Phi Phi Islands
Lying in Phang-Nga bay about 45km east of Phuket and 30km south west of Krabi, two breathtaking limenstone islands make up Koh Phi Phi; the largest island of Phi Phi Don being a few kilometres north of Phi Phi Lae. Limestone cliffs rise vertically into the sky, where the trees take over. There are many beaches coves and bays which make for dramatic scenery to enjoy surface intervals during your liveaboard vacation in Thailand.
There are many, many dive sites around the Phi Phi island group, many consisting of wall dives, the limestone dropping to depth ranges between 10m and 25m. The walls can have gorgonian fans, soft corals and coral bushes and interesting rock formations and swim throughs. At the base of these walls there are often hard coral gardens to explore. You can expect a great amount of fish life, including lionfish, wrasse, moorish idols, angelfish, rays, trevallies. Also keep an eye out for leapord sharks sleeping on the sandy bottoms or blacktip reef sharks cruising the reefs. Turtles can also quite commonly be seen here. Lastly do check the fans and bushes for tigertail seahorses and harlequin ghost pipefish.
