Maya Bay is one of the most famous beaches in Thailand. The beautiful beach is located on the island of Koh Phi Phi Leh near Koh Phi Phi Don. Maya Bay is just 250 metres long and 15m wide. Maya Bay is part of a Hat Noppharat Thara – Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park.
Maya Bay was made famous by the movie ‘The Beach’ directed by Dany Boyle starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Virginie Ledoyen. It’s really a beautiful place, one of the most amzing beaches in Thailand but probably also the one that attracts the most tourists and speedboats. Almost all the tours offered by loal agencies have Maya Bay beach in their program.
To enjoy Maya Bay without all these people, you have to hire a longtail boat , the day before, and go there early morning, ideally just after dawn. You will find longtail boats near the pier in Ton Sai or on Loh Dalum beach in Koh Phi Phi – Krabi, Thailand.
