Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The walk from town to long beach is really nice, and the beach is of course from the name very spacious so there’s plenty of room to find your spot and relax. It’s also just on the shore of shark point if you fancy a snorkel to see some black tip reef sharks! The current can be relatively strong here to make sure to swim when there are others in the water and that you are a confident swimmer for the point.
    The beach is really clean, probably being in front of the resort helps.

    We went off for a day trip by longtail boat.
    We did some snorkeling and we saw Maya Bay.
    Our Guide asked us if we want to see Monkey Beach.
    Our kids never saw monkeys in the wild, so a new experience.

    Although we were on a quite distance of the monkeys. Around 20 meters.
    2 monkeys ran to a guy in front of us. He stepped away and 1 monkey saw my daughter and positioned next to her. The other moment the other monkey just came over and bit her in her leg. Just all in 1 second.

    So you have to be aware!!
    Although it was a small bite, we did all Rabies vaccins.
    We learned our lesson, be very careful with wild animals!
    Better safe than sorry..

    In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful beaches on the islands around Phuket. A unique beach with white sand. We had lunch here, and after that we had an hour to swim and relax by the beach. If you are lucky, you may also get this experience and stop on a tour of one of the islands.

    It took us maybe two hours hike from phi phi pier to get to this beach but it was worth it. It is further so not many tourists go there. It is possible to reach it by boat as well. If you will hike prepare for about an hour walk. The beach itself is beautiful, when we got there there was no people. Water is so clear that a bit further in the sea you can see corals and littles fishes. Beautiful place. Would recommend to hike there from the morning and leave before it gets dark.

    Yeah I thought this beach was ok but not the nicest on phi phi for sure. I thought ton Sai beach was nicer and the water cleaner!

    Whilst koh Phi Phi has not been hit significantly by covid cases to my knowledge (in fact, then islanders report the. Population is 100% vaccinated), the impact on tourism has been stark.

    In 2017 I visited Phi Phi. The change in 2021 is stark. Whilst the pier seafront bears the infrastructure of mass tourism (burger King and McDonald's prominent) visitors are lacking. Promenades that would once have been crammed are now empty.

    Which makes visiting the tonsai seafront a very different experience.

    Wanted to eat somewhere nice so sussed out TripAdvisor and it didn’t disappoint. There cannot be a better place to eat on phi phi island it’s just not possible.

    Had the yellow curry tofu - amazing
    The Caesar salad - on point
    Chicken snitzel wrap - best wrap I’ve ever had and Australia is fairly known for their snitty wraps.

    Will be back to try out the rest of the menu over the next few days 😂

    This one is really close to the main market. Also was close to our hotel pp Charlie. Loved the lively dance music, free shots ( really safe and not too strong), and the fire show. It's free entry for all.

    The only place on the island currently offering a fire show (November 2021) and it was great. The staff are nice and the place also has live music every night. Didn’t try the food here but the drinks were fairly priced compared to bars in the area.

    Arrived at shark point on a speed boat in the afternoon. Wasn’t many sharks but was still enough to make me happy as I have never seen a shark before up close, heard it was better to go early in the morning from our tour guide so will probably get a taxi boat out there next time.

    It’s got great music and definitely must be done if on the island! The only thing is that after 4 pm most people are very drunk and can be a bit out of control if you’re not careful. Otherwise great DJs and a vibey atmosphere with a stunning view of the bay!

    It is but inevitable that you want to send some postcards back to celebrate your trip to Phi Phi and what better place than this shop which provides you with a great collection of post cards.
