Phi Phi Islands Dive Sites

Phi Phi Islands Dive Sites

Dive These Amazing Phi Phi Island Dive Sites. The Phi Phi Islands are made up of six different Islands with many different dive sites. Two islands to the north named Mosquito and Bamboo Islands. Given their location these islands are rarely dive or visited by the Phuket Scuba Diving day trip boats. The largest island in the group and the only island with inhabitants is Koh Phi Phi Don. Although there are some dive sites around this island. It is rarely dived as the dive site are considered not as good as others in the area.

The Second biggest island in the group is Koh Phi Phi Ley. There are no inhabitants on this island and it does provide some reasonable dive sites for avid scuba divers. There are two smaller islands to the south of the Phi Phi group which are considered the best dive sites in the area. These are Koh Bida Nai and Koh Bida Nok. Koh Bida Nok is considered the best day trip dive site in the region and it is rare that a day trip out of Phuket to Phi Phi would not visit this Koh Bida Nok.

Also considered a dive site on the Phi Phi day trip is a popular dive site called Hin Bida. This submerged pinnacle has been providing dives with some great shark dives of late and is becoming increasing popular for divers.
