“Hidden Island Feeling”
Reviewed July 26, 2016

While not so hidden, but you get that hidden island feeling because it's surrounded by cliffs on all sides of the beach.. While the beach itself is not so special, and VERY crowded with tourists, I suggest you take a look inside the island, rather than the beach, the inside of the island is way better (in my opinion) than the beach itself, there is a cliff you can climb and see the Mushroom Island, and a little lagoon inside the island.

“Nice bay, but poor experience”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 via mobile

I had watched The Beach while I was in Thailand, so had high expectations for Maya Bay. It was beautiful, but unfortunately already packed with people around 11am. The boat loads of people really ruined the experience for me. So try and go early! Also the boats are docked right at the beach. So not much room swim room. Worth it to go, but wouldn't go again.

Would recommend :)

“It's a must!”
Reviewed July 25, 2016

One of the most beautiful and breathtaking beaches I've ever been to! Choose one of the boat tours from koh Phi Phi, make sure that you have your camera and underwater mask with you an off you go! Don't miss this.
