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.

  • In an effort to beat the crowds which pretty much proved impossible. I made an early morning 630am trip to Phi Phi Ley. Maya Beach being the first stop. A lovely sheltered bay made famous by that Leo ...  more »
  • Beautiful beach, the sand is fine and the turquoise water. Too bad that there is so many people. It closes from June to September.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches I have seen and I have see A LOT all around the world. As everyone else has mentioned you must expect this place to be absolutely packed. You won't want to stay long because of the crowd but it is something you must do 1 time in your life. We almost didn't go because of the crowds but I'm glad we did the island hopping tour to see it briefly.
  • There was so much hype about this beach but I honestly didn’t get it. It’s beautiful but no more than the sand by our hotel. The water is really dirty with everyone’s sunscreen floating on the top and trash. You’re also either body to body or can’t see past the dozens of boats.
  • Most Amazing beach ever seen in my life. Heaven...!!
  • The famous Maya Bay, one of the most popular tourist attractions in Tayland, located at one of the many tropical islands of the country. Beautiful, sandy, exotic beach with too many visitors from the nearby areas. Picturesque scenery, crystal waters.
  • The view is nice. Too many speed boats. The beach is sandy but you can’t swim because is shallow in some places and corals, rocks etc.
