  1. 5.0 Adang Sea Divers (800 reviews)
    - Best dive center
    Monday: 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM Scuba & Snorkelling
    Adang Sea Divers image
    We had a super duper great experience at adang. all staf were very easy-going.they are very professional at the same time very friendly.we feel safe when diving with them. David and Sean are doing great job as our instructor. We had a quick brief before dive about the route and marine life as well as the safety briefing. I highly recommend this diving centre as your first choice to dive in koh lipe. The only discontentment that we encounter is the photo package.not even a group photo taken underwater.but,nvm’s the experience that matters.thank you guys rock!!! See more..
  2. 5.0 Ko Lipe Diving School (451 reviews)
    - Fantastic Dive Operation! #1 on Koh Lipe
    Monday: 8:00 AM - 10:00 PM Scuba & Snorkelling
    Ko Lipe Diving School image
    My partner and I just finished 13 dives over 7 days with Koh Lipe Diving School. We did 10 fun dives and the PADI Deep Diver (40M/130ft) course with a great team of Instructors and Divemasters. English, French, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish all spoken here. Would highly recommend Eric and his team for your Koh Lipe diving choice - highly professional across the board, safety is paramount at each step of their operation and your experience. Friendly and fun, great boats and rental gear, and with a broad range of dive sites you are guaranteed a top notch experience here - not something guaranteed with all dive shops in Thailand. Highly recommended for both training and fun dives. Good lunch with fruit, drinks provided during boat excursions and the dive shop is well equipped with most gear you might need or have forgotten. Strongly recommended! We're returning soon :) Steve and Shiro See more..

    Keiritas Yoga & Diving image
    Myself and my wife had a really great time diving with Keira. It was my wife’s first time diving and she felt really safe, calm and comfortable underwater with Keira. We would highly recommend Keira for anyone wishing to dive when visiting Koh Lipe. We also took a Yoga class to which we found fun and challenging, shame we only had a couple of days there we would have liked to have done more. Thank you Keira hopefully see you again soon, from Keith & Apple x See more..
  4. 5.0 Chado Cliff Viewpoint (22 reviews)
    - Tired but worth climbing up
    Spent 2-3 hours Lookouts
    Chado Cliff Viewpoint image
    I went there last November with my friend. We started climbing up in the morning and it took around 2-3 hours as we always stopped when we were tired. lol There are 3 view points. The first one, you can see Koh Lipe 3/4. The second and third, you will see it in full and it's really amazing. It's worth climbing up!!! See more..
  5. 5.0 JK Blue Beach Massage (16 reviews)
    - Massage in a beautiful peaceful location
    Monday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Spas
    JK Blue Beach Massage image
    We found JK Blue on the beach and it is now at the Mali Sunrise resort on their beachfront deck. (There is also an air conditioned shop on the street behind Sunrise Beach) we had a message here almost every day of our holiday, the girls are kind and friendly and excellent masseuse, the location overlooking sunrise beach with the breeze wafting and the sound of the sea is beautiful. Highly recommend. The beach location is slightly more expensive but in our view worth it! See more..
  6. 5.0 Hi Lipe (8 reviews)
    - Awesome trip
    Monday: 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM Scuba & Snorkelling • Taxis & Shuttles • Speed Boats Tours • Kayaking & Canoeing • Day Trips

  7. 5.0 Ko Kra (3 reviews)

    Spent 1-2 hours Islands
    Ko Kra image
    A Beutifull little kay or island, good spot for picture of Koh lipe and kayaking or snorkel around, try not to go with low tide cause could harm the coral. See more..
  8. 4.5 Ko Lipe (2.241 reviews)
    - Unsure whether to share
    Ko Lipe image
    We have travelled a lot especially in Thailand and hands down this was the best trip in recent years and a stunning, beautiful island. Not to mention the lovely people. We were not hassled, the prices were fair and often semi fixed so no silly haggling over 1-2 dollars! The food was excellent and the water was clear, warm and blue. There are no cars and you can visit several beaches easily and cheaply. We stayed on sunset beach which was mostly unspoilt and had the softest, white soft powdery sand I’ve ever seen, plus snorkelling right off the beach. There is enough to do, great massages, good bars, fab shopping and snorkelling and diving trips without it feeling over done. The only gripe is other tourists-smoking incessantly and leaving their buts littered on the sand and yes the long tails can be noisy and could be sectioned off in more contained areas. We loved it and hope it doesn’t become spoilt. See more..
