Forever the beach dancefloor of the moment...
One of the largest operators on the island, churning out dive certifications by the boatload...
Hin Taak Climbing Area is a short long-tail boat ride around the bay. There are good limestone cliffs to climb on Ko Phi-Phi, and the views from the tops are spectacular...
Cheap, tasty and spicy. Here’s some real-deal Thai food served in heaping portions. It has your basil and chilli, all the curries and đôm yam, too. They're so popular they decided to open a second cafe a block away.
This long-standing favourite still cranks out some of Phi-Phi’s best pizzas as well as Western and Thai fare. It's packed so frequently that they recently opened a second branch closer to the dock in Ton Sai village.
A sportsbar as good for TV football as it is for people-watching and Western comfort food. The burgers and steaks work, and the appetisers, from yummy buffalo wings to potato skins, will satisfy most pint swillers.
The perfect add-on to any Thailand adventure, this four-day sailing trip allows you to escape the crowds, tucking into hidden bays and pristine beaches on Thailand's western coast...
The latest offering from the Cosmic family, this atmospheric room, tucked down a narrow soi, feels like a grotto, and is known for pasta, pizza, fajitas and burritos. They reportedly do a nice moussaka here too.
You haven’t experienced Phi-Phi’s nightlife until you’ve watched tourists (men and women) beat the crap out of each other in this rowdy bar’s Thai boxing ring. Both contestants get a free bucket to ease the pain.
Thai–Euro fusion set in a charming wooden house just off the main pier. It serves French and Aussie wines, and you can get your duck wok-fried with basil or oven-roasted and caramelised with mango.
In the beating heart of Tonsai Village, this classy cafe has amazing coffee drinks and stacks of cheap reading. Good luck finding a seat – the free wi-fi attracts email-aholics from all over the island.
Thai-food fans can take cooking courses here in the Tourist Village. You’ll learn to make some of the excellent dishes that are served in the restaurant and go home with a great cookbook.
A bright shack-like place that’s always packed with happy travellers chowing terrific, not-too-spicy Thai food. It has all the usuals and an ice raft of fresh catch at supper.
Focuses on community involvement and beach clean-ups (its latest cleared up 700 tonnes of rubbish) and is the only shop to offer dives from a long-tail.
There are good limestone cliffs to climb on Ko Phi-Phi, and the views from the tops are spectacular. There are at least six good climbing shops on the island.
They do crepes and salads, but we love this intimate Moroccan-themed cafe for its coffee, tea and fresh-pressed juices.
