One of Thailand’s most famous beaches and popular tourist attractions is to close, officials confirmed on Wednesday.
Plans to close Maya Bay were first proposed earlier this year, but on Wednesday officials from the Thailand’s National Parks and Wildlife Department confirmed the closure.
Currently around 4,000 tourists visit Maya Bay each day. However, when the beach reopens in September, the number of visitors allowed will be limited to 2,000 per day and boats will not be allowed to anchor at the beach, instead docking on floating piers located off the island.
Many of Thailand’s beaches which are located in national parks close between May and October.
However, Maya Bay, which was made famous for its starring role in the Leonardo Di Caprio movie “The Beach” has always remained open year round.
