The views are indeed gorgeous, the water is clean and warm, however expect it to be VERY crowded. Depending on the time of the day you arrive (most day-trips will take you there in the morning/early afternoon), it is bound to be overcrowded - we...More

Note: there is a 400 baht charge for entering the area! If you’re looking for any type of photos, definitely try to be here as early as you can but ensure it’s safe to do so with the sea water level. Typically 6/7am if possible!...More

Very nice place. I have been five times before but unfortunately gets very busy to try to book with a boat that goes early in the morning (when it is re-opened). Must see the movie first!

Shutting down the island is a bitter sweet news but it was a relief to know that finally the Thai authorities are now doing something. Maya Bay is an absolute breath-taking island for a picture-perfect paradise getaway, of course exclude all the litters. I’ve arrived...More

On the news the other day it said for FOUR months. Also as an FYI Phi Phi will also be virtually shut down as it’s the close season when they build and repair for next season starting in November.
