Fans of the 1990s Leonardo DiCaprio flick The Beach might recognize this one as a prominent location in that film, but Maya Bay in Ko Phi Phi, Thailand has much more to offer than movie trivia. According to Forbes, Maya Bay ranked number one in a listing of beach destinations with the most sunshine, offering an average of 352 sunbathing days per year. Combine that consistent sunshine with breathtaking natural scenery, and you get one incredible vacation spot year round.
