And Maya Bay isn’t the only Tai beach included in the list. FlightNetwork.om rated the world’s best beaches. Thailand’s Maya Bay, on Koh Phi Phi Ley came in at #9. Maya Bay has been closed for rehabilitation since the middle of 2018 and is scheduled for limited re-opening some time in 2021. Tourists and boats will be limited to less than 500 visitors a day instead of the up to 5,000 that were trampling the famous beach before marine park officials decided to close it down.

Railay Beach, also in Thailand’s Krabi Province, is #14 on the list.

Thanks FlightNetwork.com, someone had to travel the world and do the research.

“Our world is filled with seemingly endless beaches, which can make it challenging to decide where to invest your time. To simplify this travel conundrum, we have created an extensive and heavily researched list of the top 50 beaches in the world. This list will help you choose the beaches that are sure to fill your vacation with natural wonders, vibrant cultures, and the optime of relaxing vibes.

In order to develop the World’s Top 50 Beaches, we tapped the wisdom of over 1200 journalists, editors, bloggers and agencies from around the world, who eat, sleep, and breathe travel. Through this ultimate collaboration, we were able to craft a catalog of beaches that is so thorough you’ll never run out of stunning locations to explore.

This diverse list includes everything from the astonishing exposed cove of Greece’s Shipwreck Beach, and the pristine heart of the Great Barrier Reef at Whitehaven Beach, to the karst cliffs and see-through waters of the Philippines’ El Nido beach, and the ethereal green beach of Hawaii. Get ready to dip your toes into the sandy goodness of Greece, Turks and Caicos Islands, Thailand, Chile, Micronesia, the Bahamas, and more, as this collection of beaches will inspire you to embark on an extended vacation.”
