Popular Beach Closed Indefinitely

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Monday, October 8, 2018

Maya Beach, located in the Strait of Malacca, is in Krabi Province of Thailand. The beach is part of Hat Noppharat Thara–Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park.

Authorities have announced that the beach will be closed indefinitely, because tests performed during the four month closure earlier in the year found the ecological damage to be far more extensive than previously thought.

The director of the office, Songtam Suksawang, said that the beach "was completely destroyed, along with the plants which covered it," and that reopening would not occur until the ecosystem "fully recovers to a normal situation."

The beach is especially popular with tourists.
