Discover Maya Bay from the Movie «The Beach».
One-day group tour with an English speaking guide to visit the magnificent Phi Phi Islands, Maya Bay, the place of the film «The Beach» featuring Leonardo Di Caprio and enjoy the breathtaking views and snorkeling. We start the tours early so as not to coincide with a lot of tourism or at least try to make it more exclusive.
Closure of the national park from August 1 to September 30: Maya Bay can only be seen from the boat during this time, to take photos and appreciate its beauty. The rest of the program remains the same.
As you may know, from August 1, 2022 to September 31, 2022, Maya Bay is closed. We will do a snorkeling activity in front of the beach instead of visiting the beach. For this reason, we want to inform you about the new Itinerary of the Tour to Phi Phi from Phuket that we will operate only during this time period.
