Phi Phi, shot to fame in 2000 with the release of a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Carlyle, the movie, of course, is The Beach.
The movie made Maya bay which is located on Phi Phi Leh (the second largest island in this little archipelago) the most famous beach in the world and only recently due, and mainly due to tourism it had to be closed.
This allowed for the beach and nearby waters and corals to recover somewhat from the sheer amount of tourist this beautiful beach attracted.
This closure has been a success with a large group of Black Tip Reef Sharks (harmless to humans) returning and feeding again. It has also given the time for the beach to be cleaned properly and there are rangers on here twenty four hours a day making sure that everything is cared for in the proper manner.