  9. 4.5 Sunrise Beach (1.350 reviews)
    - A beautiful beach with soft and pristine sand and clear turquoise sea water
    Sunrise Beach image
    In Koh Lipe, there are three main beaches, The Pattaya Beach, The Sunrise Beach and the Sunset Beach. But if you prefer to laze on the beach, enjoying the sunshine, then Sunrise beach will be more suitable as there are not many boats docking at the beach. The beach is more quiet and peaceful. The scenery here is breathtaking! You can walk the long stretch of clean, soft and pristine while enjoying the beautiful scenery. You may also snorkel in the clear turquoise water. Over here, visitors are spoiled by choice for accommodation on this beach with a great selection of luxurious hotels to budget lodgings. There are also a few eateries where you can indulge in. Or you may walk to the Lipe Walking Street where there are plenty of seafood restaurants. It is just a few hundred meters walk. For your information, the price of the resorts here varies very much. The price can escalate to almost double the amount! See more..
  10. 4.5 Forra Diving - Day Tour (309 reviews)
    - Incredible experience
    Scuba & Snorkelling
    Forra Diving - Day Tour image
    Forra Diving is a PADI certified diving school run by a French couple. Antoine is a professional diver with many years of experience and Valerie is the good soul who takes care of almost everything. We quickly decided to do the PADI Open Water Diver course, which lasts 3 days. As a diving instructor we got Rafaniël, who was a godsend. With his patient and loving nature, and the way he explained things and taught us the basics - all of this made us feel comfortable and safe at all times. One should not underestimate this sport, it follows very serious procedures. It takes a teacher to encourage you from time to time and strengthen you to go a little further. Rafaniël masters all this to perfection. It felt like we we were part of a family.. See more..
  11. 4.5 Koh Lipe Castaway Divers (177 reviews)
    - Great dive experience
    Monday: 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM Scuba & Snorkelling • Boat Tours • Stand Up Paddleboarding • Kayaking & Canoeing
    Koh Lipe Castaway Divers image
    We did a couple of dive trips with castaway and they were great. Chris was an excellent and knowledgeable dive guide, always careful about safety and keen to ensure we got maximum enjoyment from our experience. It was great diving with a small group from the longtail boat, mostly we would be the only divers in the water and we saw some beautiful sights. See more..

  13. 4.5 Sanom Beach (139 reviews)
    - Fabulous beach,the best in Ko Lipe
    Sanom Beach image
    This secluded beach is only accessible by boat,kayak,or a short walk on a plank walkway. The water is limpid, slow sloped, has beautiful fine white sand and rocks with a great variety of fish. Further west,you can also access two smaller" secret beaches" , great for snorkeling. Please don't spoil these places with your fag ends, picnic left overs,or bottles! There are very few places like this in the world... It is a calm, very low key beach with a moderate amount of swimmers, no music or screaming babies. There's an option for drinks and snacks at the beach, and sun loungers to rent. See more..

  15. 4.5 Ko Bulon Le (68 reviews)
    - Paradise
    Ko Bulon Le image
    We spend three months every year on Bulon, and have done for the past seven years. We have visited most of the Andaman Islands and feel that this is the best. Very good accommodation, beautiful beach, excellent fresh food, very reasonably priced. Very welcoming smiley people. If you want discos, night life and fast food - no for you. See more..
