Beautiful Loh Dalum Beach: The Sunbathing, Drinking and Party Beach on Ko Phi Phi

During the morning, The Loh Dalum Beach of Ko Phi Phi island is a pristine beach of white sands where tourists throng to find a place to sunbathe and take a swim in its emerald waters. In the afternoon, with low tide, the water recedes so much that swimming is not possible, but walking on the wider beach and finding crabs is a possibility. Some people prefer to just lie in the sun and read a book. Some crazy tourists like me, use this low tide as an opportunity to walk to the other side of the hills where the beautiful Monkey beach lies and then run back with the increasing tide waters.

But, come night, the beach transforms into a playground for parties with live bands playing, fire shows being performed and lots of other interesting activities taking place. It is also the place where the drinking crowd lands post sunset. Couples, large groups and families alike sit on the beach with their drinks and get ready for the shows to begin.

And as it gets closer to midnight, the true party begins. By this time most of the crowd is on a high and hence all inhibitions are let down. And the joy goes on till the sun comes out in the morning.

During the day, the other thing that one can do is walk up to the view point resort from where one can get a bird’s eye view of the lovely Loh Dalum bay. The entire place is great, but it can get crowded during the high season and tourists and locals alike are known to dirty the beach during the party nights.
