When I watched the movie Mechanic: Resurrection I was happy to see that they have filmed a few scenes in Thailand. Like many others, I wanted to know where the gorgeous beach is located, so I did some research and found out that they have been filming around Phuket and Koh Yao Yai.

In the movie, they state that this is Koh Lipe, but I’m pretty sure it’s Phang Nga Bay.
So, this has to be Koh Yao Yai in Phang Nga Bay near Phuket and not Koh Lipe as stated in the movie. The beach looks awesome!

I have actually been pretty close the beach on Koh Yao Yai when we were staying at Koh Yao Noi. Read about our stay at Paradise Koh Yao.
