Maya Bay is closed to tourists from Friday June 1st | Video

(Updated: )

From Friday, Thailand's Maya Bay, made famous in the 2000 movie, "The Beach", will be closed to tourists. The idyllic island cove will be shut down for four months to give its fragile ecosystems a chance to rest and recover from the hordes of tourists. It's a move similar to the closure of the popular island of Boracay in the Philippines, which was closed off in April.
