Where coconut-tree hemmed beaches meet the glistening turquoise ocean, Ko Lipe is a tropical paradise featuring top-quality water sports alongside an exuberant nightlife. Discover this island gem for yourself, joining the flocks of travellers beneath their beach umbrellas for a holiday of relaxation in the sun.
Take up snorkelling or scuba diving for the day, reaping the benefits of crystal clear waters where you’ll find a quarter of the world’s fresh fish resides or check out the major dive sites at 8 Mile Rock or Sting Ray City. If you prefer a day of lounging, Pattaya Beach is the main beach in Ko Lipe, while Sunrise Beach and Sunset Beach are alluring alternatives with their tranquil ambience and snorkelling opportunities.
Dining and drinking is a popular Ko Lipe pastime, equipped with laid-back watering holes offering live music and eclectic cuisine. Traditional Thai cuisine and fresh seafood are well represented alongside Western, Italian, Indian and vegetarian options. The Cliff Restaurant is the place to go for a romantic evening on the waterfront and Limoncello is the ideal spot for great pasta and wine.
Ko Lipe is accessible only by ferry or speedboat routing from Krabi Town, the Phi Phi Islands or Koh Lanta. There are no motorbikes or cars on the island, so the only way of getting around is on foot.
