We’re staying on long beach on Phi Phi island. It’s absolutely beautiful here, a quiet away from the town a couple of km away. There is pretty good off-beach snorkeling. Exceptional in fact, because they have some resident black-tip reef sharks – we found them this morning! A mother and a baby.. At one point the mother came within 2-3m of us.. A really great experience (and not at all scary, they are only 1-1.2m long and very timid). Photos to follow when we have a good internet connection.
We’re loving Phi Phi but we need to move on if we’re going to fit in a liveaboard trip to the similan islands.
