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

Beautiful place, worth to visit if you are in Koh Phi Phi. We got the all day tour and stop at Bamboo Is for about an hour, amazing place.

This is an amazing place to do a tour to. It's absolutely stunning with its pure white sand. Well worth a visit!

Wonderful trip, but only 45 mins stay on the beach as we still have few more islands to go for just 1 day trip. Nice island with clear water and white sand. If overnight for family camping would be a wonderful experience.

Would of been 5 stars, but there was just so much trash piled up 30 feet from the shore line. If you can get past that, the view of the sunset is certainly worth the boat taxi ride there.

One of the most beautiful island in Krabi. White sands, clear waters but don't expect much. It's just an island, great for snorkelling but be reminded that it's way too crowded in the morning.

We were very disappointed as the beach was not properly maintained ! Basically, there was nothing to see and it wasn't good even for swimming . Toilets were dirty . It was like a little Chinatown to us cos there were so many Chinese and we felt very much like we were in China not so much in Thailand

Bamboo island is just beautiful! Crystal clear waters, stark white sand and trees on the edge of the sand where you can sit on the shade and enjoy the view. The only thing that ruins it is the hoards of tourists everywhere you look and all the tour boats spoiling the view. Still worth a visit though!
