Maya Bay On Koh Phi Phi Leh, Thailand
There’s a reason the 2000 drama The Beach was filmed on Koh Phi Phi’s infamous Maya Bay in Thailand. The beach is tucked away in a cove of moss-covered rocks on one of Thailand’s tiny southern islands, a hot tourist destination for anyone in search of warm, clear waters and white sand.
This area is also known for its diving, scuba, and snorkeling, due to the abundance of sea creatures that call the bay their home. The only issue with this beach is once you’re there, you might not want to leave! It is the textbook definition of beauty.
