Maya Bay, Ko Phi Phi Don

3.6
#1 of 304 in Nature in Thailand
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.

    Obviously the goal is to happen very early otherwise hundreds of tourist boats coming and the landscape no longer has no interest! We arrived very early in speed boats with Celtours and the crew Greenview Tower. We could enjoy the scene before d be too polluted by the crowd! Everyone is complaining that there are too many people but everyone wants to go there so obviously it gets stuck!

    The most stunning beach I've ever seen in my life. We enetered the beach through the back entrance instead of the typical entrance in the front of the beach. I felt like i was in another planet when i saw this beach. Truly stunning and worth visiting. I recommend getting there earlier in the day to take in the nice views.

Where to stay in Ko Phi Phi Don

The harbor area in Ko Phi Phi Don offers the greatest variety of accommodations on the island. Mid-range and high-priced beach resorts and simple hotels remain the norm here, though backpacker-aimed accommodations remain available, often with decent facilities at fair prices. Away from the main tourist areas, accommodations become a little more isolated, a little more exclusive, and a little pricier.
