Located about 5 km north-east of the northernmost tip of Phi Phi Don, Bamboo Island is is the most north-easterly island of Phi Phi Archipelago. Known by locals as Koh Mai Phai, this little gem in the Andaman Sea is a true tropical paradise. Bamboo Island is just a short strip of astonishing white sand that rises from the sea surface and nothing more. With a shape like a heart, it is only 600 meters wide and 700 meters long. The central part of island is covered with lush vegetation, mostly Casuarinas trees and the Bamboo, hence its name. On the north-eastern side of the tiny island, under the shade of trees, there is a small bar for visitors, which serves drinks and snacks. Koh Mai Phai's beach is one of the most beautiful of all Phi Phi Islands. Constituted by soft white sand like talcum powder, the beach is surrounded by crystal turquoise waters. The stunning coral reef is close to the shore and offers an unforgettable underwater view to the snorkellers. The side of reef towards Phi Phi Don, known as Hin Klang, is rich of rocks covered with coral formations and teeming with marine life, a natural swimming pool that gives the feeling of swimming in an aquarium. Bamboo Island is the perfect spot for an excursion from Phi Phi Don with long-tail boats from Ton Sai Bay, 45-minute boat ride, or even better from Moken Sea Gypsies village on Laem Thong Beach, 15-minute ride. Although the island is also often by day trips from Phuket, as a stopover in the afternoon or for the lunch buffet time, the beach is most of the time never too crowded.Read More
