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.

  • Unbelievable crowded even early morning. Beach and scenary is amazing but you need to accept the crowd  more »
  • Okay to "be seen" but expect a lot of people. There are fine beaches and scenic views for less money (400 baht per person to visit the beach) and significantly less people.

  • The beach is dirty, stink and is taken from the behind. Broken on the beach stone in the water, and all restaurants. Close tightly!

  • 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 ❤

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.
