Phi Phi islands are a group of six islands. The two main islands are Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. The larger and inhabited Phi Phi Don attracts hundreds of visitors to stay on its lovely shores while the smaller uninhabited Phi Phi Leh hosts stunningly beautiful bays and beaches, including the world-famous Maya Bay.

Underwater a remarkable variety of dive sites concentrated in a small area, which include vertical walls plunged from the surface over 25 meters, as well as caves, overhangs, swim-throughs in the soft limestone rocks and beautiful deep pinnacles.