  16. 4.5 Phu Pha Phet Caves (27 reviews)
    - Cool cave
    Monday: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM Caverns & Caves
    Phu Pha Phet Caves image
    A short 10 minutes steep stair climb will lead you to the cave entrance. There you’ll find 2 paths, one via a small hole where you have to crawl thru a short 1-2 meter path after which you can stand up and explore the cave inside (which is huge).. the other path via the bigger hole I didn’t go thru so not sure where that leads to (presumably they should lead to the same path). We paid a THB200 entrance fee which include the entrance to this cave as well as the nearby Wang Sai Thong Waterfall. There was a friendly guide that led us into the cave and provided a briefing on the cave... There’s 2 path that can be taken.. a shorter 30 minutes short loop tour or a longer 90 minutes tour. The guide will take you there accordingly. You can either bring your own flashlight or rent one before climbing the stairs. See more..
  17. 4.5 Wang Sai Thong Waterfall (25 reviews)
    - Therapeutic Waterfall
    Wang Sai Thong Waterfall image
    Very nice little cascading limestone waterfall... if you stand directly underneath the waterfall, while it may a bit painful at times, it’s also most therapeutic... cools and calms you down Paid a THB200 fee that includes entrance to this waterfall and the Phu Pha Phet caves. See more..
  18. 4.5 Corner Bar (19 reviews)
    Monday: 3:00 PM - 2:00 AM Spent 2-3 hours Bars & Clubs
    Corner Bar image
    Great bar, for a cocktail before dinner. Long Island T really packs a punch , this bar really knows how to knock up a cocktail, very professional with a lovey ambience, Will proberly go here-now most nights as we did last year. See more..
  19. 4.5 Khai Island (Tarutao) (15 reviews)

    Khai Island (Tarutao) image
    เป็นอีกหนึ่งเกาะในดวงใจ ชอบมาก ปลื้มมาก น้ำใสมาก บรรยากาศดีมาก เสียดายที่ได้แวะชมแค่15นาที เป็นเกาะที่อยู่ระหว่างทางไปเกาะหลีเป๊ะ แนะนำให้แวะชม See more..
  20. 4.5 Mu Ko Phetra National Park (13 reviews)
    - Great view of the sea with a bit of walking
    Spent More than 3 hours National Parks
    Mu Ko Phetra National Park image
    This place is a gem. If you are in PakBara do make a visit to this area. This a national park for the area. There is an entrance fee for tourists at 200baht per person and 30baht per car. The facilities such as toilets, shops and ample parking space is available at the entrance of the park. I would recommend to go in the morning as it could get hot at noon and afternoon. The place closes about 5pm. The main attraction to this place the 'boardwalk' around the cliff. It gives you the opportunity to get close up view of the sea and the rocks on land. The boardwalk is now made of concrete and is very sturdy. Plenty of opportunity for pictures. This place is also the place to take boat to other lesser known islands around Langu district. English is a bit limited around here. See more..
  21. 4.5 Koh Kai Rock Cave (12 reviews)
    - Wrong pictures being uploaded
    Points of Interest & Landmarks
    Koh Kai Rock Cave image
    This is just a small island in the middle of the way from Pak bara pier to Koh Lipe. The speedboat to Koh Lipe will stop over Tarutao Island for National Park Pass purchase and then stop over at Koh Kai for the rock cave sight seeing. In fact this island has nothing unusual and not even a popular spot for Koh Lipe visitors. Might be for daily tour of Tarutao. The pictures being uploaded were all from Koh Hin Ngam which is famous for the marble like stones. See more..
  22. 4.5 Bulow Beach (8 reviews)
    - One of my fav beach, go there everyday
    Spent 2-3 hours Beaches
    Bulow Beach image
    Lovely beach, specially for snorquel, sunset, sunrise and spend a great time by the beach, all in one. I love to spend time at the Beach Bar Zodiac, good music and great people and can also enjoy the sunset from there. When is low tide in thr middle of thesea appear a sand bank that is really great for taking pics or enjoy a swimming or snorkeling there. See more..
  23. 4.0 Pattaya Beach (908 reviews)
    - Powdery white sand beach
    Pattaya Beach image
    This is one of the best stretch of beach in Koh Lipe. But the busiest side as well as that's the main port of call where most tourists land, a make shift immigration that takes hours to clear 20-30 pax on arrival froM Langkawi. The shores are lined with long tail boats, zipping in and out, making it hard to enjoy the clear waters. There's a small section for snorkelling, during the hightide there's plenty to see lien an aquarium. We spotted seahorses, parrot fish, sea slugs, and many more. At night the beach comes alive with different restaurants playing their own music, the lights, fire dancers etc quite read to have a drink and people watch along the beach. See more..
