Phi Phi Island is located in the Andaman Sea and has a tropical monsoon climate. The island receives 2,859 hours of sunshine per year, which means there’s plenty of opportunities to go out and enjoy the sun. However, be aware that the rainy season is from May to October. In addition to rain showers, this time also brings some storms that can create rough waters on your trip between islands.

Rainbows are another beautiful sight you might see while visiting Phi Phi Island. They’re often seen after a storm or when it starts to rain; but you might also catch a glimpse of one during an overcast day if there’s enough moisture in the air!

Seasonal Weather

Phi Phi has two distinct seasons: the dry season and the rainy season. During the dry season, which lasts from November through April, you’ll experience hot and humid weather with temperatures in the 80s. The rainy season is somewhat more unpredictable, but it generally falls between May to October. With some exceptions, most years see rain once or twice per month during this time of year.

If your visit coincides with one of these months without a break in between them—in other words if you’re going between November and December or January through March—you may find yourself wondering how long it will be until it stops raining (or vice versa).
