|PHI PHI LEH (PHI PHI LEY):|
Phi Phi Ley is an uninhabited island whose natural beauty is still unspoiled. The island is mostly composed of towering limestone cliffs that spring up at right angles with the blue water surface. The water is brightly turquoise with the abundant coral reefs and species of fish. There are several magnificent beaches and scenic islands standing offshore. There is no accommodation on Phi Phi Lei, as most of the island is composed of sheer cliffs and small lagoons with teeming fish. Trips leave every day for sightseeing and snorkelling, especially good for beginners as the water is warm, absolutely clear, and shallow.
Made famous as a location for the Hollywood film “The Beach.” Great for snorkelling, lots of coral gardens and colourful fish, although can get a little busy in high season!
Lo Samah bay is located on the southern tip of Phi Phi Le, offering the remarkably breathtaking panorama. Its clear waters and its flourishing coral beds are good for skin diving

The cave is a spectacular scene created by the nature itself; cave and a sea lake formed by a clef between the two cliffs that allows water to enter into a bowl-shaped canyon wherein several nice hidden beaches are shaped. Visitors can stop to relax and snorkel here.
