One of the most stunning and sought after beach in Thailand, the Maya beach which is famously known as the filming location of movie The Beach starring Leonardo Di Caprio, would be shut for another two years allowing it to regenerate its natural beauty. The beach would be closed until 2021 untill the nature regain its natural beauty and only then would be allowed to become the tourist hotspot again. This beach in Thailand has been one of the most sought after natural treasure, thanks to the famous movie The Beach that helped it gain this massive popularity.

1. Coral setback


This beach in Thailand was closed in the year 2018 as the part of the rejuvenation program when the corals of the place was getting widely affected. As the part of the Rejuvenation program, around 10,000 corals have been replanted and so the beach has to be kept away from crowd to allow the corals to grow and survive.

2. New facilities


The beach is kept closed to allow it to get back to its shape and form. Also new amenities like new washrooms and electronic ticketing system which would limit the number of visitors by 1200 which earlier was around 5000. As a result the beach has suffered massively and thus needs time for regeneration.

3. Condition earlier


Before the closure the Maya beach in Thailand was experiencing the growth in the people visiting every minute. Thanks to the massive popularity gained by the shooting of The Beach. As a result this beach in Thailand had become the hotspot of tourists and who come here in bulk to try out the various sports activity, photoshoot. The Maya beach is ought to be one of the most famous tourists hotspot and one of the most loved beach in Thailand and we really hope that it regain its charm soon and keep being the eye candy to the thousands of tourists.
