Comprising of two main islands, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Ley, these islands are a part of the Hat Noppharat Thara-Ko Phi Phi National Park.
Phi Phi Don Island One of southern Thailand's most popular tourist destinations, features sheer limestone cliffs and sandy beaches. Anvil in shape, the island covers a total area of 28sq km in length and 3.5km at its broadest point. The neck or handle of the island is where the majority of the tourist accommodation and services are located, and is the central point for boats to dock. An uninhabited section of the island lies to the west, and Cape Laem Tohng, on the northern tip, is home to the Chao Ley, or Sea Gypsys. Diving at Laem Tohng is excellent, as it is also at Hua Rah Ket to the extreme south.
Phi Phi Ley Island Eentirely comprised of steep cliffs, with caves and a sea lake. It features several beautiful bays ideal for snorkeling, and on the northeast side, the famous Viking Cave, which contains pre-historic paintings. The island is also a popular site for nesting swifts, and local people come there daily to collect the nests used to make Bird's Nest Soup, a Chinese delicacy.
To the north of Phi Phi Don lies Koh Yoong Island featuring 2 small beaches and well preseved coral gardens off shore.
Adjacent to Koh Yoong lies Koh Pai Island with small swimming beaches on the north and east side, and coral gardens off the south end.
About 53 islands are included in this group, which form the southern most district of Krabi Province.
