The morning is spent at Phi Phi Ley, the uninhabited Phi Phi Island. This is the best area for Phi Phi snorkeling.
Phi Ley cove. A stunning lagoon surrounded by high cliffs. You can jump from the boat for a swim here.
Maya bay. Famous because of “the beach” movie and truly a beautiful bay. From the beach you can explore the jungle path behind. *(Maya bay is closed for conservation until further notice. The boat will pass the bay for photo taking, but will not stop on the beach).
Camel Rock. Spectacular rock formations for sightseeing and photos.
Viking cave. Where Swiftlet nests are harvested to make “Birds nest soup,” popular in Asia for it’s healthful qualities.
Monkey beach. A white sand beach with lots of cheeky monkeys. (No feeding the monkeys please).
Loh Samah Bay and Nui bay. Favourite snorkeling spots at Phi Phi Ley, both are beautiful coves with coral reefs and lots of fish.
At lunch time the boat moves to Bamboo Island. This tiny island has powdery white sand beach with turquoise water for swimming and snorkeling. A picnic lunch is served in the shade of the casuarina trees.
After lunch there is a second organised snorkeling session, probably at Hin Pae, a submerged rock (coral mountain/bommie). The guides will be in the water with you to look for marine life and to take photos. All snorkeling equipment is provided.
Then the boat moves to Phi Phi Don island, to the quieter east side. You can relax on the beach at Laemthong or explore the local village.
