Koh Phi Phi and Maya Bay

21.04.2014 - 24.04.2014

On April 20th we were brave enough to take a night boat from Koh Phangan to Koh Phi Phi (actually we had to take the night boat, then a bus to get from the East coast to the West coast and then another boat), even though we had heard it's not the most comfortable way to get to there (which is an understatement). This is what the night boat actually looks like on the inside. The mattresses were about 2cm thin, 40cm in width and about 1,50m in length.
 But in the end, it was all worth it. We arrived one day later, on the 21st, and the first thing we did was to go to the beach and do absolutely nothing. Once we were done doing so, we met a couple Germans from Bavaria who talked us into coming to Maya Bay with them. BEST DECISION EVER.
 The ride on the longboat to Maya Bay took about 30-45 minutes.

 The beach by Maya Bay (The movie "The Beach" beach!) is by far the most beautiful beach I have ever been to. The water is more turquoise in its color than any of our cameras could capture.

 After about 2 hours at the beach, our "longboat captain" took us to another place to snorkel. THERE WERE SO MANY CORAL REEFS AND FISH AND IT WAS THE BEST SNORKEL TOUR EVER!

Oh, and on the way we also got to see the Viking Cave from the outside. Some people actually live there.
 The trip ended with this beautiful sunset (that the camera couldn't really capture well).

Koh Phi Phi's main beach itself (NOT Maya Bay) is not so nice for swimming due to its extremely warm temperature and slimy ground, BUT the island itself definitely has its charm. Especially the night life on Koh Phi Phi was by far the best out of all islands we've been to (Koh Tao, Koh Phangan, Koh Lipe). If you're ever there you MUST go to Reggae Bar to see some Muay Thai fights while you have a drink or eat something. You could also volunteer to fight with some other tourists (which is a bad idea, since we saw a tourist break his shin while fighting....). Then there's Banana Bar that you should definitely check out. If you go to the very top table you'll have the best view over all of Phi Phi.
