Maya Corner

Located on the west side of Koh Phi Phi Lei in Thailand, Maya Bay is a stunning dive site renowned for its appearance in the movie 'The Beach'. Dive enthusiasts will find Maya Corner just inside the northern entrance of the bay, following the coastline north. This dive site features a steep shelved reef with intermittent wall sections, offering a diverse underwater landscape.

Divers have the incredible opportunity to encounter both green and hawksbill turtles during their dive, with sightings of two or three turtles being quite common. Additionally, stingrays and black-tip reef sharks can occasionally be spotted in this area. The reef itself is adorned with hard corals, providing a vibrant backdrop for underwater exploration. Adventurous divers can also explore the swim-throughs filled with sweepers.

For snorkelers, Maya Bay offers a large and shallow bay teeming with colorful patch corals and schools of reef fish. Although sharks are typically found further up the northern coast, this area is known for sightings of abundant moorish idols and bannerfish. As expected, divers can encounter a wide variety of reef fish commonly found in the region.

Notably, Maya Bay is a beginner-friendly dive site and snorkeling location, rarely affected by currents, particularly within the bay itself.
