We found tonsai a backpackers heaven. But we were on our honeymoon and wished for something a little cleaner and relaxed. So like another user once described, if you enjoy loud people and getting shitfaced drunk on dirty streets, by all means spend alot of time in tonsai. Otherwise, it serves the sole purpose of shopping for souvenirs and booking... More

We went there in the morning during our stopver at Tonsai bay while coming back from Laemtong bay to Krabi. This meant that the beach almost completely empty and we could see the its beauty all by ourselves, with its aqua blue water and the beautiful green hills. Definitely a must see if you can go there early.

A little paradise in the middle of an aqua blue ocean. Try to visit in low season when tourist numbers are not as many, but well worth a day trip anytime.

A lot of visitors in every nook and cranny. Water related activities by the hundreds and a lot of shops and restaurants. Very busy and a must see to experience all the different tourist cramped between two beaches.

Clean and perfect for relaxing. Nice views of the bay and can be very windy at times. Clear waters and white powdered sand. Wish I had stayed in the island for a night.

We stayed on the other side of the Island and didn't get experience Ton Sai until we were traveling from Phi Phi to Krabi by ferry. Very busy area and you get constantly hassled by people for boat rides. We were only here for an hour waiting for ferry transfer from Phi Phi to Krabi.

The beach is beautiful and the island is magnificent. but this area, especially if you come in high season - is crazy busy, over-crowded, noisy, full of trash - and in general - unpleasant. I guess you can find your spot if you really try to.. but a brief visit to this beach will be enough for most, unless you... More

As far as Phi Phi Don goes the better beach experience is on what I refer to as the Back of the Island (opposite side from the peer: also worth noting is that at this part distance between the two bays is only 570 feet: 173 meters) the back bay is called Loh Dalum Bay and the beach here is...

We visited Ton Sai bay just for a day as we were staying up the north of the island. I am so glad we were there just for the day as it is busy, crowded, noisy etc. If you want to do some island shopping and have lots of bars and restaurants or a place to party this is for... More
