“And there goes Lipe.”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

2012 was the last of perfect Lipe. 2013, Pattaya Beach is filled with Boats, dirty shorelines, dead corrals and once white sand is now brown. Please pick up after yourselfs. This poor island is now suffering from mass tourism.

“Busy Hub for Koh Lipe but Romantic at Sunset”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

This is the main beach on Koh LIpe - lots of activity, boats landing from mainland or from Langkawi, Malaysia quite a few times a day. There are plenty of beach front bars and restaurants that come alive at night, wonderful place for families, groups of friends as well as couples.

“More a harbour than a beach”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

A start beach for all boats from Koh Lipe. Very crowded and busy with longtails and speedboats. The Walking street starts here. Not good for swimming, relaxing at all.

“the most famous beach”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

most visitors stay along thus beach, coz there r numerous resort, restaurants & bars here. & walking street closed to this beach compare to others. Sand & water of this beach r excellent, but the rubbish & raw material pull boat spoil the scene.

“Nightlife”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Party, expensive drinks, good place to gather and hang around. In the evening you can see all the speed boats parked there. In the high season a lot of longtails move to Pattaya from Sunrise beach. But the beach is cleaner than other two. Restaurants, bars and resorts dominate this beach.

And it will get even busier in the following years. Koh Lipe is becoming next Phi Phi somewhat. Construction work is spread all over the island building resorts and new hotels. Not much time left for visit Lipe like it used to be.
