There is a lot to be said for finding a peaceful Phi Phi beachfront resort, digging your toes into the sand, and simply watching the horizon while you enjoy a cold drink. The two soaring limestone islands that make up the world-famous Phi Phi islands offer attractions for both trekkers and water enthusiasts.
But sometimes, the simple pleasures are all you need to enjoy your holiday far away from your workday world. And a holiday at a Phi Phi beachfront resort offers all the solitude and luxurious sense of peace you crave from a tropical island.
Explore Your Holiday Destination
If the urge to explore grabs you after a morning of sun-worshipping on a deserted beach, lace up your walking shoes and explore the island paradise of the Phi Phi Islands.
Phi Phi Don is by far the larger of the two islands and offers plenty of trails to hike on and vistas to photograph. Ao Tonsai Pier is the central pier for the ferry boats that carry passengers to and from the islands, and the village of Phi Phi Don surrounds the pier on the narrow strip of land the connects the two halves of the island.
A leisurely walk through this small and charming island village will show you all the restaurants, bars, dive shops, convenience stores, and souvenir shops you’re likely to need to enjoy your stay on this island in the middle of the Andaman Sea.
Explore both beaches on either side of the village to take in the vistas. If you’re really adventurous, climb up among the cliffs on the west side of the island where you’ll be rewarded with stunning birds-eye views of the village below. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
Sea-life of the Phi Phi Islands
If you’re fond of scuba diving or snorkelling, you’ve in the right place. The islands offer some amazing coral reefs, and sea-life right off the beaches of Phi Phi. The area is undergoing a renaissance of marine conservation, which will ensure the ocean-life and reefs will survive for many years.
The water around the islands is far from any mainland runoff. This means that the visibility of the water around the islands offers crystal-clear sights of jellyfish, octopi, barracuda, colourful reef fish, giant clams, sea turtles, and much more.
The staff at your Phi Phi island beachfront resort will be more than happy to point out some of the popular areas on the island for snorkelling. Whether you’re a beginning or experienced scuba diver, drop into one of the dive shops on the island to arrange for a day out on a dive boat where you’ll see underwater sights that will take your breath away.
Perfect Holiday at a Phi Phi Island Beachfront Resort
Whether you’re a water enthusiast or like your feet firmly on terra firma, a holiday at a Phi Phi Island beachfront resort has something to offer everyone. Or, you can just sit back, order another drink and laze the day away while you stare at the horizon and think of how lucky you are to visit these magnificent islands.
