Absolutely stunning! Natural, quiet beach. Monkeys swinging threw the trees. Limited facilities but not needed if you want a simple beach day. Lots of boat trips run throughout the day a must see.

Maya Bay was made popular by the movie 'The Beach'...in case you didn't catch that in just about every youtube travel video you may have already watched about Koh Phi Phi :) The amount of tourists on and sailing around Maya Bay is a testament to just how much popularity the movie brought to this exotic oasis. Nevertheless, join the crowd and go, because even though it's crawling with tourists (unless you go early in the morning) you realize you are amidst one of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. Seriously, the stuff travel brochures are made of. We chartered a private boat and took off for a few bays (one of which is Maya Bay) located in Koh Phi Phi Ley (this is the island across from Koh Phi Phi Don which is where you will likely be staying). With snorkel gear in tow we swam in the waters of Maya Bay, and although we didn't dock at the main beach, we snorkeled to a semi-private one near the entrance of the bay. It...was...magical. The sense of history, mysticism, and beauty converge to give you an otherworldly vibe. Definitely make the trip if you are in Koh Phi Phi, or even as a day trip from Krabi. You will not regret this!

after 8:30 it is too much crowded. If you expect to see a beatiful beach, wake up early and take the boat at 7 am as we did.

Such a beautiful spot! Go in the late afternoon though as I've heard that it can be disgustingly busy during the day which would have no doubt ruined the experience

one of the most beautiful places on earth but it's not a secret. Packed with people. Toilets, snack bar available. As its a national park though, an entrance fee of 100 baht required.
