Koh Lipe on the National Geographic Magazine

Recently we had an article on the National geographic Magazine, rating Koh Lipe as the best trip of the world for 2012.  That’s what they said:

“The Perfect Beach

Thailand‘s sun-drenched jewel in the South Andaman Sea, Koh Lipe has recently risen to the top of intrepid beach lovers’ A-list of island paradises. Considered an alternative to the overexploited Koh Phi Phi (which gained fame as the setting for the film The Beach), Koh Lipe is accessible only by boat, with departure ports that include Krabi and the nearby Malaysian island of Langkawi.

Crystal waters and pristine reefs surround the island. Up to 25 percent of the world’s tropical fish species swim in the protected waters around Koh Lipe (the island is in Tarutao National Marine Park). Pattaya Beach may be the island’s most developed tourist spot, but head to quieter Sunrise Beach, where a now settled community of “sea gypsies,” the Chao Lei, live and fish. Take in the view from Castaway Resort’s “chill-out deck,” above.”

Koh Lipe is definitely on the best places in the world if you are looking for a chilled environment, amazing diving while, most of the time, having the dive site for yourself.
