7 miles from Ton Sai Bay, Phi Phi Island

KOH MAI PHAI (BAMBOO IS.). 7°48.565N, 98°48.058E

Pick up a mooring or anchor in 7-10 metres on a sandy patch off the southeast corner of the island. Take care making sure to drop your anchor in sand. This avoids damaging the coral and at the same time minimising the chances of fouling your ground tackle.

The small moorings are very close to the reef edge and are only suitable for speedboats and longtails that make the daily snorkelling pilgrimage from Phi Phi. There are Marine Park ranger speedboats collecting a 400 baht per person fee.

A small restaurant may be open during the day. Beware of your course when heading back to Phi Phi. Go well north or south of Hin Klang to avoid the dangerous reef.
