Maya Bay - The Jewel Of Phi Phi Islands

There is a very good reason why beach lovers come to Maya Bay - its long stretch of white beach, crystal clear aquamarine water, and secluded setting have won many hearts. This place is blessed with soaring limestone cliffs; no wonder it was featured on ‘The Beach,’ which unfortunately has attracted many tourists who have impacted its environment. Owing to this, the Thai government had to restrict visitors since restoring its pristine environment was crucial for the survival of the ecosystem. Thanks to the effort, now visitors can enjoy the beautiful bay but with new rules which allow eight speedboats at a time to dock with a maximum of 300 tourists per round. Thanks to such an initiative, now tourists will be able to take pictures and enjoy the popular attraction by respecting the environment.

This cave is between 10 and 15 meters in height and has old drawings of Viking ships which are believed to be drawn by sea gypsies or pirates who would stop here to shelter from the storms. But what makes this cave even more unique is the fact that it is home to thousands of birds called Swiftlet, which make their nests by using their own saliva. These nests are called white nests and are edible and expensive. The white nest can cost about $6000 per kg.
