    Maya Bay

    Situated on Koh Phi Phi Leh, Maya Bay is a stunningly beautiful bay that's sheltered by 100-metre high cliffs on three sides. It has become the main tourist attraction of Phi Phi since the movie The Beach was filmed here in 2000. There are several beaches inside the bay, most of which are small and some only exist at low tide. The main one is around 200 metres long, with silky soft white sand and exceptionally clear water, containing colourful corals and exotic fish. As Maya Bay attracts large crowds between 10:00 and 16:00, it’s best to come and visit it before or after this busiest time to take good photos. Read More...
