Also known as Sama Bay, Loh Samah Bay is one of the most popular and astonishingly beautiful destinations of Koh Phi Phi Leh. Lying on the eastern side of the southern tip of the island, Loh Samah Bay features a small islet in the middle and a small beach on its northern part.
Loh Samah Bay is separated from the Maya Bay by a limestone cliff and there is a tiny hole offering visitors access to the bay during low tide. A wooden staircase constructed on the side-facing Maya Bay offers unobstructed mesmerizing views of the bay and the islet.
The picturesque Loh Samah Bay makes for an excellent diving and snorkeling destination. The bay features a depth between 5 and 20 meters and offers an amazing visibility ranging from 5 to 15 meters. Diving is primarily done on the small island lying at the entrance of this bay.
The islet is flanked by 8 to 20 meters tall walls that are shrouded completely with shellfish and soft and hard corals. This is the place where you can find a host of colourful fish, parrots, and scorpions. With a number of yellow and blue fish living a little below the surface of the water, Loh Samah Bay offers an unmatched snorkelling opportunity.
Packed with light reflecting crustaceans on the seabed, Loh Samah Bay also makes for one of the top-rated night snorkeling sites in Phi Phi. Visitors can rent a long-tail boat and tour the bay, jumping off into the water to snorkel and dive at the most suitable places.
There are also a myriad of amazing places to stay and eat near Loh Samah Bay, letting globetrotters enjoy a comfortable and convenient day out to the bay.
