Monkey Beach is one of the main attractions at Phi Phi Island and is a popular tourist attraction. The beach is located towards the north-west of Loh Dalam Bay and can be reached by kayaking or by walking. The beach gets its name from the colonies of monkeys that reside around the beach area who interact with the the tourists and travellers at the beach. Travellers may have to keep in mind that the monkeys can be bold and aggressive at times and it is best to avoid them and not carry any food items with you at the beach. The beach area itself is stunning, with powdery white sand shores and glittery blue waters, offering spectacular views. The beach is particularly beautiful during sunset when the sky turns into dazzling shades of crimson.
