Maya Bay Closure Extended to 2021

Post by fountainhall » Fri May 10, 2019 9:56 am

Those planning to visit Maya Beach on Phi Phi Leh will recall it was closed last year because the environment was being severely damaged as a result of tourists increasing to around 5,000 a day. Now it has been announced that the iconic beach, made famous as a result of Leonardo di Caprio's movie of the same name, will remain closed for a further two years. When it reopens, the number of visitors will be restricted and boats will be banned from mooring in the bay.
