You go in by boat and I didnt understand if it was the famed maya beach we were at or not, as it was a little undewhelming. You spend 400 baht to get onto the beach. Theres lots of boats so the water isnt great. Unless you want to say youve been to maya bay it might not be worth... More

Best beach I saw during my pohuket trip . Since movie "The Beach" was shot here , they charge 400 baht for entry. But it was a part of day package we took . The sand is buttery. and bery beautiful view. Clear water. You should visit inside the island as well . Not just the beach. One of its... More

A Visit to Phi Phi Islands is not complete if you dont visit Maya Bay. You can get a Boat from Phi Phi Don to go to Phi Phi Le . Takes about 15 minutes. Atleast visit there for Half A Day to Bathe in Sun and Sea. Chill & Relax on the serene beach as the waters are crystal... More

Maya bay was one of my favourite beaches ever! If you have the opportunity, book the tour where you get to sleep on a boat by the beach (which we did). That way, you get to see the beach in a quiet time, and spend loads of time chilling in it!

This beach was beautiful and only a little busy when we arrived. We walked to the other side of the island to climb the small platform. 20 minutes go by when we got back to the beach and there were so many people you could hardly move. Go as early as possible to avoiding chaos! Absolutely beautiful and worth the... More

We hung out in the bay here for a little while between scuba dives. It's cool that a movie was filmed there but it's completely packed with others and not necessarily any more special than other places around the islands there. Almost obligatory to say you've gone if you've already gone the distance to Phi Phi, but after you get... More

Maya beach - Maya bay. The beach from "the beach" is absolutely stunning and beautiful. Very crowded due to many tourists, but it's still amazing!

One of the most visited places by the speed boat tours around Phi Phi Islands makes this beach a very busy place, nevertheless gorgeous. It is beautifully located so if you can see aside from the hundreds of people it is a lovely place to be.

This is the main attraction of the so called "7 stop island tour". Please see my recent review for details regarding the tour as this is review of the beach itself. Pros: amazing location with a once in a life experience for your eyes , unless of course, you go back. Cons: We, along with 700-800 tourists, arrived around 1pm... More
