When you first think about visiting Phi Phi Lee, in Thailand, you might be motivated by those unforgettable images you saw in Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The Beach”… And it’s actually a great choice: a small and idyllic hidden bay of tranquil pristine waters surrounded by huge rocks that make you feel you’re in a huge natural pool within a unique secret paradise…
The thing is the movie transformed this unknown treasure into a very popular beach destination, so now it’s not easy to find this beach empty of boats and tourists from around the world… But –and this is an important “but”– it will always be an unforgettable paradise: even those long tail boats with their beautiful and colorful flower arrangements are an essential part of the Thai landscape that will only give you nostalgia once you look at your pictures back home.
You might not know that, since this is a very small island, it’s a place where you just go for a few hours during the day, but you don’t spend the night there. Our suggestion is to stay in a hotel on Phi Phi Don –another magical island, we will write about soon!– and then rent a long tail boat to visit the different beaches in the area, where you can swim, relax and be on your own time!
The best time of the day to visit Phi Phi Lee is early in the morning, that way the beach will not be as crowded with tourists, and you will have your own space to relax and capture the perfect picture!
Summer, spring, winter or fall, any time of the year is great for visiting this unbelievable Thai paradise!
