Full description

Meet your guide in the morning and head straight to Shark Point for some memorable snorkelling. You’ll have time to marvel at the timid Blacktip reef sharks the spot got its name from. Next, hop onto your boat to make your way to the heart-shaped Bamboo Island for a light packed lunch. Explore the island’s secluded white sand beach and tropical bamboo trees, and wade or swim in cool shallow waters. Re-energized, marvel at Nui Bay’s picturesque alcove before heading to Monkey Beach, where limestone cliffs and emerald waters await you. Enjoy meeting the island’s macaques as they wander freely on the sand and in the trees. Move across to Viking Bay, a Pirates of the Caribbean-esque cave with historic paintings of Scandinavian ships on its walls. Then, return to your boat for more tropical island hopping and make your way to Pileh Lagoon for more swimming in turquoise waters. Cool off some more, and swim and snorkel at Loh Samah Bay before making your way to the iconic Maya Bay, where the movie The Beach was filmed. End your sun-kissed day by watching the sunset from a hidden spot, swimming among bioluminescent plankton — a truly magical end to a magical day.

It was a wonderful day! Our guide was lovely (I wish I’d caught his name to review him!) he was super flexible and let us do as we wished really. He even took us to spots that weren’t on the original itinerary. Lunch was delicious. The views were second to none! The only thing I’d say is you could deffo find availability cheaper when you’re on the island. No need to book online.

Our guide was awesome. He was very polite and patient with us! He does a fantastic job and would totally recommend him to anyone. We saw all the major sites around Koh Phi Phi and we even had Maya Beach all too ourselves because he knew what time to go when no one else would be there. Epic! I’m sorry but I don’t remember his name.

Wow, what a beautiful area we got to see and explore. The tour was a little long for us we kinda wished it started at 11 or 12. Got on at 10am and didn’t finish the glowing plankton until 7:30 or so. But we saw so much amazing stuff in one day. Would definitely recommend.
