|Sunrise on Sunrise Beach, Koh Lipe|
Beaches on Koh Lipe: There are 3 main beaches, Pattaya Beach, which is where you arrive and the busiest, Sunrise Beach, quiet but close to all amenities and Sunset Beach, very tranquil and a bit further away from shops and restaurants.
Transport on Koh Lipe: Ahhh there isn`t really any.. just a few Mopeds around. We saw 1 Mini Cooper, a couple of Golf Buggies and 1 shop where you could hire Bicycles. The Island is so small, you can walk everywhere within 15 minutes and when you arrive, you can change onto Longtail Boats which take you to the other beach resorts, price was 50TB. When out and about at night, remember to bring a torch light.
What to do on Koh Lipe: Snorkelling, either off the beach or with an organised trip, Kayak, boat trip to nearby Islands, relaxing, eating good food, reading, getting a sun tan and if you are adventures go for a scuba dive course. They (5 of which we know) all offer a free dive, to check out whether you like it. The PADI course for example lasting 3 days, cost 12000TB (with book). Party in the evenings on Pattaya Beach, lots of Bars and Restaurants to be found there. Although out of season, (mid December to January is high season) the Island has a very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere.
