The Beach Guide

Maya Bay, Ko Phi Phi Lee

Virtually enclosed within towering limestone cliffs Maya Bay is one of Thailand’s most spectacular and iconic beaches. The beach is situated on the island of Ko Phi Phi Ley in the Andaman Sea some 30km off the Thai coast and only accessible by boat. However, the 2000 Leonardo diCaprio movie, “The Beach”, which put Maya Bay on the map ensuring its popularity for years to come. It is said that much damage was caused to the beach during the filming but in a strange twist of karma much of this was put right by the effects of the 2004 tsunami.
The island is now part of Phi Phi National Park and is home to several popular dive sites, including the entrance to Maya Bay itself.
