Koh Lipe is a small island paradise with a big heart in the Andaman Sea. Famous for it’s white sandy beaches, turquoise blue waters, laid back locals and not forgetting the walking street.
It really does have everything from tiny secluded coves, long party beaches, small family bars to incredible decorated reggae bars. You can party with the rest of them or escape to an island paradise.
Here are 10 reasons why we loved it so much:
1: Relax, relax, relax
2: Visit cosy cove at high tide to snorkel.
3: Watch the sun go down at Bennys Bar on Cozy Cove, whilst slipping a cocktail.
4: At low tide walk right from Cozy Cove along the beach to the white sand bar for a swim in the warm turquoise water.
5: Kayak off sunrise beach.
6: Grab a beer or two on the famous walking street and browse the many stalls.
7: Have dinner at the Barracuda restaurant, cheaper and better than most.
8: Late night drinks with the locals at Reggae Rocks bar.
9: Have a massage at one of the many parlours.
10: The residents care about their beautiful island and you should too by buying a Trash Hero reusable water bottle. You can also volunteer for the day by going out and collecting rubbish with Trash Hero.

You have just read our top 10 things that we did whilst on Koh Lipe. But as always there are many things that we didn’t get to do whilst on the island, with scuba diving being one of them (due to Ian having a bad ear). There are many diving centres where you can discovery dive or even take your Padi diving course and we hear that it is pretty unbelievable.
