Unbelievably beautiful experience, surreal. I've been wanting to go ever since I saw the movie "the beach " with Leonardo Di Caprio as I'm sure everyone else has. I wasn't sure if it would live up to my expectations however it far surpassed them. Paradise on earth!

Some places had quite a bit of rubbish floating around, other places were beautiful. You just have to take the good with the bad, overall worth a half day trip :)

Even though always full of crowds, this island is the gem of the region. You really feel that you are in another planet, and it is not only Maya beach but all the stops of the day trips, from the hidden " lagoon" to the interior of the island. Absolutely gorgeous!!!

Beautiful, but.... so many buts... :-( It really is a beautiful place but the trash is horrendous and there are so many things that need to be done to clear up, reduce the amount of tourists that visit, reduce the number of boats, etc etc etc... Well worth a visit as it is so beautiful, but this place will be... More

This used to be one of the most beautiful places in Thailand, however it has evolved into an incredibly touristy location, with boat load after boat load of day trippers coming ashore to litter and snorkel. There are other places very nearby that still retain the natural and untouched beauty that was once Ko Phi Phi Le.

This place is really beautiful with crystal clear blue/green water. The sunlight created interesting shades. You can clearly see the fishes in the water and feed them. This place is also very suitable for a swim and snorkelling. Definitely worth a visit along with the Maya Bay.

Do not support ANY company going here until they take it upon themselves to clean the place up, cut way back on the amount of boats - hence people and air pollution - allowed into these beautiful areas. As a former river guide in California, once a year at the end of the rafting season all the companies would ask... More

Done this trip several times before by speedboat, but had to change this time because we had young children with us and a grandmother. Told the boat wouldn't be as big as some so paid the same as the speed boat. Only went to 3 locations instead of the 7 if travelling by speedboat. Stopped for an hour at each... More

My husband visited Ko Phi Phi Le about 10 years ago. He raved about the pristine, natural beauty of this sheltered cove and he was shocked at how much it has changed over the past decade. The beach is still beautiful, but it's hard to experience when packed with hundreds of tourists who take large motorboats for an afternoon visit.... More
