Maya Bay

Maya Bay is a stunningly beautiful bay located on Phi Phi Island. Surrounded by steep limestone cliffs, Maya Bay has several beaches leading down to an amazing turquoise color water. The main one is around 200 meter wide white sandy beach.
Snorkeling and diving are highly recommended activities when you visit Maya Bay. It is a spectacular place to see underwater colorful coral and fish live in the crystal clear water. You can also find other water sports such as canoeing, fishing and rowing tour at Maya Bay.

Maya bay has become the tourist attraction after the 2000 movie "The Beach" was filmed there. Because of its clear greenish blue water and its dramatic cliffs that rise up out of the clear waters, Maya Bay was chosen as the main location in the film. The bay attracts hundreds of visitors everyday. It became the favorite vacation spot for couples and families.

Best time to visit Maya Bay is from November to April due to there are large waves in other months that can make the bay's entrance dangerous for boats.

How to get there: Getting to Maya Bay is easy. Tours to Maya Bay can be arranged from Phi Phi Don Island, Phuket and Krabi. There are various kinds of boat tours (longtails, speedboats, ferry boats) that take you to Maya Bay. From Phi Phi Don Island, you can take longtails and speedboats. From Phuket and Krabi, you can mainly take speedboats. The price varies from the type of boats used and the duration of the tour. To avoid the crowds, please try to visit the bay early in the morning or after 5:00 p.m.
