Phuket: Maya Bay, Phi Phi and Khai Islands by Speedboat
The Phi Phi Islands, also known as Koh Phi Phi, are a stunning-looking archipelago that is located 40 km south of Phuket. It became well-known worldwide in 2000 thanks to the movie The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio, and, since then, the islands kept developing. Out of the six islands in the group, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh are the most famous islands due to their pristine waters, soft sand, beautiful scenery and vibrant parties. These islands are a wonderful way to spend vacation time, and Phi Phi Don has the main town, landing pier and hotels. Another island, Phi Phi Leh is just a few kilometers to the south, and there you will find the famous Maya Bay, a charming location on the uninhabited island. Almost completely surrounded by high cliffs and hidden from sight, the picturesque bay had served as a filming location for The Beach movie together with Viking Cave, Pi Leh Bay and Loh Samah Bay. It is not clear why Viking Cave was given such a name, but the cave features numerous rock paintings, most likely left by pirates who stopped there during their travels from west to east, hiding from the monsoon winds. It is also revered by locals who come here to collect bird nests. Just a few minutes away from the cave, you will find Pi Leh Bay. Surrounded by rocks, it features an impressive underwater world and is a perfect location for snorkeling and observing sharks. On the tour, you will be taken to Ko Yao Archipelago and Khai Archipelago and spend time snorkeling, swimming and sunbathing, while surrounded by soft white sand, amazingly clear water and beautiful views.
You will be picked up from your hotel around 7.30AM and head to Sea Angel Pier. There, you will have complimentary coffee, tea, soft drinks and snacks, and then take a speedboat from the Pier to Yao Yai island. Once you get there, you will swim and relax at the island for 45 minutes, and then change the location to Khai Island. You will snorkel, examine the colorful marine life, swim and sunbathe. At Phi Phi Don Island, you will have a delicious buffet lunch and then get some free time to wander around the lively island or rest on a beach. Then, you will head on a boat to other Phi Phi Islands, visiting the renowned Viking Cave, Pi Leh Bay and Loh Samah Bay. At 4PM, you will return to Sea Angel Pier and get transferred back to the hotel.
