Phi Phi Rock Climbing The limestone cliffs of the Phi Phi Islands plunge straight down into the aqua marine sea... stunning. The lush vegetation provides the shade to make it all a bit cooler. Given that it is such a beautiful climbing destination, climbing is not popular on Phi Phi. This means the routes are often uncluttered. Bring your guide book. There are some bolted routes.
Phi Phi Original Activities Besides the usual beach activities and water sports like diving, a wide variety of other activities is on offer on the Phi Phi Islands. Something for everyone, from cock fighting to Muay Thai tournaments or sports like kayaking, rock climbing and cliff jumping are readily available.
