This island is the epitome of why you come to Thailand. Gorgeous white sands and light blue sea. Well worth a day trip. We did a tour which ended with a barbeque on the island, to watch the sunset. Sadly it was cloudy that day, but we had witnessed stunning sunsets from Railay beach the previous day and knew it... More

A great spot to visit for the day for sun, sand, snorkeling or just swimming. Catch a long-tail boat from Ao Nang Beach where there are boat stations at both ends of the beach and it is a short 20 minute ride out to the Island. It can become quite busy during the high season so either go early or... More

Select a sunny day, hire a long tail and visit Poda Island. It is a part of paradise: white sand, warm water, beautiful scenery, great colors. Worth to go. On the way back take the chance to snorkel around one of the other island (e.g. Chicken Island)

This island is THE BEST OF KRABI! Few people, clean water and peace. There is a lot of monkeys, lizards and colorful fishies. I have visited a lot of Krabi's islands, but Poda is really the best for me :)!

We stopped by the island during the 7 island hopping tour for dinner and sunset. It's very beautiful and facing right to the west where you can see how the sun slowly sinks into the sea, very memorable experience

I took a longtail boat from Ao Nang for 300 baht, coming back is included. But you should remember the number of the boat. We didn't pay any entrance fee to get to the island. Perhaps, that would be a good idea - money could be spent on cleaning the island from plastic bags, bottles and other traces of human... More

So far, Poda island national park was one of the nicest places I've ever been to. We arrived early morning and were the only people in there, so we enjoyed the crystal-clear water and white sand a lot! But unfortunately, during lunch time dozens of small boats and yachts arrived and the island got a bit crowded and loud. The... More

We also did a 4-Island tour, with this being one of the stops. What a circus. Yes...this was at one point a beautiful island, but it is now way over-sold and was crawling with tourists and trash. Would not recommend this place during high season. While the tourists completely trash the place, we also saw Thais trashing the place with... More