  24. 4.0 Sunset Beach (693 reviews)
    - Beautiful for snorkeling
    Sunset Beach image
    I stayed at the Bay View Sunset resort which I can't recommend, but it is located right in front of this wonderful beach, the best for snorkeling. You can see many species and lots of coral, the water is very visible and mild temperature, the sand is half white and half black on this side of the island. Many crustaceans live among the rubbish and the fallen leaves of the mangroves. I loved snorkeling, I spent many hours in the water watching the marine life of rare beauty, swimming a lot and picking up rubbish from the sea...I filled up rubbish bags and 100lt that I would ask the restaurant of the resort, sometimes I even forced the young people who worked there to help me, minimum to carry the heavy bags of rubbish. See more..
  25. 4.0 Pakbara Pier (68 reviews)
    - Under The Tree coffee shop...great coffee at local prices
    Pakbara Pier image
    Avoid the tourist crowds while waiting for your boat or bus and have delicious cheap coffee or iced frappe at friendly Aisha's coffee kiosk in the shade of flowers and trees. Our coffee and iced drinks were delicious and watch the local world go by sitting in the shade. Stroll past 7/11, cross the road and keep walking 200 metres See more..
  26. 4.0 The Happy Vibe Bar (36 reviews)
    - Low season and so relaxed ..sunbeds are great
    Spent 2-3 hours Bars & Clubs
    The Happy Vibe Bar image
    Crowd was sparse, Hardly anyone jostling for tables and sunbeds. I love the simplicity of this place where i can buy a drink fr the bar counter and order food from the kitchen that behind( belongs to salisa hotel?) . Some cute dogs will roam around the area below the tables and on the sand. They are harmless. There is cat who is rather pesistent when the food came! It will climb on the table to get your food! But it is harmless. It wil go away if you shoo it off. The stretch of beach infront of the bar is very clear and clean. I like that the sunbeds with the table does not cost extra- pay for drink or food and get to use it.unlike some other chichi clubs that expect the patrons to book in advance with minumum spend See more..
  27. 4.0 Koh Hin Ngam (34 reviews)
    - Very Nice Dark-Grey Stones
    Spent 1-2 hours Islands
    Koh Hin Ngam image
    Koh Hin Ngam is not about white sandy beaches, it is made of dark-grey stones that wash ashore after being polished by untold time in the deep – some are precisely oval discs while others bear intricate spirals of nature’s design – note that you are not allowed to pocket a stone or two as souvenir. See more..
  28. 4.0 Koh Lipe Walking Street (29 reviews)
    - Fabulous place!
    Spent 2-3 hours Flea & Street Markets
    Koh Lipe Walking Street image
    I absolutely love Koh Lipe and will be sad to leave. Ferry drop off on Pattaya beach, it’s only footsteps along the sand are you’re on Walking Street, more or less takes you from one side of the island to the other. Everything you need is on hand, the people are so friendly, prices fair, massages plentiful and reasonably priced. Was a bit worried after Covid that it might be too quiet, but most things open and a lovely atmosphere. Highly recommended. Wander off Walking Street and it’s beautiful, parts reminded me of a Disney film set, stunning! Easy to book ferry for onward travel. See more..
  29. 4.0 Maya Bar (25 reviews)
    - Hippie place
    Bars & Clubs
    Maya Bar image
    Place is very attractive. Chilled people hanging out inside a very inviting place. Price is decent and staff are always smiling. Defo coming back See more..
  30. 4.0 Bundhaya Resort Spa (20 reviews)
    - Wonderful massage
    Bundhaya Resort Spa image
    This is the only massage during my trip to Lipe. Had no expectation but it turned out very good. Thai deep tissue massage by the sea for 1.5 hrs really relaxed my muscles after 2 days of snorkeling. Strongly recommended at reasonable price of Bt500. Nang was my masseur. See more..
