A beautiful beach however it gets extremely busy during the day . Go in the morning to avoid the crowds. If you stay on phi phi island the sailing into the sunrise to maya bay is exquisite. You can negotiate a deal with the locals for a private long tail boat which is much better . You go according to your schedule . There’s an environmental charge if you get onto the maya bay beach. Approx 10 dollars pp.
There’s good snorkeling spots a short distance away from maya bay .

We have been here twice - once in 2016 and again this year, 2018. If you’re reading this, you’ll know all about “that” film with LDC so I won’t elaborate but yes it’s a beautiful place. You can’t access it any other way other than longtail boat - get a driver on the island to take you.

We have spoken to some tourists who say the place is rammed and dirty with litter etc. but on both occasions we got there earlier before the droves of tourists so it looked amazing. Just be sure you take some extra Baht for the tourist/cleaning:conservation tax they charge you upon entry. I can’t remember how much it was but you do need to pay.

A great photo opportunity too!

WE got to the famous maya bay beach
around 10.30am
was so crowed couldn't even see the beach.. tourists and boats every we're!!!
couldn't even get pictures cause there is people EVERYWHERE ... you literally can't see the beach and the sea is full of boats waiting on people on the beach.
plus you have to pay 400baht each when you arrive to just get on it ..
not worth the price at all

This place has beautiful cliffs, the softest sand u ou will ever feel, and beautiful water. It is a beautiful pay for relaxing on the beach. Not great for swimming. It is ankle and knee deep for a long time. Our party ended up sitting in the water. But never the less, it was one of the highlights of the day!
