Phi Phi Island Overview | Where is Koh Phi Phi Thailand
Lanah Bay Phi Phi

One of the first questions asked when friends see a picture of Maya Bay is 'Where is Phi Phi island?'. When people see the sheer verdant cliff of the sea walls, the aqua marine of the beaches around the dazzling sun kissed sand and glimpse the coral beneath the surface they are automatically thinking 'when am I going to make it there myself.

Where is Phi Phi island?, but 'where is she?' is the continual refrain. The simple answer is that Phi Phi Island is on the south western corner of Thailand on the Andaman Sea, part of the Indian Ocean. This is worth emphasizing as the majority (90%) of the Thai seaboard is on the east coast in the Gulf of Siam part of the greater Pacific Rim. The popular tourist centres of Bangkok, Pattaya, Koh Samui and Koh Phangan are on the eastern 'Gulf of Siam' and Phi Phi Island, Phuket, Krabi, Koh Lanta , Phang Nga Bay Khao Lak are on the west.

Phi Phi Island is at the southern end of the beautiful Phang Nga Bay just south of some lovely resorts on Koh Yao Noi. It is just 1 hour and 30 minutes from the rock climbers paradise of Railey Beach or the remote island of Koh Lanta. On the west is the famous Phuket island with it's long sandy beaches and classy 5 Star Phuket Island Resorts

Where is Phi Phi island for diving.

Phi Phi Island diving is some of the best in Thailand because it has such a natural setting. Phi Phi Dive sites are highly varied with a very high number of marine species due to the mixture of rocky out crops, swim through, wall diving, wreck diving, cave and deep diving sites as well as some of the more famous dive sites like at Maya Bay. Phi Phi Diving is very different to the diving on the eastern coastal waters of Thailand of Koh Tao or Koh Phangan, as it is part of the Indian Ocean eco system.
