Because this is the place the ferries dock and the long tail boats too, its always busy. If you are a people watcher, this is a perfect place to see people from all nationalities as they arrive and leave Phi Phi Don.

This was the first place we saw when we reached Phi Phi island. As we were approaching it in the ferry, we were mesmerized by the view. The water is very clear and when we looked at the whole view with the mountains, sea, the boats, the greenery, we felt great to have come to this place.. away from hustle... More

Ton sai pier is really good place. Especially regarding the sea level you can walk along pier on the sands. There are many restaurant , boat tours, diving activities which all of them are organized by ton sai pier. Everyday you can see different pier. 1 day you can walk and lay down on golden sands and the next day... More

Great spot to sit in a seaside restaurant and have a drink/food. The views across the bay cluttered with longtail boats is very scenic, and water here is very clear and there are suitable spots for swimming. Great place to arrive on a lovely island.

Seeing it again after 26 years made me sad. Shopping malls built between Don Sai bay and Loh Dalum bay where just coconut palm trees used to be, one shop and restaurants next to each other where a few local places used to be.... Can't even see the beach because there are Longtail boats everywhere. Pizza, burgers, 7-eleven..... Still the... More

Found a spot on the west side, far end, away from all the boats. Clear water, warm and nice to swim or just chill with friends. Sand was white, soft and fine.

Gorgeous waters and views - but slowly being ruined by tourists - bottles, cigarettes and the Thais just don't know how to cope as more and more tourists arrive by over crowded ferries. Overlooked by restaurants and bars for most of the bay, you can get a view from anywhere. Take a day trip here from Krabi or Phuket -... More

The beach on the other side the water looked beautiful but when we went for a swim there were lots of suspicious... More
