Koh Lipe (also known as Ko Lipe, Koh Lipey or Koh Lipeh) is a small island in the South Andaman Sea. Originally Koh Lipe was only inhabited by Sea Gypsies or Chao Ley (people of the sea). They gave the island its name – Koh Lipe, which means Paper Island.
It’s almost 70 km of tropical paradise that attracts numerous tourists with great nature, fantastic sandy beaches and extraordinary marine life. People come here to bask under the sea on coconut palms fringed beaches, to do snorkeling and diving around coral reefs and simply enjoy tranquility and peacefulness of the beautiful island.
Sunrise Beach on Koh Lipe, Thailand is the longest and the nicest beach on the island with truly amazing sunrises.
Koh Lipe “Sunrise Beach is the best beach on Lipe” is something we hear many of our guests visiting Koh Lipe for their holiday say. We kind of agree 🙂 and think that it’s not without a reason that Sunrise Beach has been voted the #1 of 11 things to do in Ko Lipe by more than 1,200 voters. Sunrise Beach on Koh Lipe has won TripAdvisor’s prestigious Travelers Choice Award yearly from 2014 until 2018.
Lipe Beach Resort itself is located at the northern part of Sunrise Beach. There is a school next to it which gives our guests a unique opportunity to catch a glimpse into the livelihood, culture and life-style of 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 shouldn’t expect too much from this hospital, there is no ER room and only small medical problems can be taken care of on Koh Lipe Island itself.

When you are on Koh Lipe don’t forget to visit some of the islands surrounding it. Koh Adang is famous for its Viewpoint and Koh Rawi offers some of the most stunning beaches in the Southern Andaman Sea so both are highly recommended to see. From Sunrise Beach which is where we are located you’ll be on Koh Adang in less than 15 minutes by taking the Thai Traditional longtail boat.
While having vacation on Koh Lipe most tourists sooner or later come to Koh Lipe’s Walking Street. It is a narrow road with a network of paved lanes and paths and numerous nice little shops. Here you can find general tourist things and souvenirs as well as local handwork, many bars & restaurants. Don’t forget to visit Elephant Bar where really good breakfasts are served and Sawasdee Bar which is a cool authentic Thai Bar in the middle of Walking Street.
