Our first stop was to Phi Phi Don Island at Monkey Beach. This is by far one of the most spectacular places I’ve been to. The water is this incredible light blue/green colour and it’s so clear it’s almost like looking through glass. When you step on the sand it’s so soft it sinks down and feels almost like silk. Families of monkeys live in the trees above this beach so they are regularly there, but we arrived at high tide and as a result there were no monkeys to be seen.
We picnicked for lunch on Bamboo Island and I was very happy to see my lunchbox appear from under the hull of the boat. I had a vegetable fried rice without the egg and a packet of chips (oops not very healthy), and some pineapple and watermelon.
