Is there such a thing as the best beaches on Phi Phi Island? All the beaches are fabulous and unique with soft, silky sand and sparkling clear water. Phi Phi Island is located to the west of the knee of the Andaman Sea just 45 km from Phuket or Krabi Provinces.

Phi Phi is technically made up of two islands - Koh Phi Phi Don (home to Long Beach) and Phi Phi Ley (only accessible by tour or chartered boat). The main island of Phi Phi has excellent seafood restaurants, bars, shops and beaches that defy definition.

Tropical beaches line the southern and eastern shores of Ko Phi Phi Don. Lime stone mountains surround the bays and offer stunning panoramic views along the eastern and southern shores of several beautiful beaches including Laem Tong Beach, Loh Bagao Bay, Long Beach and Loh Dalum Bay.

Laem Tong Beach, also considered "a best" beach on Phi Phi Island and lies to the north of the island. It is a beautiful beach that is ideal for snorkeling or diving. Another "best" rated beach on Phi Phi Island is Long Beach. Long Beach is located on the southern most type of Phi Phi Island and is known for its abundant coral beds and an excellent diving spot. Loh Dalum Bay is a true paradise. It is quiet and located 2 minutes away from Tonsai Bay.
