Beach Lo Lana on Phi Phi is a beach of one resort, consisting of bungalow of the houses. Rather, what remains of the once pretty resort, and now it’s just abandoned, overgrown green house. I assume that he suffered during the tsunami and the owners probably decided not to restore it.
And in general, I stole the suggestion that once upon a time Lana Bay looked much prettier and well-groomed. And now it is thoroughly abandoned place with heaps of garbage in the bushes. Garbage periodically clean – on the shore are black bags for him, but what frequency of cleaning is hard to say. In low season, during monsoon time, I think there is a garbage dump. Had a chance to see photos taken in the autumn, so here – on the beach just hard.

Terrible shallow water, you can sunbathe, swim – not very. Lo Lana Bay is a flat sandy square 460×460 meters, left and right cut off from the sea by tall cliffs. Behind the beach begins a small plain, which after 250 meters goes into flooded submerged sea water mangrove trees.
The beach is not crowded, despite the fact that often brought here people. Apparently rumors spread quickly and tourists do not hurry See local trash and stones.
The sand on the beach is of average scall, yellow, soft. Near the shore with grass it is almost pure, and closer to the sea it becomes larger and with a lot of impurities in the form of stones, corals and marine debris.
Entry, depth and waves
Despite seemingly shallow water, the water at Lana Beach does not go away at 200 meters from the shore, to the edge of the reef, but just become shallower. On Lana is not so pronounced ebbs and flows. I think with high water here you can even swim. Compared with neighboring Lo Ba Kao, when begins some intermediate stage between ebb and flow, then on Lo Ba Bao still need to wait for a high water, and on Lana you can safely splash in the sea.
By the way, at high tide the beach looks much nicer, it’s necessary just step aside from where the boats are parked. Generalizing – the tide is not so bad, and if you do not attach importance to the garbage and do not loop on srache – the beach is quite cupable.
Sun beds and shade
Due to the fact that the beach is de facto wild, the sun beds are not you will find even broken ones. I did not see the rental, but all the tourists that come here alone, usually use their bamboo rugs.
Shadows on the beach a lot, except for the right edge, where the territory shaved for development and there for a hundred meters there is not a single single tree. But all the other meters of Lana Beach are thick. vegetation and good shade.
Plus, this beach itself is facing north, and during the day there is always where to hide from the sun. Rocks at the edges of the beach stand at a distance from the water and do not give any shadow, they can not to count.
Lana Beach, Phi Phi Don Island
Once there was a resort infrastructure here, but now there is no nothing but a line of concrete posts that denote it territory. Samih houses with the beach is almost invisible, no buildings like a bar or restaurant on the beach left.
There is a small canopy for boatmen who are free here. feel and park along the entire shore without limits lay out their goods and fuel canisters. Next door to Beach Lo Lana there is a small beach Nui – kind landmark, where in theory you can get through jungle.
And east of Lo Lana there is a rather large beach with a hotel infrastructure – Lo Ba Bao. Online recommendations sometimes come across Snork from the shore near Lo Lana, they say – high-quality snork. But I I did not check it personally, so I’ll be happy for your comments.
Houses and hotels on the beach
Above, I have already outlined the situation with housing on the beach Lo Lana Bay. It is possible that better times will come for this place, but for now that this is not the most interesting beach, without infrastructure and hotels. AT principle, if you really like places like this, a wild beach with abandoned – that is a very real opportunity to settle on Neighborhood on Lo Ba Bao.
