Koh Lipe is one of the islands of the Tarutao Marine National Park. Initially, this island was predominatly settled by the Chao Ley, or the sea gypsies who live in small villages here. Tourism has increased in Koh Lipe since the 1990s, and hasn't seen a pause ever since. The vast reefs and gorgeous white sand beaches don't fail to attract anyone.
Koh Lipe is home to two of the finest beaches of Thailand, Hat Sunrise and Hat Pattaya. They are pristine white powdery sand beaches with an expansive coral reef. With increasing visitors since 1990s, this place is prone to some garbage damage, but it's not that big a problem. The food and accomodation scene is extremely flexible, comfortable and cheap. The nightlife is great and known to be more mature than the neighbouring Koh Phi Phi. According to officials, each adult is supposed to pay 200 Baht to go anywhere in the Tarutao Park. This has been done to get a push for development. Koh Lipe is a well developed beautiful island with a great range of activities like diving and snorkelling to do.
