Officials from the Had Noppharat Thara–Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park have announced the closure of the park to tourists and divers until weather conditions have improved.

Travel to Phi Phi Island itself however remains unaffected by the closure of the park.

Following the Thai Meteorological Dept today issuing a weather warning for “heavy to very heavy rain in the lower south” and “strong wind and high waves” in the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea, the decision was made to close the park.

Officials from the Had Noppharat Thara–Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park have warned tourists and divers to stay away from all tourist destination points and and diving areas within the park until the weather returns to normal.

The Had Noppharat Thara–Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park consists of Koh Phi Phi Don Island, Maya Bay, Koh Maipai (Bamboo Island), Noppharat Thara Beach, and Tub Kaek Beach.
