I spent some days of my last holiday in Malaysia on the wonderful island Ko Lipe, which is located in Thailand but rather close to Malaysia.
All beaches on that island are beautiful but I provide my personal Top 4 beaches on Ko Lipe. With high tide in the morning until early noon, you should plan to go swimming or snorkeling at these times. In the afternoon, most beaches suffer from low tides revealing the corals that are close to the beach – injuries and aggressive fishes included. 🙂 Thus, swimming becomes difficult.
