Maya Bay is beautiful, cristal clear water the sand like flour..amazing! Take a walk in the "jungle", its very quiet and amazing! Important thing: take the "avoid the crowed" tour (or hire a privet boat), which starts at 6AM from the pier! This way will be only 1-2 longtail boats at the bay when you arrive..!! We spent 1,5 hour here, and when we departed there were no space to swim or enjoy the view - at least 25-30 speedboats/longtail boats were docking at the bay (its mean 15-25 pay per boat..)!
So definitely a must see - but only in the early morning!

Lots of people but not so crowed that there was a lack of space to enjoy. This is a must see when in Thailand.

Very picturesque and the ocean is great for swimming. This was one of our stops on a tour of several locations and I liked this a lot. One of those places were living it is far better than seeing a picture.

We hired a long tail boat for the day and had decided to make our way over to Maya Bay at 0800 to avoid the crowds and speed boats.. it had seemed that we were not the only ones with the same idea!

When we arrived the beach was practically full with speed boats. Our long tail boat struggled to find a space because it was so busy! The beach is beautiful with amazingly soft sand however it is such a shame how overcrowded it is! At such an early time we was NOT expecting the crowds that we experienced. We spent ages trying to get shots as everytime we picked up our camera the shot was photo bombed by a 'wanna be' model or a speed boat!

Definately worth a visit however just be prepared it may not be what you expect..
