Koh Lipe is a tiny island in the Andaman Sea located 70 km off the southwest coast of Thailand near the Malaysian border.

The Thai name is transliterated many different ways into English. The most common names in English are Koh Lipe, Koh Lipeh, Ko Lipey and Ko Lipe. Koh Lipe is part of the Tarutao National Marine Park and is directly south of the larger islands Ko Adang and Ko Rawi and about 50km from the island of Tarutao.

It was settled by a band of sea gypsies originally from Malaysia, known as the 'Chao Lei' people or also known as Urak Lawoi. This island has four main beaches: Sunset beach, Sunrise beach, Karma Beach and Pattaya beach.

Accommodation from grass huts to air-conditioned bungalows can be found on these beaches. It is possible to walk around the entire island in little over an hour.

The island can be reached all year around. The high season is from November to May with daily ferries running from Lanta and Langkawi. During low season the daily boats only operate between Ko Lipe and Pak Bara. The medical clinic by the new school has been expanded but still lacks a full time doctor. Most resorts have 24 hour electricity either produced by their own generators, or bought from other suppliers on the island.
