Maya Bay Thai Beach to Close

Thailand's National Park & Wildlife Department announced that the beach at Maya Bay, on southwestern Thailand's Phi Phi Le island, will be closed for four months starting June 1. The purpose is to allow the sea environment to recover. An environmental survey found that parts of the coral reef around the beach had been damaged and the amount of sea life had diminished.

When the beach reopens again, the number of visitors will be limited to 2000 per day. Additionally, boats will not be allowed to anchor in the bay.

Many of Thailands beaches and marine areas are normally closed for several summer months to allow them to recover. Before this, Maya Bay had been open all year around.
