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
Koh Lanta Yai
The largest of the islands,it was known long ago by its name in the
Malay language, Pulao Satak, which means Long Beach Island. The
island is a favourite spot for those who seek peace and solitude,
and is the home of the District and National Park offices.
Mountainous and rugged in some spots, especially near the southern
tip; with a combination of gravelly and fine white sandy beaches,
the island is also home to a clan of Chao Ley, or Sea Gypsies who
preserve many of their ancient customs and ceremonies. Some
accomodation and services are available, and the island is easily
accessed by ferry from Ban Hua Hin Pier in Tambon Koh Khlang; Bor
Muang Pier in Tambon Sai Kao; or Jao Fah Pier in Krabi Town.
