Taking a tour of the uninhabited Bamboo Island (aka Koh Mai Phai) in Krabi, Thailand is a truly wonderful way to spend a day. Located 5 kilometers north of Phi Phi Don, this idyllic tropical paradise is part of the Phi Phi Island archipelago. Only a 45-minute boat ride from Krabi, Bamboo Island is a flat evergreen expanse of beautiful white sands.
Bamboo Island Tour Highlights
Even though the island is small, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy all day.
- A walk around the entire island takes approximately thirty minutes. It is a stunning stroll. You’ll be surrounded by a vast variety of fauna, and the lovely turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea.
- Relax, read and sunbathe on its beautiful beaches.
- Go swimming and snorkeling. The island’s beautiful marine life is only 50 meters from the beach. You’ll be able to see beautiful colored coral reefs, and many colorful fish, such as sea fans and maybe even a (harmless, if you don’t touch it) leopard shark.
- The sheltered bays make diving very desirable. There the currents are weak, visibility is high, and the water is warm.
- Have a lunch on the beach, while sipping your favorite beverage.
What to Bring for a Tour of Bamboo Island
When planning to swim, walk, and or snorkel when touring Bamboo Island, you should bring the following items:
- Flip flops
As there is no pier, you might have to wade in a few inches of water to get to the beach, so you might want to wear shorts or your bathing suit.
