Ko Lipe is located in southern Thailand. Its beaches are beautiful, the water warm, and the island cheap. In the last few years, it has become very developed and it’s not the sleepy little island it used to be but it’s still way less developed than many other destinations in Thailand. If you like to island travel ,Ko Lipe is a good choice for you!
Visit the National Park
Taking a day trip, or even a multi-day trip, around the islands is super fun and relaxing. There are various companies, all offering different trips and packages. Most of them offer great day trips with snorkeling, beach time, a beautiful sunset sail, and endless fruit, snacks, and drinks.
This beautiful island paradise is a great place for some light to medium hiking. The forest-seascape combination is beautiful and there is lots of wildlife on which to spy. The hike to Cha Doa cliff is great
Hit the bars
In a place like this, it’s hard to anything more than lay in a hammock, take daily naps, and drag your feet into a local bar. Everyone is so laid-back though, so take your time. Jack’s Jungle Bar and Karma Bar are the places to be.
Relax on the beach
The beaches here are the largest and most sought-after attraction. The sand here is unlike anywhere else and the sunsets are often amazing, especially during midspring through early summer. Pattaya Beach is the most well-known, however, there are also Sunrise Beach, Sunset Beach and Karma Beach to consider.
Go on the Ko Adang Excursion
Taking a boat over to this nearby island is a lot of fun. You get to sit back, throw down a drink or two, and enjoy the ocean scenery. The island itself is home to Pirate Falls and Chado Cliff—both of which are great, moderate hikes. Boat rides are usually around 200 THB.
You can rent sea kayaks from some of the dive shops. It will take a couple of hours to kayak around the island. Do play it smart and ask locals about the water conditions before heading out.
Spend time fishing
If you’re an avid fisher, this is a good place to do it because the fishing regulations here are lax. Even along the shore you have a chance of making a small catch, but for bigger fish, like sailfish and tuna, arrange for a boating trip.
Whether you’re a beginner or experienced sailor, the island can cater to your needs. Sign up for a sailing course, or simply enjoy a day trip out around the islands.
