Thailand: Tropical bay from 'The Beach' reopens

A Thai bay that was made famous by its appearance in the film The Beach starring Leonardo DiCaprio has been reopened after more than three years.

Maya Bay, on the island of Phi Phi Leh, was closed in 2018 after officials said a sharp rise in visitors had severely damaged the environment.

But now tourists are being allowed back due to the ecosystem recovering, BBC reported.

A maximum of 375 visitors will be able to visit at a time and swimming will be prohibited for now, officials say.
