Water Body Beach
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.

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.
