Maya Bay to close to tourists

One of the world’s most famous beaches, Maya Bay, will be closed to tourists as authorities attempt to reverse decades of damage done to the region’s marine environment.

Now groaning under the burden of an incessant average flow of 200 boats and 4,000 pleasure-seekers a day, the beach will be closed to the public for four months, to allow its battered coral reefs and sea life to recover.

The closure will take place from June to September, during the island’s low season, in order to give its coral reef time to recover.
