Koh Lipe Sunset Beach is on the western side of Koh Lipe. The beach that faces the sunset – which is perfect for romantic quiet evenings.
The sunset on a clear day is absolutely stunning and it’s an attraction that every visitor to Koh Lipe island will want to see at least once during their trip.
But what else is there to do on Koh Lipe Sunset Beach?
Sunset Beach is the quietest on the entire island. That means that it’s always pretty peaceful compared with Pattaya Beach and Sunrise Beach.
This is ideal for swinging on a hammock or just relaxing on the beach without the crowds in other parts of the island.
However, Sunset Beach Koh Lipe is also the least developed part of the island. The hotels on Sunset Beach are all built on the top of the cliffs. This gives great views over the bay but they lack the simplicity of being able to step straight from the bungalow onto the sand, like hotels on Pattaya Beach and some on Sunrise Beach.
What’s more, the area of sand is pretty narrow, so when the sea rolls in there isn’t much to walk along.
Sunset Beach nightlife
Nightlife on Sunset Beach is pretty non-existent apart from a scattering of small restaurants. These are all closed in low season between June and December.
The walk from Sunset Beach to corner of Pattaya Beach is about ten or 15 minutes. The route to Walking Street is slightly different, but takes about the same amount of time.
Accommodation on Sunset Beach is cheaper than the other two beaches on Koh Lipe. Most of the rooms are wooden bungalows. In low season they’re almost 90% empty and in high season they are all full.
Because Sunset Beach Koh Lipe is a little less desirable with less nightlife, then it’s possible to stay here quite cheaply, and make the stay on Koh Lipe really affordable.
Even if you don’t decide to book a hotel on this particular beach, I would recommend visiting here at least once during your stay on Koh Lipe.
It’s not too far from Pattaya Beach or Walking Street, and it’s a great way to spend an afternoon.
