Koh Phi Phi’s climate is tropical and warm throughout the year. The northeast monsoon from November into January is wonderful, with breezy clear days and fragrant cool nights. From February to May the breezes end, and the weather is at its best. From November to May, Phi Phi Island has 26 sunny days per month. The southwest monsoon, from late May to October, brings rain and winds to the west coast of southern Thailand, but there are still 20 sunny days per month. Most often it’s only a cool, late afternoon shower, but there can be rainy days on Koh Phi Phi. Seas can be quite rough during this season and swimmers should be careful.
For visitors with only one day to spend in Koh Phi Phi, snorkeling in Hat Yao should be the top choice of activity. An exciting destination for a day trip, the water is crystal clear and the temperatures warm, maximising the chance of seeing an array of colorful and exotic marine creatures.
