Luxury Yacht Cruise Area
The Phi Phi Islands are probably the best known and most visited small island group in Thailand. The two main islands, Koh Phi Phi Don and Koh Phi Phi Leh, are located approximately 40km south east of Phuket. Their popularity derives from being the place where the movie “The Beach” (adapted from the novel by author Alex Garland) was filmed, exposing the stunning beauty of Maya Bay to the world.
The two giant limestone islands Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh provide a great backdrop to the surrounding white sandy beaches and calm, crystal clear waters offering some excellent snorkeling opportunities for all participants of this luxury yacht cruise. The entire island group consists of 6 islands all together.
Phi Phi Don
Koh Phi Phi Don is the only permanently inhabited island in the group and is as well the biggest. It has many beautiful white sandy beaches which are great for relaxing and snorkeling. Ton Sai Bay stretches for 2km alongside the steep limestone cliff and is home to Phi Phi town, officially named Ton Sai Village. Before the arrival of tourism, it was a small Muslim and Sea-Gypsy fishing village. Now it is a bustling town consisting of hotels, bars, shops and restaurants catering to the needs of the visitors of this island. There is a nice walk to a lookout point with views across both islands. Also on Koh Phi Phi Don is Monkey Beach, which you will visit on your luxury yacht cruise. This particular beach is inhabited by monkeys which the guests can feed.
Phi Phi Leh
Koh Phi Phi Leh is a smaller and more scenic island than Phi Phi Don and is not inhabited. The spectacular cliffs that drop for about 100 meters into the crystal clear waters are covered with green foliage. It is also home to Maya Bay where “The Beach” was filmed which has some excellent snorkeling. On the east coast of Koh Phi Phi Ley is Hong Pileh, a stunning jade green lagoon surrounded by sheer cliffs and many caves which you will pass on your luxury yacht cruise. One of these caves is the well known “Viking Cave” with ancient rock paintings of boats. These paintings were believed to represent Viking boats but scientific research has proven this wrong. Nevertheless, the name prevails.
