Beautiful island small enough to walk ..the people are friendly.

Small island in the south of thailand. Clear waters and snorkelling off the beach. No motorbikes for rent because the island is small enough to walk around. A walking street with shops and restaurants is quite alive in the evening.

Very nice island. But be aware where you stay
Jan 2021 • Family
If you stay at Pattaya Beach this might be the nicest beach. But extremly noisy. A lot of boats and speed boats. The bars around are so loud (until 1:00 a.m.) that ear plugs are needed to fall asleep.

More quiet is the sunrise beach. From both beaches you reach the nice walking street easily.

Over developed
Dec 2020
Totally overdeveloped island with little thought given to any preplanning. Basically, any waterfront property is overpriced for what you get when you compare to accommodation at other islands. Pattaya beach and more so Sunrise beach are full of boats. You virtually have to walk through a resort to access Sunrise beach.
Most of the businesses around the island are open. If you want to avoid the crowds then avoid weekends.
I would recommend only visiting for as long as it takes to do 1 or 2 boat trips. Koh Lipe is the proverbial tourist trap of southern Thailand. Note that the racist Marine Park fee is only valid for 5 days. This was a once only visit for me.

Peaceful island with plenty of restaurants!
Dec 2019
We loved Lipe. Two main streets going across the island are occupied by restaurants and shops. You will find every cuisine on this island. All bars close at around 11:00 pm to midnight which permits you to have a peaceful sleep. There are nice bungalows on the north east of the island north of sunrise beach. It is so easy to walk around the island and the island is extremely cozy. There are natural a lot of day trips to be done and luminescent plankton can be seen of shore at night when splashing the water on shore. Make sure to go to the Rockstones Bar in the middle of the island for a special treat ;).

Beautiful island
Aug 2020 • Couples
It takes a long time to get here from Bangkok but I think it is worth it. The water is so clear and the snorkeling amazing. I would highly recommend doing a half day snorkeling around the island. The island itself is pretty small and definitely not a party island. There's not much else to do here, so despite the long journey we just stayed four nights and then headed on to Khao Sok. We paid 4k from the pier to our hotel in Khao Sok for a private taxi door to door and just arranged with the ladies at the pier.

Rustic getaway
Mar 2020 • Couples
Started our holiday in Bangkok and headed to ko lipe after 4 days. Flew with Thai smile which was great and then took a shuttle bus and speed boat to the island. We stayed at Castaway in a 2 story hut with a garden view. It is a lovely place with super friendly staff and everything is well organized. Restaraunt serves good food and they have a happy hour between 4 and 6. Two for one which is a great deal. The prices are absolutely okay and if you want you can find many many small booths and restaurants that are not as nice but offer cheaper food. Some things you should know: beach is quite small with only straw mats in the sands. The beach almost disappears in the afternoon during high tide.Walking on the beach is great. The 2 story huts are not insulated at all so they are hot and unfortunately not super soundproof. The ceiling fans might be enough for some, unfortunately for me, there weren’t . All in all it was one of the nicest places on the island, just be prepared for rustic and simple! A mini fridge and coffee machine could be expected in a place of this price category
