This beach is the most beautiful place I've been! The sand was white, the sea crystal clear turquoise blue, and a beautiful blue sky. I would totally recommend going to this island! Take a picnic and lots of water and you could easily stay here for the day, swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing. I feel so lucky to have been on... More

We stopped here for an hour as part of a tour. Was so overcrowded with boats that it was a little dangerous for the little ones to swim in the water. Ropes everywhere. So many people on the beach too. I found the experience really unpleasant. Not relaxing at all.

This a lovely little island that is easily accessible by a bumpy speedboat ride from Koh Phi Phi Done. Plan to arrive early (before 9:30 am) to avoid the crowds. We arrived at 9:45 and there were about 10 people. 15 minutes later swarms of tourists arrived in large boats. It's a great beach to visit, but if you're into... More

Very nice place with lot of shades. But very hot and cannot stay on the beach but cool off in the shades and have a nice wonderful picnic.

Beware of the currents. It is a pit stop for most of the boat tour operators. No shade! There are toilets available.

This beach is a short boat ride away from Koh Phi Phi Don. We visited here for an hour whilst on a boat tour of the area surrounding Koh Phi Phi. The beach is clean, the sand is white and the water is beautiful - whats not to love!

Although bamboo island comes in the packages they sell with all islands, it's a beautiful spot. It will be crammed with people who gather in the main beach. Exploring the island a bit is worth the "hassle". Just don't litter !!!! I wish we had enjoyed more time over there!!!
