Tips and Tricks for having the best experience during your Phi Phi Island Boat Excursion
The tour started at Shark Point where I was able to snorkel and swim with the sharks. Don’t worry the sharks were not huge and wouldn’t swim close to humans.
From there the next stop was Monkey Beach where we got to see the monkeys. Depending on the time of day you can experience the beach either during high or low tide. During low tide, you can walk on the beach and the monkeys are on the sand playing around. Low tide is usually in the morning and most likely the pictures that you tend to see more of. However, at high tide, you a wadding in the water, and the monkeys are more in the trees relaxing. One of the top tips the guides give us is not to feed or touch the monkeys.
After Monkey Beach the next point was Loh Samah Bay. Similar to Shark Point it was another beautiful area to go snorkeling at. I found this area a little more enjoyable because the water was a little clearer. The fishes and underwater animals were more vibrant and easier to watch.
Next, the boat took us to quickly view Maya Beach, the backdrop of the movie The Beach. Unfortunately, due to the overpopulation of the beach in the past, the Thai government has shut down the beach to preserve the coral and rebuild the beach. You can only take photos from afar.
Only staying 10 minutes at the site to take pictures we headed toward Pileh Lagoon. Herewith another type of blue water (I swear at every location the water is just as beautiful and just as different) surround by high rock formations in a secluded area it was a fun area to go swimming and chill.
Finally, before heading back to the resort we quickly stop to take pictures at Viking Cave. While we didn’t stay for too long, it was definitely a cool view to take in and something I’ve never seen before.
