Drool-worthy beaches: Bamboo Island

Drool-worthy beaches: Bamboo Island

For Travel Talk on Twitter, they asked to people to Tweet their most drool-worthy beach shot. I chose this shot of Bamboo Island in Thailand. It wasn’t my favorite beach in the world but definitely one of the most iconic shots I think I took of the Andaman Coast.

I visited here on Easter in 2011 on Blue Wind’s fish tail boat tour of Ko Phi Phi. I found the tour at my hostel. For 400TB we visited Pileh Bay, Monkey Beach, Bamboo Island, Viking Bay and Maya Bay, which is where “The Beach” with Leonardo DiCaprio was filmed. We left around 9 a.m. and returned just after sunset which we watched from our long tail boat.

Not a bad way to spend Easter Sunday, hey?

    Beautiful shot! But I have to admit, when I saw “Bamboo Island” I thought it was going to be Bamboo Island in Cambodia. That was my all-time favorite beach!

    Nice shot, we didn’t quite make it to Bamboo Island but found a ton of these long boats and some beautiful beaches as well as some fricken cool elephants, check out our story at –
