Koh Lipe Information
Trash Hero Project
It may not seem like a fun thing to do, I mean picking up trash on your holiday is probably not what you look up to during your vacation. But guess what? It’s actually fun, interesting and of course, it’s for a good cause. Koh Lipe is one of the cleanest islands in Thailand and it’s because of the efforts of the passionate travelers, organizations, and projects like Trash Hero. They lead a cleanup every Monday at 10 a.m of one of the islands nearby Koh Lipe. You don’t need to signup in advance and it’s free to join. Show up at the Walking Street entrance on Pattaya Beach and you will see the volunteers wearing yellow “Trash Hero” shirts.
At night this street comes alive when the fresh catch of the day is being grilled in seafood restaurants. The street is full of bars, shops, restaurants, massage, street food, guest houses, tour companies, and much more interesting things to do. It’s the ideal place in Koh Lipe to drink, eat and listen to music playing while the food is cooking and a beer in your hand. The main entrance is on Pattaya Beach and there is also a path from Sunset Beach that will lead you to the middle of the Walking Street.
Koh Lipe Viewpoint "Chado Cliff"
Hiking to the Koh Lipe Viewpoint on the Chado Cliff is one of the most popular things to do on the island. You can find a simple map at the visitor’s center with instructions about what you need and how to hike up to the Chado Cliff. It takes from 35 to 45 minutes “ one way”, don’t try this hike wearing flip-flops as it’s pretty steep climbing up that hill and at some points there are ropes to hold on to, so make sure to wear decent shoes.
Diving and Snorkeling
Koh Lipe is located in the middle of the Tarutao National Marine Park, which makes it a great spot for diving as there are plenty of diving sites to explore. There are many reputable companies to choose from and you can get your Open Water Certificate from local diving shops or just go on fun dives. You can also grab fins and a mask and watch the beautiful marine life just a short way from shore.
