Visit Maya Bay (Koh Phi Phi)

Thai name : อ่าวมาหยา
My opinion:
Maya Bay will be closed to tourists from August 1 to September 30, 2023. Tourists will only be authorized to see it from afar. It should become the annual closing of the beach in the years to come.

Located on the uninhabited island of Koh Pi Phi Leh, Maya Bay was made famous by the movie ''The Beach'' directed by Dany Boyle starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Virginie Ledoyen. It's really a beautiful place, one of the most amzing beaches in Thailand but probably also the one that attracts the most tourists and speedboats. Almost all the tours offered by loal agencies have Maya Bay beach in their program.

Practical information about Maya Bay

Maya Bay is part of a marine park, you have to pay an entrance fee of 400 THB. Since its reopening in early 2022, tourists arrive at the back of the bay at Loh Samah Bay and the visiting time is is limited to 1 hour with a ban on swimming. Once tourism will really restart in Thailand, a daily visitor quota should come into effect.

Be careful, since its reopening, Maya Bay has been closed to tourists every year in August and September. During these 2 months, which will probably become the annual closing months of the beach (each time it was officially announced at the last minute), tourists cannot actually go on Maya Bay in Koh Phi Phi but only see it from afar.< /p>
