We’ve been out canoeing a couple of times on Phi Phi island and it’s always so much fun. I have to tell you it’s hard work too though…I recommend a good partner in the back to help when you get tired haha. Anyway, pack your wetpack and bring some beer! you can rent a canoe pretty much anywhere on the beach and it’s cheap.
The closest place from the main beach on Phi Phi is Monkey Beach. It takes about 20 min here and then you’ll get to see some cheeky monkeys as well! Remember not to feed them! I know everyone does but it’s no good for the monkeys and they can get pretty aggressive if you’re unlucky. Also keep your belongings in a closed bag or in your steady hand, those monkeys are the best of thieves!
Don’t forget to bring some beer!
We felt like we had loads of energy this day so we kept going to the next beach from here, but the other way from the main beach, to the right. This was also a beautiful small beach without as many people.
We ended the day canoeing back home at sunset. It was a majestic and beautiful sunset, after a perfect day. I love it when you really get that orange sunset and this was one of the coolest ones I’ve seen!
Came back hungry and tired, and yes-we woke up with some seriously sore arms and back the next day. Totally worth it!
