Wonderful beach which is covered by the limestone cliffs, from one way only you can enter the beach from the sea. The view is super magnificent, the water is very clear. This is totally different than any other beaches in Thailand and must see. Also the place around Maybay is very good for snorkeling (not at the beach though), you... More

The sand is so soft! The water is so warm. Really enjoyed our time here and wish we could have stayed longer. Will say though it was very crowded and too many boats anchored along the shore. But it's definitely worth seeing and experiencing at least once!

This beach is out of this world! Beautiful views, amazing scenery and such a nice vibe. Even though there were lots of tourists, it was still peaceful and serene. The extra money to go to the national park is worth it - plus this is where they filmed The Beach (gotta love Leonardo DiCaprio)

Famous bay, overcrowded with hardly any room on the beach! White sand beaches, blue sea and lovely views, it draws in the crowds of day trippers. It is beautiful but not secluded as thousands of people visit it everyday.

Went there with 2 of my friends through "MAYA BAY SLEEP ABOARD". The place offers the perfect example of heaven get away. Forest, beach, adventure, sealife all at one place. Mayabay sleep aboard is the only company there who provides night stay on the small island. Worth going place.

Crowdy! Milions of turists to see NOTHING you can't sea elsewhere... and very costly to visit. DO NOT GO FOR A "DAY TRIP WITH A LONGBOAT" = waste of time and money

Overcrowded and too many boats. It is the typical "Thailand photo" of the water and cliffs. However, you will not get as good a photo as there will be a hundred long boats and speedboats that bring people to the island. Costs 400 baht to get onto the beach (which seems like a scam, can only hope it goes to... More
