Koh Phi Phi Leh

Lisa was a bit more than keen to visit Maya Bay (aka ‘The Beach’) on Koh Phi Phi Leh. Admittedly the island is stunningly beautiful and the rear access though a small hole in the rock is quite exciting, but there were just a bit too many other tourists on the beach itself.  The boat stopped at Viking Cave where the nests of the Black-nest Swiftlets are harvested for the Chinese soup market. As the boat continued to circle the island we observed Greater Coucal, Blue Rock Thrush, Black-naped Tern, White-bellied Sea-Eagle, Pied Imperial Pigeon, Bridled Tern, Brahminy Kite and Pacific Reef Egret.Towards dusk small groups of up to five Lesser and Christmas Island Frigatebirds passed over.

Surin Beach Hotel said...

Thank you nice article. I am someone who really love phuket. Last month I’ve been to Surin Beach and like this place very much because this beach is quiet, white beaches and crystal clear waters. Surin Bay Inn is the great accommodation, i stay here. It’s just like a happy family, everyone there is so nice and hospital.
I am sure, i will come back. SEE YOU PHUKET
