand. The water so blue you can see the fishes. White sandy beach, the beach is perfect. I would love to go back! Bamboo Island is by far my most favorite beach in our entire island hopping in Phi Phi. Highly recommended. You wont regret!

Koh Mai Phai (AKA Bamboo Island) and nearby Koh Yung can be reached by long tail boat from Phi Phi in less than 30 minutes. Both islands offer superb snorkeling in crystal clear waters. Abundant variety of fish with beautiful coral. Bamboo Island beaches are white sand, clean, and extend around most sides of the island. No services or facilities... More
