A star of the screen, Phi Phi Island holidays offer an intoxicating mix of blonde beaches, pulsing parties and clear waters teeming with colourful fish. Located in the Andaman Sea between Krabi and Phuket, with diving and snorkelling opportunities by day and endless entertainment options at night, this is an exotic Thai getaway with something for everyone.
There are six islands in the Phi Phi island group (also known as Ko Phi-Phi), with Phi Phi Leh and Phi Phi Don being the main attractions for holidaymakers. While you can’t stay on Phi Phi Leh, the second largest island is a popular location for a day trip by boat. The headline attraction here is Maya Bay, which starred in the film The Beach – although, due to overtourism causing environmental issues, the bay has been temporarily shut to allow it to recover.
However, Maya Bay is only one of several magnificent beaches on the islands and you could easily spend your entire Phi Phi island holiday hopping from one powdery-soft stretch to another. Hike or sail to remote bays and coves to lounge and snorkel in peace, or lay your towel in a busier spot and enjoy having bars, restaurants and shops nearby.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
