Ao Maya or Maya Bay is located on Phi Phi Le, the second largest island of Koh Phi Phi. Ao Maya is a stunningly beautiful bay hiden by 100-metre high cliffs on three sides. Ao Maya's shape look like the crescent moon, surrounded by limestone. The sea water is so bright green and the sand is so soft like powder. The sand beach with beautiful scenery background has been attracting tourists from many places of the world.
Maya Bay is famous throughout the world, after the movie 'the Beach' being filmed in 1991, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
You should visit Maya Bay from November to April, as large waves make the entrance dangerous for boats during the other months of the year.
