my dream destination Feb 09, 2011
Maya Bay was the ultimate pit stop to our day tour of the islands of Phi Phi in Phuket....It was just postcard perfect, it was The Beach. :)

The tour was great. It was a one day tour that cost us 2,300baht/pax. There was a pick up from our hotel, then welcome drinks when we arrived at the marina. The tour started at around 9am, with free drinks the whole day. We stopped at four different islands, had lunch in one of the island...Lunch was tasty but the beach near the restaurant was not that clean though, but still i went in for a swim. The the last stop was at Koh Kai, meaning Egg island, the island was a small one with no trees so it was littered with beach umbrellas with two chairs that you can rent for 150 baht. The beach was rocky but it was a good one for snorkeling.

The tour of the islands of Phi Phi in Phuket is not to be missed!

Maya Bay Camping Feb 13, 2011
Maya bay beach is one of the top ten beaches in the world. Most people take a day trip to Maya bay area. But if you watched the movie "The beach", And if you want to get the same experience, Better take the night camping package

from phi phi island. You can spend 1 night and 1 day at Maya bay area.Camping is full of fun and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend to take this night camping tour package.

If you want more information refer the below page.

Maya bay Jun 03, 2011
I went to Thailand september 2010.

I arrived in Bangkok alone and really afraid..

I spent 12 days at Koh Phi Phi and I will never forget that experience..

I started my travel alone and i was so afraid but then I arrived and i met a lot of great people that were traveling alone as well so it was really easy to connect to people because they were looking for the same as me.. just some random fun people to enjoy Thailand with.. I was a surprise to me how easy it was and how many people were traveling alone.

I stayed at a great local hostel called THE ROCK!

I recommend that hostel, I would never go elsewhere if I´d return.

At koh Phi Phi you can do all kinds of stuff, go diving, snorkling, visit the islands around such as Monkey Island, Bamboo beach and more..

If you go visit Koh Phi Phi, you'll never forget it

'The Beach' - make sure you go on a sunny day! Jul 13, 2011
Went to Maya Bay (aka 'The Beach') on an overcast day, the tide was also out. I imagined an image likened to that seen in the film 'The Beach', however I was a little underwhelmed! I'm sure with the tide in, the sun shining, less tourists etc the experience would have been far more memorable. Still a beautiful place, accessible only by boat.

I recommend taking a tail boat from Phi Phi. Haggle prices on Phi Phi; Spider Monkey tours were excellent value, providing lunch and snorkelling equipment for less than 400baht.

The beach of the beach Apr 10, 2011
It's a scenic place, but way too many people on this small beach. It is best to go as early in the morning as possible. We got there around 11am and it was standing room only....well it felt like it. You will more likely take a speedboat tour to many place around Phi Phi, so don't be disappointed if there are crowds.....it is a tourist spot. The boat stopped for about 35 minutes, which was more than enough time. Don't make this the highlight of your trip. If you really enjoy snorkeling, the speedboat will take you too some very nice places that surpass the beauty of Maya Bay. Its worth seeing but it would be way nicer with if there weren't those 1000 nds of other tourists

Maya Bay Apr 27, 2011
Not much one can say to describe how beautiful Maya bay is... a rather isolated island encased in mountains and crystal blue/green water. The sand is so soft that it feels like you're walking on flour... Just an incredible place and recommended for anyone!

This review sucks a fat one but I want to be able to send messages...

peace!

Maya Bay Aug 18, 2008
Maya Bay at Phi Phi Ley, known as 'The Beach' beach, made famous from the movie of the same name, starring Leonardo di Caprio. The movie is based on a book by Alex Garland.

The beach is absolutely gorgeous, with sparkling torquoise waters and soft white sand.

The beach has become tourist-y, at the time the tide was a bit high, not much of sandy beach, and a bit crowded, but the astounding views is enough to make you not be bothered with the crowd.

I came here on a day trip, I was really happy to finally make it here, but the best part of the tour was swimming at the lagoon at another end of Phi-phi Ley.
