Koh Phi Phi: lots of visitors on the beach, but the spectacular geography can’t be tarnished

The Phi Phi Islands are two large and dramatically beautiful rocky protrusions from the sea in Krabi province, 48 kms southeast of Phuket. Only one island, Phi Phi Don, is inhabited, while the more rugged Phi Phi Le has virtually no flat land. The former has about twenty beach accommodations, from budget bungalows to 4-star spa resorts in five beach zones. Some hotels make idyllic, romantic hideaways, while others are well suited for children and families. All hotels here face sandy, coconut-trimmed beaches.
.
The incredible beauty of northern Phi Phi Don has made some list it among the most beautiful islands in the world. It has thus become a major day-trip destination from Phuket, with thousands of visitors arriving daily in the high season. Needless to say, it is no ‘lost paradise’. Some say the crowded tourist village at Ton Sai ruins the atmosphere. Yet the backpacker generation loves the high energy night-time buzz in the midst of beauty, while older folk generally seek accommodations on quieter beaches.
.
Despite the ugly development on Ton Sai beach nothing can detract from the overriding, geographic majesty of Phi Phi. Vertical rock walls tower skywards from calm turquoise waters. Small bays and inlets are sunk deep into the rocky formations. Verdant forest atop the ragged rock formations adds to the beauty and drama. Phi Phi is certainly worth at least a day trip, if not an overnight stay.
.
Several day-trip ferries with capacities in the hundreds run between Phuket and Phi Phi each day, while others ply the routes from Krabi and Koh Lanta. Many travellers use this as a means to get between Phuket and Krabi and Lanta, often with an overnight stop in Phi Phi. The best way, however, to see the Phi Phi Islands from either Phuket or Krabi is to get a family or group together and rent a speed boat for the day. With independent transport you can get there before the crowds, and can also see much more while avoiding the big ferries and their hundreds of passengers. Diving and snorkelling are both popular here.
.
The beaches near Ton Sai village have budget beach cottages for the younger set who join the evening bar & disco scene. Yet the majority of those who stay overnight in Phi Phi do so well away from the noisy bustle of Ton Sai. Many of the better quality, 3- and 4-star resorts lie up the quiet east coast.
.
Ton Sai Bay is Phi Phi’s only safe anchorage, with all daytime passenger boats stopping at the jetties here and virtually all vessels that overnight here anchoring in the deep bay that enjoys calm conditions through both monsoon seasons.
.
To fully appreciate the dramatic geography of the two Phi Phi islands, and their multitude of little bays and rocky inlets, open the photo gallery here, and some of the guide pages that detail all beaches in thee islands.
