Maya Bay, Ko Phi Phi Don Reviews - Write a Review

  • Awesome place with nice picturesque. This is the identity of Phi Phi.. You can swim snorkel and roam around in the beach. Free toilet facilities is also available in the beach. Mainly all the day trip speed boats serve food over this beach. Its worth making a visit to this beach and if you visit phuket Krabi or Phi Phi.. Make sure you never miss to visit this beautiful beach.

  • Nice small beach. Went part of a tour so it gets crowded easily. But the walk between the beach was adorable.

  • The sand here on the beach, is heavenly. But this gets too crowded. Too many people to have fun. Get in before 9 or you might skip it.

  • My girlfriend and I rented a private boat and a driver for 6 hours on a sunny day, starting from 7:30am. There weren't that many people, but we had a choice of landing on Maya Bay beach (which costs 400 baht per person) or just docking nearby and snorkel near the beach. We just snorkeled near the beach because the Maya bay entrance fee seems quite expensive. The water is very clear and the landscape entering Maya Bay is beautiful as ever!

  • Absolutely stunning location. But there are thousands of people and hundreds of boats at any one time. Trash is everywhere. By the state of things, the 400 baht fee isn't going anywhere near the beach.
