Koh Lipe Sunrise in Thailand Picture of the Week

Koh Lipe Sunrise in Thailand is my Picture of the Week. This beautiful island located at the Taruto National Park is one of Thailand's hidden gem. With no vehicles and basic infrastructure, Ko Lipe in Southern Thailand is one of the premier locations for Backpackers, Island Lovers, Scuba Divers and Sun Seekers. Having been here twice in one year during the off season and the peak season, I have to say that this is one of the most beautiful islands on the West Coast of Thailand.

For those interested in visiting this unique place, you may want to read up about Getting to Koh Lipe. It is crucial that you know what to expect at this island as it is unlike the other popular islands throughout Thailand. Boat schedules are limited and only available from certain areas. There are no ATMs on the island while everyone here moves around on foot. For photographers, land or underwater, there is abundance of choices to photograph here. By the way, I also took this unique picture about Koh Lipe Beach, Sun and Rain. Overall, if you are an avid island lover, this is one of the islands you must visit and best if you can visit the beach and catch the beautiful Koh Lipe Sunrise.

Koh Lipe is a part of the Tarutao National Marine Park and is a wonderful island. It consists of 3 beaches and Pattaya Beach is the most popular of all.

Lisa - Absolutely a must visit place when you travel to Thailand.

Grace - If you love the quietness, I would recommend Mountain Resort on the back end of the island. If you love the party lifestyle, then Pattaya or Sunrise Beach. Diving? Castaway Resort is really nice.

Kelly - Yes, please check on how to get there. You'd probably go via Pak Bara Town.

Chianti - Thank you so much. It is beautiful!

Fantastic island, really wonderful holiday. We recommend this place for anyone. I can't say enough about this up and coming bungalow. The location is great. The staff made us feel welcome. We loved our room, it's huge with a giant vaulted ceiling, a terrace, and big curtains. We have never stayed with an outdoor bathroom and I must say it takes some getting used to, but the rain shower is amazing after coming back from the beach. We were sunburned after kayaking and snorkeling the first day so we just ordered room service and watched borrowed movies in the room on the second day. We got to know owners Derrik and Sam a little on some evenings at the bar. We were able to learn their story and gain some unique insight about Lipe . Anyways since there isn't much to do in the evenings we went to bed so early. Leaving for us was kind of a sad experience because we just felt so comfortable. If you're going to visit koh Lipe, we truly recommend Mali resort. It's fun, relaxed, with nice people and good service. Koh Lipe is our favorite spot so far in Thailand.
