Maya Bay, Phi Phi Island
These islands had their central village washed away by the Tsunami, except a number of little beautiful resorts up the east coast that was left completely untouched. Tour boats  are running again and many bungalows have rebuilt and reopened. What makes this area unique is the amazing limestone cliffs that rise dramatically out of the sea resulting in exquisite beaches to relax. The island group lies 42 km from mainland Krabi and is only 1 hour away from Ao Nang Beach by speed boat. It is composed of 6 islands :Phi Phi Don, Phi Phi Ley, Bida Nork, Bida Nai, Mosquito Island and Bamboo Island.

The main village Ton Sai is on Phi Phi Don where all the activities is built on a sandy isthmus with a twin beach rises to less than 2 metres above sea level on both sides. The bay is towered with magnificent tall limestone ridges. The scenery from Viewpoint Hill, 314 metres above sea level captured the two amazing, crescent-shaped bays in all their glory. Phi Phi Islands offer the most exotic natural ambience to enjoy sunbathing, diving, photography, sightseeing and relaxing. There are essential banking facilities, including ATMs, money exchanges, convenience stores, souvenir shops, stalls serving local food as well as bars and restaurants. There is access to every grade of hotel, bungalow or guesthouse, but reservations are neccessary during busy periods.

Been here and what blogger discovered and experienced :

” Phi Phi island consists of two islands, Phi Phi Don, the larger one of the two with an abundance of fine beaches and accommodation to suit all needs. The more geographically dramatic, Phi Phi Ley, with its cliffs, natural caves and water-filled canyon offers the tourists exciting and outdoor pursuits. Both islands are in Krabi province and are part of Nopparat Thara Beach/Phi Phi National Marine Park, Just a short 42 kilometers from from Phuket, will transport you to the tropical paradise and famous islands of Phi Phi Island. With a Kodak moment with every view, it’s the ultimate tropical getaway in Thailand. Fine, white sandy beaches and breathtaking rock formations rising from the vivid turquoise waters that surround the islands will instantly confirm you’ve  arrived in paradise. Exploring Phi Phi Island couldn’t be more fun, with Scuba Diving , Snorkelling , Kayaking or Climbing being the most popular methods, when taking a break from the silky soft sands. Phi Phi Islands, located just 45 minutes by speedboat from Phuket, offer a great laid back tropical life style.  Soak up the sun, go beach hopping or simply enjoy the  great outdoors in some of the most beautiful scenery in Asia . Classic white sandy beaches, surrounded by impressive limestone cliffs and sunlit crystal clear water, Phi Phi actually consists of two islands, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Ley, so gorgeous it was used as a location for the Hollywood film, “The Beach” at Maya Bay. These two islands offer a wide range of very different atmospheres such as natural wildlife spots, archeological sites, a great coral reef, fishy lagoons, as well as all beaches. ”
