Phi Phi Islands are a collection of stunning islands situated between Phuket and the west coast of mainland Thailand. Phi Phi Leh and Phi Phi Don are the two largest where thousands of tourists flock to experience the palm fringed beaches and jutting limestone cliffs that rise from the sea.
Phi Phi Don is the only populated island in the group, and has been so since the 1940’s when Muslim fisherman began to settle here, even today the majority of residents are direct descendants from these earlier adventurers.
Soon after the fisherman arrived, Phi Phi Don became a coconut plantation, and today the island’s economy is very much driven by tourism.
Phi Phi Leh has had a very different history and was known purely as a stunning snorkelling and dive site revealing an amazing underwater world until it featured in the blockbuster movie ‘The Beach’ in the year 2000.
Maya Bay on Phi Phi Leh was used as the film set and has since become a popular destination for day trippers and has boosted tourism to the islands considerably.
