Thailand’s DNP to Rejuvenate Maya Bay

Thailand’s Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) announced that Maya Bay in Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park will not admit visitors during a fourth month rejuvenation period between June 01 – September 30.

It will not allow boats to enter the bay in front of the beach, or even drop anchor at nearby Loh Samah Bay, as visitors and their vessels will not be allowed to enter Maya Bay.

Travellers can still catch a glimpse of the Bay’s beauty, at a 400 m distance, or between the two cliffs that form a natural entrance to the lagoon.

But this will be strictly supervised and carefully monitored by DNP.

During the four-month period, the DNP will undertake a coastal and marine environment quality evaluation study on the condition of reef and beach resources, environmental control, and tourism management.

This is to properly determine measures for environmental sustainability of Maya Bay during future off-tourist seasons.
