Where I stayed
After our arrival at the port of Ton Sai, which is a busy gateway town to the rest of the island, about 10 of us boarded a long tail boat to take us to our 'resort'. Fifteen minutes later we arrived - and this is where it got interesting.
I had booked a "natural" resort, and that meant that the basics of life were provided for
The beach however, did not disappoint. You could move your beach chair into or out of the sun, and you could go to the snorkel basket, find a mask and when you were waist-high in the water you saw fish. I saw blue fish, red fish, brown fish - all kinds. I like snorkeling so well, I signed up for a snorkeling trip to Bamboo Island the next day - it was great.
Here is me snorkeling (Think distracted Dory in Finding Nemo): Oh look there - it's a parrot fish! No, wait, it's a parrot fish family! Eating chunks of coral! OMg omg look! Over there - blue and yellow tangs
So I had a good time doing recreational activities at Phi Phi Relax Beach, but I have to tell you the best part of my stay there was meeting a Swedish family who befriended me, and started including me in their meals and beach lounging. Thank you so much to Louise, Ken, and Elin Lindehoff - it was really fun having someone to share my Phi Phi experience with. Happy travels! Diane
