Dream trip to Maya Beach in Thailand

Maya Beach is a place of breathtaking beauty that is sheltered by cliffs 100 meters high on three sides. Inside Maya Beach there are several beaches, most of them are small and some only exist at low tide. The main one is about 200 meters long with soft, silky white sand, colorful coral underwater and exotic fish in exceptionally clear water; the entire bay is a large reef. This has become Phi Phi Phi’s main tourist attraction since the shooting of The Beach in 1999. It was still very popular before the film, but now people around the world who haven’t even heard of Phi Phi have certainly heard of Maya Beach. Dream trip to Maya Beach in Thailand.


When to visit Mayra Beach in the year?

The best time to visit Maya Beach is between November and April during the high season, when the sea is calm and access is easy. Stormy seas from May to October can impede access, but rarely refuse entry. So the bad news is that it is so beautiful and well known that many boats are required to transport all visitors from one boat to another.


Speedboats and long tail boats on the beach

Every day, at any time, there will be over 30 speedboats and long-tail boats on the beach, with large ferry boats carrying hundreds of snorkelers and tourists moored in deep water. It’s beautiful, it’s beautiful, it’s not isolated, thousands of people visit it every day.

Try to visit early in the morning or after 5:00 p.m. and you will avoid the crowds. Please note that if you enter Maya Beach on your own, there is a 400 baht national park entrance fee. Therefore, this cost is included in the price of a tour.

The Beach – Film with Léonardo DiCaprio

The Beach by Alex Garland tells the story of young travelers who leave society to live in a hidden lagoon in the south of Thailand. Fox bought the rights to the book, hired Leonardo DiCaprio to star, and then searched for a location. Maya Beach was perfect. Fox decided that the perfect beach needed palm trees and less vegetation. By this very fact, they therefore redeveloped the beach so that it corresponded to a Hollywood stereotype.

Previously, environmentalists have said that removing vegetation will increase the risk of sand erosion and that the fragile natural ecosystem may never recover. The vegetation was replanted after the end of filming. Bamboo fences have been put in place to support the dunes.

The following year, during high tides and a strong storm, the dune collapsed, the sand sank on the beach and killed the coral in the sea. Thus, Fox went to great lengths to leave Maya Beach as they found it.

The debate continues on the question of whether the damage is due to the rearrangement or not, many say that the replanted vegetation has not yet “taken”. Filming began in 1999 and ‘The Beach’ was one of the most anticipated films of the year 2000. The film is cited by many tourists as an inspiration for their trip to Thailand.

Facilities at Maya Beach

Une petite cabane un peu en retrait de la plage vend des boissons et des snacks. Plus loin de la plage se trouvent des toilettes, mais vous ne voudriez les utiliser que si vous êtes désespéré. Il n’y a pas de nourriture disponible ici ; ceux qui campent doivent apporter leur propre nourriture. En ce fait même, les feux ne sont pas permis, mais il y a un barbecue permanent pour cuisiner

Activities at Maya Beach

Snorkeling and diving are excellent throughout Maya Beach. The large underwater rocks are encrusted with coral and the brightly colored fish are numerous. Visibility is therefore excellent
