Beautiful beaches unfortunately quite crowded. We went on a boat and our guy docked the boat quite far away from the main beach (probably so he can keep the entrance fee for himself..) and we needed to go to the main beach through a lot of stones (not enjoyable and in moments -not safe without special shoes..). However still totally... More

Visited this as part of a tour organised by Andaman Islands Tour and Travel in Trang. There were lots of things to see and do on this trip, but this was my favourite. We stopped off here en route to Maya Beach. The water was crystal clear and so clean and warm, so I was able to have a lovely... More

We had prepaid our trip to Maya Bay for a longtail boat to show us the islands. The agent asked us to pay 800 for the halfday toyr BUT he didn't mention we had to pay 300€ as soon as we reached the Bamboo island( which to be honest wasn't interesting at all) if we wanted to visit Maya later....

Comparatively bigger and larger beach than the others around phi phi island and it is vey quiet place for having sunbath, snorkeling or photo-shoot. I did picnic lunch here with my tour group. The sea water is best in krabi for sure.

The beach is gorgeous, like every other beach in Thailand, men are the problem ! The beach is crowded but not as overcrowded as maya bay: at bamboo there is at least some room to breathe and not have your personal space invaded😥. The waters are cristal clear and if you put a little effort into it you might find... More

We had lunch on this island. We also had a great swim on this island. Beautifull beach and clear blue sea water. Aresta had a great spirit with a tour guide Beyonce was her name. The best tour we had.

A long tail boat over to bamboo island and a entry fee onto the island of 400baht. A really nice beach and great snorkeling! Recommend a visit however if you do it on a tour it works out cheaper!
