Loh Ba Gao is on the east coast of Koh Phi Phi. This is a beautifully secluded beach, fringed with coconut palms and almost entirely cut off from the busy west coast scene. The luxury resorts in Loh Ba Gao are the finest on the entire island.
On the west coast of Koh Phi Phi, Ton Sai village has more than a thousand hotel rooms, while Loh Ba Gao barely has more than a hundred. This combined with the fact that the beach at Loh Ba Gao is exceptionally long means guests of local hotels can spend entire days on the beach without bumping into another person if they wish.
All of Koh Phi Phi is well-known for its snorkeling and scuba diving. The best coral reefs at Loh Ba Gao are in the southern quadrant of the bay, with most located a reasonable distance offshore. The seas are usually calm enough to safely swim, but it’s best to go with a boat to properly explore. A local dive center can arrange scuba certification and diving excursions.
Since the area is so secluded, the staff of hotels in Loh Ba Gao are happy to help with arranging activities. Hiking trails lead to the top of the cliffs that back the resorts where the view on a clear day is exceptional. Sea kayaking and chartered tours are also possible.
