Peace and crystal clear water !

This island is quite far from the main island of Phi Phi but it really worth it. Try to go early there, you will have the island for yourself !

Absolutely beautiful island, the beach was like a paradise. We arrived at about 11 and it was still empty and we had about one hour to relax before MILLIONS of Asian tourists arrived on their boats and the peaceful quiet atmosphere was completely ruined. If you are going to enjoy this island, make sure you leave as early as possible... More

Amazing island, how you would imagine paradise. Clear blue sea and soft white sand with palm trees and not TOO many people compared to some of the other islands you can visit, also the snorkelling is amazing here so many fish to see that let you swim near them. Favourite island so far in Thailand :)

Bamboo island is a beautiful little island with beautiful beaches but they can become quite crowded with tourists.

In my opinion, this is the best beach in Phi Phi. Crystal clear water, nice trees surrounding the beach. Fantastic! Go earlier though! I've been 2 times on this beach. The first time I visited as part of a 1/2 day tour. Second time I took a long tail boat straight to the island. I would recommend to go in... More

This small island is a very good place for snorkeling. The beach is also beautiful. It's protected by Marine National Park.

Lovely big beach - we arrived early so got to see it isolated in its full beauty. By 8.30am there were speed boats everywhere - you couldn't get yo the water there were so many - spoiled it a lot!!

This beach is amazing. White sand, colored see, shadow in the beach for the trees that grow in the sand. It would be a great idea to spend a day here.

Came here for lunch, but the snorkeling here was superior to our other spot. Saw many parrot fishes and a sea snake. One could even snorkel while standing on the sand or rocks.
