Koh Lipe "Sunrise Beach is the best beach in Lipe" we hear many of our guests say, and throughout the years we have seen quite a few of them. We kind of agree :) and think that it’s not without reason that Sunrise Beach has been awarded by more than 300 voters for the prestigious 2015 Travelers Choice award by TripAdvisor.
Lipe Beach Resort itself is located at the northern part of Sunrise Beach next to Lipe its school. Being located next to the school gives our Guests quite the unique opportunity to catch a glimpse into the livelihood, culture and life-style regarding the local Chao Ley children. In addition we are also very close to the government hospital on Koh Lipe. Being located on a remote island which is nearly 70km from the mainland one should expect too much out of this hospital, there is no ER room and only small medical problems can be taken care of on Koh Lipe itself. Although we have the widest stretch of beach on Sunrise Beach in front of the resort most of our Guests do really enjoy to occasionally stroll further up north as the beach gets even wider and after just 200 meters there is a beautiful curve to the left which just creates amazing scenes during sunset times, depending on the season. Walking down this part of the beach is not recommended without a camera or decent smart phone that takes good pictures.
Koh Lipe, Sunrise Beach summarized:
• A nearly 2km stretch and beautiful beach which is located along the west side of Koh Lipe
• Crystal clear water with a variety of exotic marine life being present
• The northern part of Sunrise beach is considered the best location on Koh Lipe for snorkeling
• It is considered less crowded, touristy and noisy compared to Koh Lipe its Pattaya Beach
• It is considered more developed compared to the Koh Lipe Sunset Beach Area
• Try to wake up really early at least once or twice to treat yourself to the best possible start of any day, catching a stunning sunrise!
Lipe its Sunrise Beach is busiest between November and April which are clearly the high season months on Koh Lipe. All the beach bars, restaurants, massage parlors will open up for business and connecting ferries to other island in the southern part of Thailand where Koh Lipe is located start to run. Around the end of May low season starts and many restaurants, shops and even hotels will close their doors during this period.

On a clear day it is also possible to see Koh Tarutao and Langkawi Islands (Malaysia). Two islands (Koh Kra and Koh Usen) just off Sunrise Beach offer little coral gardens for viewing. Tourists can find a few small restaurants and shops nearby (at the beginning of Ko Lipe Walking Street). Also a small Chao Ley village with a school and a hospital can be found in the vicinity.
The water of Sunrise Beach is crystal clean and rich in exotic marine wildlife that is nice for diving and especially favorable for snorkeling. Make sure to try this and enjoy abundant aquatic life. This is truly an experience like no other! Many tourists say that Koh Lipe is more beautiful under water than above. It's up to you to say which you like more.
