1.5 miles from Ton Sai Bay, Phi Phi Island
For a lunchtime dive or beach picnic, anchor in 12 metres close to the small sandy beach fringed with coral and nestled into a deep recess in the cliffs. A few hundred metres north, towards Ton Sai beach on the western edge, is a small palm-fringed indentation with a white sand beach.
The locals now call it Monkey Beach. It used to be one of the best places in the world for a picnic, but now the beach is overrun with brazen wild monkeys that will steal your lunch. With the increase of day visitors it’s become its own tourist attraction and speedboats drop in at high tide to feed the mischievous troop ashore.
