    Soft sands and sea swimmingly good
    Booked through our hotel "The Tint" as part of an island hop experience. This was the ultimate trip, Bamboo Island feels and looks like it's situated in the Bahamas. it's so tranquil and stunning, soft white sands clear blue waters, hermit crabs and somewhere some bamboo??

    Can get crowded but very beautiful
    Amazing Island with a wonderful beach with white coral sand and clear water. Perfect for snorkling and there is a reef easily accessible from the beach. There are toilets, tables for eating your picknick lunch. There is also a small bar that sells refreshments. It can get crowded since many groups from speed boats and longtail boats comes here.

    I absolutely adored this place and would enthusiastically recommend it over Maya Bay!
    Bamboo Island wasn't on my radar until some fellow pool-goers at our hotel spontaneously invited us to join them on a trip there. With no concrete plans for the day, we thought, why not? It unexpectedly became the highlight of our entire journey. This destination is a true paradise, boasting the most mesmerizingly colored water I've ever laid eyes on. The tranquility and serenity here are unparalleled, and the beach is simply fantastic. Snorkeling proved to be an absolute delight, with an abundance of vibrant fish to observe.

    Impressive beach, worth paying a visit with a tour
    A very nice beach, always very crowded, but probably a little less then other ones in the area. When walking a little in the northern of the island, you get a nice beach with far less people, making it really enjoyable! Worth visiting with a tour.

    Great beach
    Stopped here for an hour on boat tour, speed catamaran. Gorgeous sands, beautiful water. Swimming was great here, snorkelling available off beach too.. Island is small, tour boats had it busy while we were there.. would be fantastic to hit at quieter times.. Great place to visit regardless!

    A Great Little Island in the Andaman Sea
    Bamboo Island was the best part of my tour of the Phi Phi islands. I realize the beach can be very crowded but if you swim about 100 meters offshore to the very edge of the swimming area, snorkeling is excellent. The island has food and restroom facilities. There is lots of sand and lots of shade if that's what you're looking for.

In our travel in Thailand we did some island hopping and Bamboo Island is by far the best looking when it comes to the combination of the natural & wild side of the island + beautiful sand + the best turquoise shades ever seen.
Loved it! Pictures don't do it justice!

This was the first place where we could touch the amazing white powder fine sand and turquoise mild warm sea. The only problem was the density of speed boats as they spat out the curious crowd.
Otherwise it was a fabulous experiment.

Beautiful water great swimming location, the weather was good but a little windy and the boats were having trouble on the beach (apparently December it is a bit choppy and windy)
