Bamboo Island

Bamboo Island (Koh Phai in Thai) is one of the six islands belonging to Phi Phi small archipelago in the southern Thailand’s Province of Krabi. Lying approximately five kilometres northeast off Koh Phi Phi Don, Bamboo Island is a tropical dream come true; with 600m on its largest width and 700m on its longest height, the island entirely surrounded with a strip of white sand, and its central part is covered with lush vegetation including Bamboo trees that gave its name to the island in its central part.

Perfect spot for a day trip, Bamboo Island hosts great snorkelling opportunities with the presence of superb coral reefs lying at short distance off its shore, mostly on its western side. A small bar serves drinks and snacks. Day and overnight trips (sleeping in tents) are available from Koh Phi Phi Don, or you could visit the island on a Phi Phi day trip by speedboat from Phuket.

Chicken Island (Koh Gai/Kai or Hua Khwan)

Named after the strange rock formation which looks like the head and neck of an ostrich, chicken or similar member of the fowl family. One end of the island consists of steep cliffs, while the other end has beautiful beaches along a peninsula. At high tide, this peninsula gets flooded, creating a small island. There is no accommodation on Hua Khwan island. Excellent snorkeling opportunities in warm and clear water, rich in coral life.

  • Remarks: Koh Gai can be visited all year round. (Not affected by the monsoon - May - October)

Koh Poda

Located just 8 kilometres offshore, (around 25 minutes by boat) from Ao Nang, Koh Poda is a small island no more than a kilometre in diameter, covered in palm trees and almost entirely encircled by a soft white sand beach.

A coral reef lies about 20 metres from the beach with a variety of sea life. The irresistible combination of excellent snorkeling, scenery and soft sand make the island a popular choice with snorkelers and day trippers, but surprisingly, it's not crowded.

  • Remarks: Koh Poda can be visited all year round. (Not affected by the monsoon - May - October)

Koh Talu

A small island about 45 metres high with strange rock formations. Literally the name Talu means to pass through and in the centre is a 30-metre hole - the result of natural erosion. Talu Island is home to a large number of swifts which provide the nests essential for the Chinese delicacy, Bird's Nest Soup.

Koh Tap & Koh Mor

These two islands offer easy snorkeling. If the tide is low, you can walk along the white, sandy causeway from one island to the other.

Explore a little further with a visit to the Hong Islands, located 25 kilometres NW of Ao Nang. Not to be confused with the other Koh Hong in Phang Nga Bay, these tiny islands are simply beautiful. Spectacular beaches and hidden lagoons with shoals of colourful fish that literally eat out of your hand.

Go sea kayaking - quietly glide through shallow water and explore around caves inaccessible to larger boats. Permanent residents include sea eagles soaring above and starfish just below the surface.

Limited camping facilities are available although, not easy to book. The 200 baht National Park fee is applicable when visiting this island. If you take a tour, check if the fee is included in the price. Read More...

Koh Lanta consists of 52 islands including the largest, Koh Lanta Yai. It's located approximately 70 kilometres south of Krabi Town.

Koh Lanta's scenic beauty may not quite compete with some other areas in the province. However, if you're looking for complete peace and quiet away from the bustling tourist areas, with a few home comforts, head there! Read More...

Two large islands (together about 138sqkm) right in the middle of Phang Nga Bay between Phuket and Krabi. While fishing remains the predominant economic activity and way of life here, the islands are slowly opening up to tourism. Some innovative, community-driven eco tours and small-scale, mostly family-run bungalows and resorts have been developed. A great place to enjoy nature and get a taste of local culture. Read More...

Just south west of Krabi coastline lie the stunning Phi Phi Islands, part of a marine national park that's one of the world's most unforgettable destinations. Phi Phi Don, the larger island, offers sheer limestone cliffs, fine sand beaches and hidden coves. Not far away, coral gardens and deeper reefs are sensational for diving and snorkeling. There are no cars on Phi Phi, just simple small tracks that crisscross the island, so getting around is easy – simply take a local longtail boat, or walk. Read More...
