Maya bay outside of Phi-Phi Islands
Most likely you have already seen Maya bay beach without even knowing so. How come? Because it is the beach from the movie “The Beach” with Leonardo Dicaprio. In the movie it is slightly moderated of course but it is very recognizable. Not only that, it is also a wonderful place to visit!
I went there on a day-tour by boat from the lovely island Koh Lanta with a traveling friend from Germany and about 18 tourists from China. It was so fun! Before we visited Maya Bay we snorkeled and saw many amazing places. We also visited monkeys living on the cliffs who were swimming around and chilling.
Some photos I took on the way towards Maya Beach:
The beach itself is not very big but the sight is incredibly beautiful. There are some minor buildings and behind the beach itself and you can walk through a big cave like entrance in the mountain and climb down a rope-ladder to get to the water. An amazing experience.
When I was there it was very crowded but I did manage to get some photos which makes it look a bit more serene than it was. But I assure you that even we were many people there enjoying the beach it did not take away from the amazing experience, the lovely water, the beautiful nature and the thrilling mission to jump from one boat to another.
If you are going by this area then you must visit this beautiful place!
I booked my trip with Apple Travel on Koh Lanta and I just want to throw their name out there because they really focused on me having a good trip and not on making money out of me. That felt rare in Asia so I recommend them to everyone!
