Great island with an amazing beach

Stopped over at this island after touring the Phi Phi islands and i must say it was really great, chilled there for about 30 minutes and it was so relaxing

One of the stops during our Island Hopping activity. Island is just normal. Lots of cracked shells and tree branches which makes walking difficult. No need to visit if you'll go to Krabi. Try other islands instead.

Don't miss this island if you travel on Phi Phi. Just ask for the boat or speed boat. It is cheap and very fast to reach the island. Unfortunately it was full of tourists, so it would be better to go the early in the morning.

The main beach on Bamboo Island will often be very crowded by tourists arriving by tour boats, there is plenty to see on the island which is totally worth the effort for taking pictures and hidden places that are often not discovered by tourists.

As part of the Phi-Phi Islands tour, we visited this beautiful island. I was mesmerized by the clarity of the waters around and the white sands. Unlike the name... Casuarina tree-groves of which cover most of the island.

We arrived on Bamboo island during our snorkeling trip. It was a lovely afternoon with a nice beach. We had a bite to eat on the bench and enjoyed the sunshine.
