Was a nice island but like most of Phi Phi its long since been drowned in day trip tour groups in a variety of speed boat and long tails. Still worth a visit if your not expecting paradise lost

clear waters , beautiful fish close proximity from Holiday Inn Phi Phi. Long Tail boat can be arranged by the HI Staff - minimal cost. Good for a combination with Mosquito Island

First stop of our Phi Phi tour. Get off and nothing else can do here besides taking photos and sitting on the beach because we only got one hour to stay here. Nothing significant here so don't expect anything that can surprise you here. Just snap some photos and ready to get back to your boat.

My wife and i visited in November 2014. We visited by longtail boat from the Outrigger Resort. The longtail boat cost $58.00 USD for 4 hours. If you step out on the beach it costs $6.20 USD per person. This gives you the opportunity to stand with a gazillion Chinese tourists on a day trip from either Krabi or Phuket.... More

One of the most beautiful island around Kho Phi Phi, BUT... Stay away from the front beach where all tourists boats stops. Go for a walk around the island and you will find amazing views and little beaches all for yourself. No tourists there.

We rented a long tail boat with to take us around Phi Phi, Phi Phi Ley, Mosquito & Bamboo Island. For me, Bamboo was the most beautiful among those. Amazing white sand beach and perfect turquoise sea. Looks like heaven! If you are on Phi Phi definitely a must see!

Not included in all sightseeing Tours because is a bit farther. This island has the most beautiful beach of all the nearby islands. I heard that it is even possible to stay there for the night and watch the stars. Get there early if possible.

There are many more interesting islands in Tailand than Bamboo. It was too crowdy, with almost only Chinese people having picnic time there. Island with no palm tree - this probably was unique.
