#Water Body, #Beach, #Must See
Take a trip to Maya Bay, the picturesque alcove featured in the 2000 film "The Beach," based on Alex Garland's book of the same name. Relax on the pleasant white sand or head out into the turquoise water on a diving or snorkeling trip to explore the diverse marine environment. Facilities nearby are basic, yet convenient and nice enough to cater to the large amount of international tourists visiting the site each year.

  • Similar to why most people visit Maya Bay, we visited to see the location of where The Beach was filmed. We spoke to a very helpful girl on Phi Phi who highly recommended getting the 6.30am boat trip ...  more »
  • Go to Phi Phi and not to visit it is impossible! The most famous beaches, where all are photographed. It is an incredible natural beauty. White sand, beautiful sea. Many people

  • The beach is really nice about it is, I think there is no doubt, but on Koh Phi Phi's are definitely beaches which are not less beautiful. We were around 9 in the morning on the Maya Bay, so really early. However, it was already complete full of people (about the one even must wonder, eventually to include even). However, the charm of this is of course completely lost. Who is big fan of the film, for which perhaps worth. Anyone else who would like to see to non Instagram-hobby photographers at work, to Maya Bay from my point of view as a "must go" delete.

  • real heaven. The best beach in Thailand (as much as I saw) lovely... fantastic...
  • A place that you must visit. Panorama, sand, the beach and the sea are splendid. You can enjoy sunbathing and swimming. Usually it is crowded and sometimes you may not be able to go there due to too many tourists. There is no restaurant or other services. You may find only a small bar open for drinks.
  • Very beautiful place, but is hard to get there by big boat. And is very crowded, people and boats everywhere. Not like in the internet pictures. But is a place to check in and see the beautiful nature. The water is crystal clear and the sand is very thin. Beautiful place. Go and see it.
  • Very beautiful tourist attraction. Definitely picture worthy.
  • MAYA BAY IS THE BEST! DEFINITELY WILL BACK HERE! phi phi island 14 July 2017 ❤
