Koh Phi Phi, the jewels of the Andaman Sea

This archipelago in the Andaman Sea is a marvel of nature.
The two largest islands are called Koh Phi Phi Don and Koh Phi Phi Leh, the former being the only inhabited one. Access is usually made by boat from the island of Phuket and through Krabi-Ao Nang on the mainland coast, it is also possible from other islands in the Andaman Sea.

Maritime excursions
There are three types of boats.
ยป Long-tail boats, the traditional vessel, with several sizes. Pretty but a little less comfortable. Faster than the ship.
ยป Speedboats, more expensive, but the first to arrive.
ยป Ships, the largest boats, offer a good price. You travel slower but are covered, better protected. Keep in mind that they can add more than 100 passengers together.

Whenever possible and convenient, we recommend hiring a long-tail boat in a private group and getting up earlier than other visitors, in order to fully enjoy the excursions.
