Board a high speed boat to whizz across azure waters to the beautiful Phi Phi Islands with their white-sand beaches and towering jungle-clad limestone cliffs.
Visit lovely Maya Bay, the intimate cove where the Leonardo di Caprio movie “The Beach” was filmed. Sheltered by 100-meter high cliffs on three sides the bay has several beaches, most are small and some only exist at low tide. The main one is around 200 metres long with silky soft sand and the whole bay is one big reef.
Relax on the beach or swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters among a myriad jewel-colored fish.
A delicious lunch will be provided during the day and you will have the chance to meet the cheeky monkeys of Monkey Beach.
For your exciting Phi Phi Islands, Monkey Beach & Maya Bay By Speedboat adventure you will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned minivan at around 0800h (08:00am) and will travel to Chalong Pier to board your speedboat.
Accompanied by an English-speaking guide, you will whizz over turquoise waters to the Phi Phi Islands – Phi Phi Le and Phi Phi Don. These islands are famed for their natural beauty, especially their sparkling white sand beaches and breathtaking limestone cliffs. The exceptionally clear seas boast superb coral reefs, home to a wide range of colorful sea life.
Phi Phi Le is the location of Maya Bay, the stunning cliff-encircled beach used in the Danny Boyle film “The Beach”, starring Leonardo di Caprio and Tilda Swinton. Here you can enjoy swimming and some of the best snorkeling in Thailand (snorkeling gear is included in your tour price).
Your day tour also includes a visit to the famous Monkey Beach, a beautiful white-sand beach flanked by jungle-clad limestone cliffs. Monkeys come down to the beach where the tourists will feed them fruits.
During the day water, soft drinks and seasonal fruits will be served on board the boat and you will be served a Thai and Western-style buffet lunch.
At the end of the all-day tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Phuket.
Please contact the activity operator at least 48 hours prior to your tour date to ensure your reservation and confirm your pick-up location and time. (You do not need to dial 011 to contact the activity operator when dialing from within Thailand.)

Please note that the speedboat will be traveling at fast speeds and one should expect a potentially bumpy ride across the waves.
Was good, met some lovely people, tour over commercialised but good value for money, tour guide spoilt it a little at the end by asking 200 baht per person for tip...
Good fun - recommend...
