Nestled between Phuket and the west Straight of Malacca, Phi Phi Islands is best known for making its glamorous appearance in Leo DiCaprio’s, The Beach.

We arrive on the main island, Koh Phi Phi Don after a two hour journey by boat from Phuket. Phi Phi Don is where most tourists make their first stop with the shores filled with those anxious to discover what the island has to offer.

Phi Phi Don is a great place to stop for shopping and a bite to eat with countless markets and restaurants all around.

Following a hearty meal at Phi Phi Don, we made our way to Maya Bay. Limestone rocks, turquoise blue waters and picture perfect boats floating about as if in a dream.

You see it in the movies, come across endless Instagram posts highlighting its beauty but nothing prepares you for the actual thing presenting itself right in front of you.

The blue-est and clearest waters you can only imagine with giant, majestic rocks tinged with green reaching for the heavens!

My two-hour, incredibly rough boat ride to Phi Phi Islands was definitely worth this very moment.
