How to Get to Koh Lipe

Koh Lipe is a small island in the Andaman Sea (the Phuket side of Thailand) in the South near the Thai-Malay border. Koh Lipe is part of the Tarutao National Marine Park, Thailands largest marine park.

Getting To Koh Lipe
Koh Lipe is 60km from the nearest Thai port, Pak Bara, and 40km from Langkawi.. The easiest way to get to Koh Lipe is from either Pak Bara or Langkawi, but during the high season these are not the only ways to get here. The high season is from early November to late April and there are speedboats and ferries connecting Koh Lipe with all the islands and areas up and down the coast including Koh Lanta, Krabi, Koh Phi Phi and Phuket.

During the low season, from May to the end of October, the only direct boats to Koh Lipe are from Pak Bara. To get to Koh Lipe from Langkawi you can travel via Satun to Pak Bara and catch a speed boat to Koh Lipe.

The journey between Pak Bara and Koh Lipe takes about 90 minutes direct, but during the season some boats stop at Tarutao or other islands along the way making for a longer journey. Make sure you take some bottled water with you.

If you are outside Thailand you can either fly to Bangkok, Langkawi, Hat Yai, Krabi or Phuket.

From Bangkok
From Bangkok fly to Hat Yai. From Hat Yai travel to Pak Bara, the journey by taxi takes about 2 hours  When booking a flight make sure you leave enough time to catch the ferry or the speedboat. Once at Pak Bara you are nearly there, take a boat to Koh Lipe (travel time approximately 75 minutes)

If you dont want to fly then the other options are train or long distance bus to Hat Yai.

From Phuket
If you fly into Phuket then during the high season you can travel down by Tigerline ferry or by speedboat to Koh Lipe. The coastal road in this area has got some great scenery so you can travel by bus or taxi to Pak Bara too and then catch the speedboat to Koh Lipe.

From Langkawi
Once you’ve made it to Langkawi you are only a 20 minute taxi ride to the pier and just a short 2 hour ferryboat ride to Koh Lipe. During the high season this route can get very busy and you should book your tickets in advance and remember to confirm your return ticket too. Be aware that in low season there is no immigration on Koh Lipe and you cannot travel directly from Langkawi Koh Lipe.

From Hat Yai
From Hat Yai it takes about 2 hours by minibus transfer or taxi to the port Pak Bara. We can book the minibus or a taxi and speedboat for you.

Arriving to Koh Lipe
Once you arrive in Koh Lipe the speedboat or ferry will stop offshore outside the coral reef. You will either disembark the boat directly into local Thai longtail taxi boats, or onto a floating pontoon and then transfer to the local longtail taxi boats. The boats will take you to the beach for 50 Baht per person. From here you can either walk to your hotel or take a motorbike taxi also for a flat fee of just 50baht per person.
