17 miles from Ao Nang, Krabi
Not the most picturesque bay on Phi Phi, but a handy anchorage in the northeast monsoon season for late arrivals from Krabi. Pick up one of the seven moorings and enjoy the best snorkelling in Phi Phi right off your stern – or anchor further out in 10 metres on sand.
Just to the west is beautiful but shallow Ao Nui, also accessed on land by a track over the ridge spine. Ao Nui has enough room for a single yacht just south of the islet off the fringing reef in 3 metres.
There’s a well-worn footpath ashore that leads to the main track along the backbone of Phi Phi Don. South leads to the main town in Ton Sai Bay and north is a short stroll to the Holiday Inn and Zeavola resorts.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only.
