Summary of the Beach Inspectors

The beach of Mosquito Island is on the very small, uninhabited island of the same name off the coast of Koh Phi Phi Don. The beach with its fine, white sand is completely surrounded by cliffs and is therefore in the shade for most of the day. Snorkelling in the clear, turquoise-blue water is great and from the beach you have a nice view of nearby Bamboo Island.

Mosquito Island - Fine, sandy, natural beach on uninhabited cliff island

The real name of Mosquito Island is Koh Yung. It is one of the six islands of Koh Phi Phi and is situated north of the large main island. You will find here a small beach with fine, white sand which is surrounded inland by dark cliffs covered in greenery. The beach is in the shade for most of the day, which can be a rather welcome change in the hot south of Thailand. Only in the morning is there any sunshine here.

The beach of Mosquito Island is great for swimming in the clear turquoise water, but you will need to watch out for the motorised boats, as there is no designated swimming area. Snorkelling is especially nice here and you also have a great view of neighbouring Bamboo Island. Divers mainly head for a spot on the other side of Mosquito Island.

Where there is shade and water, there are also mosquitos. Opinions differ as to whether the island got its name from the mosquitos or whether it refers to the size of the small island. In any case, you should make sure that you take insect repellent with you, as there are quite a few of these annoying little insects around depending on the season.

Most people only stay for a short time here and are part of a travel group covering several islands and beaches. You can also hire a long-tail boat as a water-taxi for a day or half a day and in this way head straight for Mosquito Island and enjoy it for a little longer.
