In 2000, Fox released The Beach, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Filmed on an exotic beach in Thailand, the movie is known more for its beautiful scenery and filmography than for its plot. Sure, it performed well at the box office, but most critics agree its performance had more to do with the shirtless DiCaprio than the movie itself.
Even though it was critically panned, The Beach did put its locale “on the map.” Since 2000, Maya Bay on Phi Phi Leh Island in Thailand has been inundated with travelers and tourists. What was once an island paradise has become crowded and even damaged.
Boats, jet skis, and the sheer volume of people visiting have clouded the pristine waters and even damaged the coral and ocean life. In an act of protection, the
Thai government has opted to close the beach for four months and put a cap on the number of visitors who can come each day.
