I know it is a very famous place in Thailand but truly wasn’t an enjoyable one. It is very crowded and you can’t even have a decent sunbathing session even for just a few minutes. They should regulate the tourists coming in at Koh Phi...More

Too many boats are allowed to enter at the same time. We took an “early bird” tour from Krabi and supposed to be among the first arriving there. Were at the beach around 8 am ... with at least other 50 boats and lots of...More

Visited Maya Bay as part of a day tour and it was so overrated. Mainly because of the following reasons: 1. It's not that pretty... Thailand has an abundance of beaches and because this one featured in a film it's been completely ruined! 2. Millionssssssss...More

It was one of the most beautiful beach we ve visited in thailand. White sands like powder, clear crystal water. It's too crowded, noisy from boats. It's just for taking good photos and posting them on social media :p

Maya bay is not what they sell you in photos. You can barely see the floor with all the people that stand on the beach.

All the private long boats are by the pier near Mcdonalds. The usually price for 2 people is 1200 baht but this doesn’t include your national park fee which is 400 baht.
