Maya Bay in Phi Phi
Phi Phi's Most Beautiful Beaches
Imagine a deep turquoise blue water lagoon embraced by
silky white sand enclosed by breathtaking 100-meter high limestone
It almost seems like a place too perfect to be true, but as you
blissfully cruise into Maya Bay, you will soon watch dreams become a
Maya Bay is a stunningly beautiful bay that's sheltered by
100-metre high cliffs on 3 sides. You can enjoy several beaches here.
Most are small and some only exist at low tide. The main beach is around
200 metres long with silky soft white sand. The whole bay is one big
reef and the underwater scene features colourful coral and exotic fish
in exceptionally clear water.
Maya Bay became a top attraction on Phi Phi after The Beach (1999) was
shot here. It was always very popular before the film but ever since the
film came out, people around the world who haven't even heard of Phi Phi
have certainly heard of Maya Bay.
