Ko Lipe was a nice quiet little island with a good beach (Pattaya Beach), a great marine live and a serious water problem. Then some years ago a water pipeline was built and the place developed instantly in a major tourist destination with more then 100 different accommodation and for Thailand unusual expensive (even the 7-11 shop charges 100% more then in the rest of Thailand).
The island is still nice and the diving is one of the best in Thailand (for snorkeling it is now better to use one of the boat trips), but quiet it is certainly not.
Ko Lipe is part of the Tarutao National Marine Park, but outside of the National Park jurisdiction, settled by sea gypsies, known as the 'Chao Lei'. There are many sites for scuba diving and snorkeling around Koh Lipe and the neighbouring islands.
