Nui Beach on Phi Phi is a pretty and clean beach, on which is cool even to swim at low tide, only to get difficult: walk through the cliffs or sail by boat. Is there some more brave comrades who are ready to row here on a rolling kayak from Phi Phi Town itself, but I didn’t decide on that.
When I was at the very Nui Beach, when I was brought on several boating a group of people snoring. Considering the number of stones in the water and all sorts of corals, this is also in the model itself rather a good place for snorke than for a beach holiday. Walking here is not very good idea, better a couple of times for a vacation to get to a taxi-boat.

Sealing beach and wild recreation. Like all miniature beautiful things, the beach Nui on Phi Phi Don delivers special the pleasure of visiting. Piglet of light yellow sand, 60 meters length and 30 meters wide, enclosed in a semicircular bay with high cliffs and dense jungle vegetation – downright cinematically delightful place that in real life should not exist.
But there was a spoonful of tar – tourists. Nui Beach – quite a famous place on Phi Phi Don, so boatmen landings of tourists are planted during daylight hours, leaving lovers of silence and authenticity only morning and evening hours.
Entry, depth and waves
The beach is very shallow, flat, despite the tall rocks, under which is located Nui Beach. Somewhere up to a hundred meters under water Remains relatively clean surface, without stones and corals, and then begins the coral reef, with all the consequences.
The depth at high tide is probably ten to ten meters from the shore, and at low tide the water goes to 130-150 meters. Is not may not affect the attractiveness of Nui Beach, so at low tide it is not a heavenly place at all.
Waves are extremely rare, due to geographical location of the bay, although in the off-season swimming here is not at all interesting.
Sun beds and shade
It’s a wild beach with nothing but sand, rocks and trees. Nui Beach faces west, so until about noon along the green and on the edges of the beach there is still a shadow, but then the sun rises in the zenith, and you can not get away from him.
People come with their mats and towels or just located on the sand of the savages. Sunbed rental is not here provided for.
Nui Beach, Phi Phi Don Island
What could be the infrastructure of the beach 60×30 meters? Boat message, and a makeshift toilet in the jungle behind the beach. Here is and the entire infrastructure. Of the sights – quite large grotto on the right end of Nui Beach, and a rich coral reef (by local standards).
People come here with flippers and snorkeling masks – under water You can see and take a lot of interesting things. It should be noted that my opinion, and the opinion of many users of Runet, Phi Phi Island are in the top 10 best places for snorkeling in Thailand.
Houses and hotels on the beach
There is no housing on the beach. Nearest buildings, where you can on the ground to get to Nui Beach, located on the beaches of Lo Lana (about 250 meters in a straight line) and Lo Ba Kao (almost a kilometer in a straight line). Need to to be frank: I’m not sure about the walking availability of these two beaches from the side of Nui Beach.
I myself personally did not move there by land, and scant information in Runet speaks more about the theoretical possibility of passing through jungle, rather than having a beaten track. No photos or reports about trekking to Nui Beach on the net I did not find, so in comments waiting for your feedback if you have such experience.
