“good but couldn't swim”
Review of Loh Da Lum Bay

Loh Da Lum Bay
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Very picturesque bay where you can wade and wade and wade... then hire a kayak if you like. Some nice beach bars and restaurants but honestly - go to Long Beach if you want to swim.

On the other side of Tonsai Bay is Loh Da Lum Bay. Brilliant for swimming, just be sure to swim where there aren't any long tail boats allowed!

By the end of it, near the Monkey Beach, you'll find the best service around the Bay. There's this little guest house and bar where they give you chair (at no charge!), make amazing drinks and food and the staff is also very kind, a lot different from everywhere in Phi Phi.

I've been visiting Koh Phi Phi for a few years now. It's touristy but spectacular with stunning views. Just one problem, the water.

The sewage treatment plant for much of the island lies on the far East end of the beach. It doesn't appear to be very well maintained (if at all) or effective at treating wastewater. There is a stream of overflow that dumps directly into the bay. This is a massive health hazard that most of the tourists wading in the waters seem to be completely unaware. I stay on other beaches well away from this bay, only coming to dine at the restaurants and watch the sun set.

Koh Phi Phi is rolling in cash from tourists, cleaning up the sewage would be a priority if more people were aware of the situation. I don't mind touristy, I do mind swimming in sewage.

The most beautiful place we have ever visited. Backpacker sort of area with some bars along the beach.
