Photo of the Day – Boats on Maya Bay Beach – Maya Bay Beach, Ko Phi Phi, ThailandMade popular by the movie The Beach, starring Leonardo Di Caprio, Maya Bay Beach on Ko Phi Phi is a popular destination in Thailand. As it is depicted in the film, the bay and beach are engulfed in soaring cliffs bringing a sense of seclusion to the crystal clear waters and white sand beach.
The downside of it all is that today, this destination is so popular that there are hundreds of people and dozens of boats at the beach. As you can see in this photo, these are fairly ‘serious’ boats and they line the beach as tourists step out and enjoy some time at Maya Bay Beach. Although I have to say the boats and number of people certainly take away from the setting, it is no wonder that this beach has become so famous – it is stunning.
What other beaches have you been to that you feel are now overrun with tourist?
