Moo Dee Bay ('Loh Moo Dee' in Thai) is best known for its 300-metre-long white sand beach bordered by emerald waters. Situated on the east coast of Koh Phi Phi Don, it's an excellent escape from the crowd (at least until lunchtime). You can reach Moo Dee Beach on foot from Tonsai East along a 1-km-long path starting behind Bayview Resort, and from the path starting at the bottom of Phi Phi Viewpoint. 

A less tiring way to get there is by hiring long-tail boat near Tonsai Pier, which will take you to Moo Dee Bay in about 15 minutes. The fee depends on how well you can bargain.

Highlights of Moo Dee Bay in Phi Phi

Moo Dee Beach is really a cool spot that's very quiet and relaxing in the morning. It's often visited by those on day trips from Phuket and Krabi, which can perturb its peacefulness in the afternoon until about 3.30pm. The beach offers pleasant snorkelling opportunities, mostly at both ends of the bay. 

A beach shack sells food and drinks – note prices can be very steep, so it's best to bring your own bottle and snacks.
