Sadly this stretch of beach was just covered in litter! The monkeys are not friendly and seem to be quite aggressive. This is not a beach that should be at the top of your list.

Just as advertised there are monkeys here. They are cute and they will eat your food (don’t feed them). Good place to snorkel and the white sand is perfect to lay out on. 10/10 would beach again.

Beautiful beach. A great spot for snorkeling. Just take a kayak and go 15 min until the beach. Many monkeys!

It was a nice and funny visit, you should go and see them once. Should be on your travel list if you are ever on Phi Phi.

There are a few beaches you can go to if you want to see monkeys on this island (Well you can see them anywhere in the woods as well especially in the morning). To get to the monkey beaches you can hire a kayak/long tail...More

The monkeys here wait to eat food from tourists. It's barely close to the real thing now, sad actually. Monkeys all prey on tourists to provide them cans of coke and processed foods. Many of the tourists provoke the monkeys, putting other tourists' lives in...More
