My teenage daughter was very keen to visit. Luckily our longboat skipper knew his stuff like most spots in thailand there’s a charge We did some snorkelling off the bay the beach itself was packed but our guide slipped to a quieter more beautiful place , maya bay overrated

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.

The beach is overcrowded with tourists,the coral is amazing for snorkling.Small shark sightings is very common.
