Koh Lipe, Thailand

Learn to Dive (5 days / 4 nights. Incl. 4 dives)

The diving
If your main idea of doing your initial course in diving is on a tropical island with white crunchy beaches and an atmosphere that makes you want to build a shack and adopt a coconut, you should go to Koh Lipe. The island is still a very unspoiled island both on land and in the surrounding ocean. It has all the charm a paradise island should have and each year it is attracting many young backpackers making the place even more interesting no matter what you are into. During your Open Water Course, you will see some very healthy reefs, plastered with soft coral gardens, and amazing topography. It is the Andaman Sea, meaning that the diversity of fish here is very large. No doubt you will see many different species on one single dive. The variation of the dive sites is just as great, and you will rarely turn up at one site and find another boat there. Some dive sites are calm and peaceful and perfect for getting you down in gear, others are fun drift dives with a confident current pushing you along the reef while you watch everything pass by. Both great types of diving!

Together with your instructor you will have a fun and safe first experience in diving.

Koh Lipe might be the most magical place in the Andaman Sea both above and below the ocean surface. Situated in the south west of Thailand in the Tarutao National Park and part of the Butang archipelago, this is truly paradise for backpackers and others seeking the island life as it used to be. This is one of the very few islands where the corals are in pristine condition even on the main beach and absolutely perfect for snorkeling. As far as the island goes, the atmosphere is unbeatable, and can't be compared to any island in Thailand. Chilled beach bars, perfect white sand and cozy accommodation makes you wanna hang around forever. No clocks, no hassle just Utopia on a lush green island full of some quite authentic people from a very mystic past of this archipelago. Descendants of pirates and sea gypsies inhabits this perfect island, why not go claim it?

Your resort
The whole island is charmingly basic, and so is the DJL Resort. As a standard, we have created the packages with dorm rooms. The dorm rooms are simple but clean and with A/C. However, upon booking, you can always chose to upgrade to a private room for an extra fee... The private rooms does not have A/C though, but a fan to keep you cool at night.
