One of the main draws of the Thai island paradise of Koh Phi Phi is its collection of white sandy stretches. Aside from the very famous, yet highly protected Maya Bay on the smaller Koh Phi Phi Leh as well as the other sandy stretches on the surrounding tiny island, the main island of Koh Phi Phi Don also boasts its fair share of popular white sandy havens.
This article will primarily discuss the main beaches on Koh Phi Phi Don as they are the sites for most of the hotel and accommodation choices within the entire Phi Phi archipelago. Somehow, the major beaches on Koh Phi Phi Don have developed unique personalities, and thus they attract different sets of tourist crowds.
Booking your accommodation on a particular beach does not mean that you will restricted from exploring the others. In fact, all of these sandy attractions are very much accessible on foot or more conveniently by boat. But as a visitor, it is helpful for you to know the character of each beach as this is one of the main contributing factors to consider when deciding which sandy spot to stay on.
Get to know the beaches of Koh Phi Phi, and decide for yourself.
Ao Lo Dalam
Ao Lo Dalam is one of the two beaches which are separated by Koh Phi Phi Don’s narrow strip of isthmus. It has always been known as the backpacker central of Phi Phi as most of the young travellers who intend to explore Southeast Asia’s Banana Trail flock to this beach. But even Ao Lo Dalam is not escaping progress and development. Bigger hotels are being built to replace the smaller rustic shacks on this part of the island. But no need to worry if you’re on a budget, as there are still a number of affordable accommodation options on Ao Lo Dalam.
