Monkey Beach Beach - Monkey Paradise on Phi Phi Don

Once a cozy and awesome place on Phi PhiDon, Monkey Beach has now become a beach for walking a mass tourist. You yourself know that any bounty beach can be spoiled if you unload on it about thirty boats of noisy people.

Azure Sea close the side of the boat, the horizonlined with silhouettes of catamarans and yachts, on the shore not overflowed among the colorful scarves and swimsuits, and now you already understand that a trip to a heavenly place turns into a fucking booth.

Maya Bay suffers from the same problem - too many people. So the only thing you can do for yourself is to sail to Monkey Beach before the afternoon tourist wave, or after it.

Beach description

Wild beach with wild monkeys. Monkey Beach Beach faces north, has an incomplete three hundred meters length and width of the sandy strip from zero (at high tide) to 30 meters (at low tide). Along the edges, it is separated from the rest of the island by high mountains with rocky, steep shores, so you can only get on Monkey Beach by sea.

The distance from Lo Dalam is insignificant,something about a kilometer away, so people easily rent kayaks and get 15-20 minutes. For the lazy, there is an option with a taxi, but there already begins bargaining around the time spent on the beach and the cost of the trip, an average of 400 baht for 2 hours. But it's worth it: ideally fine light sand, which dries out in the sun becomes almost white.

Sunset, depth and waves

The shore is shallow and goes under the water under a smallslope about a hundred meters. The first 30 will consist of pure sand, walking on which gives almost erotic pleasure, but then stones and fragments of the reef begin, which can be clearly seen at low tide.

The beach is quite cupable, with high water youYou can go to the chest on the sea and never step on a stone. With the waves, the situation is the same as in the average hospital: they are in the wind, and in calm weather there is an ideal surface of the water and tropical classic views (of course, if you did not sail to the island as part of the tour at rush hour.)

Sun beds and shade

The beach is completely wild, on an isolated stretch of Phi Phi Don island, so there is no talk of any comforts here - no umbrellas, no deck chairs, no bars. From the staff - only local macaques.

Take along beach mats and enjoy the rich vegetation of Monkey Beach, which, due to its geographical position, gives a lot of natural shade at any time of the day.

Although according to my observations, passing tourists are not herethey linger for a long time, and independent kayakers absolutely calmly manage without extra furniture and sunbathe right on the sand. If they are allowed to macaques.

The infrastructure of Monkey Beach Beach are posters withwarnings. They are told not to feed the monkeys and in principle be wary of them - whatever one may say, but these are wild animals and they can bite you. Monkeys are also the only local attraction that can both amuse and cripple the tourist.

I especially recommend not relaxing your parents withchildren. The little ones do not know that they do not need to show their teeth to the macaques (a sign of aggression) and, moreover, should not try to stroke them or not give what they take. Cases of bites continue to float regularly, and this is not just painful, but also troublesome - nobody canceled injections for rabies.

Houses and hotels on the beach

There are no homes for rent and hotels on Monkey Beach. In this place it is physically impossible to put even a frail hut - a strip of sand ends with a heap of rock that crumbled from a steep stone slope encircling the entire bay.

Among the stones and on the rocks themselves grow deciduouscrooked trees that only local monkeys can move. Moreover, at high tide, almost the entire beach is hidden by the sea, so it’s not possible to even put a temporary shelter on the beach itself.

This is a truly wild place, though with only 16hours until 10 am, while there are no tourists. By the way, monkeys can not go to the beach in anticipation of boats - they already know that food comes in noisy boats.

How to find the beach

For a start, see its location on the map.Google and mark yourself on a smartphone, but I don’t think that independent people need to be told about navigators. But if you are going to go there as part of an excursion, then in any travel agency or directly to the boatman, tell two words: "semolina beach".

After that add “how mache” and start bargaining,only without fanaticism. 350-400 baht is quite an adequate price for two or three hours of work of the boatman, who will bring you to Monkey Beach, where he will wait and return back to the isthmus of Phi Phi Don.

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.
