It was raining a lot while we were there but it's definitely a must see if you are in that area! You have to take a long boat from Phi Phi to get to this island.

This beach is really something out of a magazine, it was stunning! Lots of people though as it is a popular tourist attraction so rather try and go in the afternoon. But overall a stunning place!

yes, you can do in low season. I did it in Sep first week. Weather was not very hot and very reasonable. Plus costs were low with less people. Since rain can be a problem, check the forecasts and plan accordingly.
