High Season - November to May
High Season starts early November and lasts until the first half of May. In high season there are daily ferries from several islands and piers on the mainland. If you are arriving during a Thai holiday in high season, it is wise to make a reservation, as the island regularly fills up completely. Koh Lipe is very popular for Thai tourists during long weekends and national holidays, and accommodation is sometimes booked months in advance.
Peak Season: December, January and February
From early December until the end of February is considered peak season on Koh Lipe. All the rooms on the island are full on most of the nights, and if you arrive without a reservation it will be hard to find a room you like.
Popular places are booked months in advance for Christmas and New Year, and during the weeks before and after. This is the same all over Thailand, and Koh Lipe is no exception, so reservations are highly recommended.
Low Season - May to November
Since 2009 daily ferries connect Koh Lipe to Pak Barra on the mainland and it is now possible to visit Koh Lipe all year. Although some places close during low season, quite a few others are now open all year. The island is quite in low season, or as the locals call it 'green season', but this means you will get the beach all to yourself and some places offer as much as 50% discount. From May until November Koh Lipe can only be reached from Pak Barra.
