Monkey Beach, Phi Phi Don, Thailand

Posted in Animals, General, Travel at 3:30 pm by Warren Williams

The following morning, left Railay Bay by ferry, to Ton Sai Bay, Phi Phi Don. I had booked in 2 nights at the Phi Phi Villa Resort feeling like a little splurge, after everything else had been relatively cheap.

A popular afternoon/evening excursion is the sunset cruise, departing at 3pm daily. It includes snorkelling, kayaking, seeing monkeys, a visit to Maya Bay (scenes from “The Beach” movie) on Phi Phi Le. Dinners, and drinks were included, so at 350 baht, (NZ$15) this was a bargain!

Monkey Beach, was the first destination. 2minutes from the pier. We dived into the deep water, and snorkelled up and over the shallow coral, onto the small golden sand beach. We were provided some fruit for feeding them, and watch the manic behaviour of them. One moment they’re timid, and a moment later they’ll go aggressive, especially around the young ones. The tour company also provided a waterproof bag for carrying everyones cameras to the shore…

    No need to cry now. Reminds me when you were a wee baby. Small and furry.
