Hike from Phi Phi Holiday Inn to Tonsai Village?

Has anyone ever hiked from the Holiday Inn on Phi Phi to Tonsai Village? Ive heard you can do it, but was wondering about how long it takes and if there is a safe path?

We would probably take a long tail boat back, but thought it might be kind of fun to get some exercise and explore the island as long as it was safe.

Thanks!

From Holiday Inn to Outrigger is is a nice easy walk, but from Outrigger on to Tonsai is hard going following a rough path, poorly signposted and involves a lot of effort........at least for this 62 year old!

Hi Andy,

the hike from outrigger to Tonsai took us around an hour and a half.

I have have previously posted some photos showing the rough terrain.

Will try and find them and re-post them.

Thanks for the info! Leightravelclub, were you able to find the pictures? I tried searching on the forum but didn't see them. Also, did you use a GPS to navigate or just rely on the signs? Thanks so much!

Appreciate the photo's, looks like the footpath follows the shoreline, I just assumed it would be higher up along the island, running on from the Viewpoint footpath.

No Jay, the footpath goes right over the top past the viewpoint.

The photos are not in any order........some taken by me and some by Lynda.

The shore photos are from right at the end of the walk...and I can still remember the relief when we finally sighted Tonsai Village.

Trust me.......it is quite a hike.

I doubt many people have done it, but I would be interested to hear from others who have.
