Set Sail to faraway destinations
The port island of Langkawi in Malaysia, about an hour by speed boat from Koh Lipe, is a tax-free sailing haven—a great place to repair and purchase equipment before setting off again.
With Phuket, to the North, being one of southeast Asia’s largest boating destinations, Lipe makes for a fantastic stop-off between between Phuket and Langkawi. Regatta's routinely run from Koh Lipe to Koh Mook, Koh Boulon, Koh Kraden, Koh Lanta, and Koh Phi-Phi. Sailing is a wonderful way to view the uniqueness and tranquility of southwestern Thailand, with Lipe as its crown jewel.
