White-sand beach, good for relaxing

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... read more

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

There is not anymore restaurant, only small kiosk, from you can buy hot soup or drinks. And package visitor have their own lunch with... More

While at Ao Nang I joined a 4-island travel package (longtail boat) for 380 bahts (high season more expensive, you should be able to get same package for 300 baht during low season) for a full day tour that commenced from 8.30 am till 3 pm. I was picked up at my hotel together with more than 30 others along... More

A very nice island, white sand, nice beach and outlook. A nice place to take a swim then relax under the shade of the trees behind the beach and take in the scenery. Drinks can be purchased from a small shop nearby. The problem is all tours use the island for lunch, so it gets very busy around that time,... More

We visited this island by hiring a longtail boat from Ao Nang and based on my experience that would be the best way to visit the islands near Ao Nang - it provides you more comfort, can spend time in a relaxed manner and also can get to the islands earlier than others. Try getting here by around 8.30 -... More
