We arrived at around 7:30 AM. No trash. ~50 people at the bay. took a longtail boat from PHI PHI DON. Absolutely breathtaking. It is now my 15 year old's favorite place on our planet.

Done a tour to Maya bay. The boat stopped 100 yards away from the beach. The stones underwater were everywhere and unavoidable. If you can pick up proper shoes before visiting then do. Other than that it was a lovely place. Quite busy with tours coming and going.

We visited this beach along with other islands on a boat tour. We came in the morning around 9am, there were a couple of hundred people already on the beach but it didn't seem to cramped and were able to take a few pictures without people in the way. However within an hour there was no room to move around... More

The prized beach of the Phi Phi islands and the location for the movie, The Beach with DiCaprio. Don't expect a secluded private beach. Expect a beach swarming with people. Still worth seeing, because it is beautiful!

Maya Bay is an amazing place! White sand and blue sea. Everything you expect from a beach and more. Can be a bit crowded but it didnt make my stay less enjoyable!
