is a small island in the south of Andaman coast, Thailand. The beaches
are rather mediocre by Thai standards, and all of the sweet legends about the island goes back to that happy days, when it was almost unknown. As for now, there are too many tourists and too many hotels. So the place was completely spoiled. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. 
There are many hotels in Koh Lipe, - maybe too many for such a small island. Unfortunately, it don't make prices to become cheaper. The typical coast of a good room is about US$100 per night, that is very expensive for such a boring beach holiday. Find hotels in Koh Lipe

Useful information 
If you have seen the Mechanic: Resurrection
movie, you are likely to remember the beautiful Koh Lipe beach, where Jason Statham meets Jessica Alba. Sorry, but it would be too good to be true. In fact, that episode was filmed on Koh Yao Yai island
near Phuket. As for Koh Lipe, it has nothing like that.
