Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Not very far from the centre of Koh Phi Phi Island is a beach in the north-east which is family-friendly but also exclusive. It is mainly the guests of the large, exclusive hotel complex which dominates the scenery at the rear of the beach who come to the beach in the bay of Loh Bagao. The palm-tree lined beach is well-kept and very clean. The water shimmers in turquoise-blue shades and the sand is fine and white. Even if you are not staying in one of the hotels, you can still spend a fantastic day at the beach here. Do not forget to bring your snorkelling equipment with you to enjoy the underwater world at Loh Bagao.

Loh Bagao Bay - Palm-tree lined dream bay with turquoise-blue water

In the north-east of the island of Koh Phi Phi is the wonderful beach of Loh Bagao Bay. This fine, white sandy beach is nearly 600 metres long and the water in the bay here shimmers in a lovely turquoise-blue colour. The palm-tree lined beach is surrounded on both sides by green hills. The whole of the rear of the beach is dominated by a 4/5-star hotel complex which makes sure itself that the beach is very clean and well-kept. The hotel would like to claim the beach for its own exclusive use, which does at least have the advantage that large travel groups do not come to this bay. However, do not be put off by the “Private” signs, as Loh Bagao beach is open to the public, even if you are not allowed on the hotel grounds.

The bay of Bagao is sometimes also known as Loh Ba Gao, or simply Ba Kao, and is best reached by water-taxi. The hiking paths here are very physically demanding, although the views along the way are worth the effort. As there is only one public restaurant at the beach and this only opens in the evenings, you should bring your own food and drink with you, unless you are staying in the exclusive hotel complex with access to its restaurants and bars. Another alternative is to walk for about 10 minutes inland where you will find several restaurants and bars which are open during the day and which are cheaper.

When you come to Loh Bagao Bay you should bring your snorkelling equipment with you, as in the large, shallow bay there is much to be seen under the water. One side of the beach ends at the mouth of a canal and if you swim though this, you will find another little beach area on the other side. Here you are more likely to be able to enjoy tranquility and privacy, but it is also essential to take care here, as this is one of the routes of the motorised long-tail boats.
