Koh Phi Phi 's Activities, Alternative Attraction and Tour Operators.

Surrounded by aquamarine waters and boasting exceptional dive sites, Phi Phi is a diver's paradise. There's a fine selection of qualified operators who can arrange excursions, courses and fun dives.

All levels of experience are catered for - from complete beginners to fully qualified divers and it's even possible to dive with sharks!

You can also take a wooden longtail boat to Phi Phi's neighbouring islands, including Phi Phi Leh, the backdrop for the film 'The Beach', and snorkel in the clear surrounding waters or kayak from Phi Phi's beaches.

If you tire of water based activities, there's plenty to keep you entertained. Thrill seekers can try their hand at cliff jumping for an adrenaline rush and the island is famed for its rock-climbing. More laid back activities include jungle walks through the lush tropical forests of the island's hilly interior.

As with all areas of natural beauty, Koh Phi Phi's land and undersea ecology are delicate, and should be respected - as you're experiencing the stunning environment, remember: look, don't touch, and bring all your litter back for proper disposal.

Koh Phi Phi 's Rock Climbing

There are 7 major walls in Phi Phi, all equipped with glue-in bolts. Some of the best easier grade multi-pitch climbs in Thailand are to be found here, most of which are done over a mesmerizing blue sea. For a beginner, Tonsai Tower on itís own offers about 20 routes grade 5 to 6b+ all in a row. All glue-in bolts. All ring anchors.

Most guidebooks seem to bypass this fantastic climbing area. What follows is our attempt to fill in their blanks. This is a supplement only. You should have a guide book with topos.

Climbing on Phi Phi was started in the late 80ís mostly by Dutch and French expeditions, by the mid 90s climbing practically ceased to exist here due to the well-known problem of bolt corrosion. Yet Phi Phi offers some of the best walls in Thailand with walls of steep limestone overlooking pristine beaches. The following update is to put an end to all the rumors that still persist two years after the tsunami.

There is now a lot of accommodation and restaurants for all budgets. Some of us have camped at the bottom of drinking wall as well as the beach below Tonsai tower. There are ATM machines and all other necessities located in the centre of the island, yet a few minutes away you will find yourself completely alone on stunning beaches where redevelopment has not yet taken place.

All rumors aside, Phi Phi island offers climbing with no crowds, (once outside of touristy area) good rebolted routes and beautiful settings over a lush tropical seascape. It is just someplace you must experiance.

Koh Phi Phi 's Diving

Experience the underwater world of Phi Phi - Come and dive at Phi Phi Island!

Diving around the Phi Phi Islands is a real potpourri of underwater sensations. The dive sites are easily accessible from Phi Phi, Phuket or Krabi and are teeming with a huge variety of tropical marine life. The scenery above water in this part of Thailand is equally spectacular, with limestone cliffs towering over the blue-green ocean. Phi Phi is a true natural wonder, one of the most beautiful places to visit and dive in Thailand.

The Phi Phi (Pee Pee) Islands have become a very popular tourist destination over the last 10 years. You can find accommodation to suit all budgets from small bungalows to 5 star resorts. The tsunami in December 2004 hit the island and her people hard, but recovery has been rapid, and the dive sites were unaffected - PhiPhi is ready and waiting for you!

Sunrise Divers offer you a wide selection of Phi Phi diving trips and PADI courses. Some trips start from Phuket, including overnight and day dive trips to Phi Phi or Hin Daeng. You can also stay on Phi Phi and dive local sites from there, or take a scuba course. Phi Phi has long been a well known place to "do your PADI". We also offer liveaboards to destinations including the Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock.
