Koh Lipe, Thailand

I came back from my island breakaway with my sister and friend last week, feeling so relaxed and rejuvenated. We went to this beautiful island called Koh Lipe. Koh Lipe is small island in the Southern part of the Thai Andaman Sea.

Koh Lipe is part of the Tarutao National Marine Park and is directly south of the larger islands Ko Adang and Ko Rawi and about 50km from the island of Tarutao. It was settled by a band of sea gypsies originally from Malaysia, known as the 'Chao Lei' people or also known as Urak Lawoi. This island has four main beaches: Sunset beach, Sunrise beach, Karma Beach and Pattaya beach. Accommodation from grass huts to air-conditioned bungalows can be found on these beaches. It is possible to walk around the entire island in little over an hour.
