About Phi Phi Islands
Phi Phi islands are located in Southern Thailand, about 22km/14mi west of Ko Lanta. Phi Phi islands include two big islands Ko Phi Phi Don and Ko Phi Phi Leh, and a few smaller ones Ko Mai Phai, Ko Yung, Bida Nok and Bida Nai. Ko Yung has earned a special status among divers for its wide variety of colorful coral reefs. There are many small places suitable for snorkeling including Maya Bay, Gulf Pileh and Loh Samah Bay located on the island of Ko Phi Phi Leh and open for divers of all levels as well as more deep-seated reefs attracting more advanced divers.
Best dive sites are considered the islands Bida Nok and Bida Nai, two small adjacent limestone karsts to the south of Phi Phi Leh, with near-vertical cliff walls rising from the sea. This place is suitable for divers of all skill levels, including beginners. Other great dive sites in the area of Phi Phi islands include Hin Daeng and Hin Muang. From Phi Phi islands it is also recommended to visit the Phuket's best dive sites: Shark point, Anemone Reef, and King Cruiser wreck, which is lying at the depth of 32m/105ft.
