The Ao Phra Nang Beach is average. But the place is the best place to stay in Krabi. One can get long tail boats to all the nearby islands and also find a variety of day trips for snorkeling and kayaking. There are many shops and eat outs in this place.

The Ao Nang Beach is full of garbage and waste. The whole Ao Nang area is polluted by plastics, cans and other ugly stuff. Why should we ever come back to Thailand? It's a shame for a community not to stop its destroyable behaviour to its own environment. You cannot get the money from masstourism without paying the price for... More

enjoyed with the beach and sea surround with the mountains. I love there so much. The perfect time you should come on weekday. You will got the private filling more than on weekend.

Beatiful sand beach. Rocks are at the both ends- not too long. High cliffs quite close to the sand. You can take a kayak touring the cliffs and the cave. Reachable directly from AoNang beach by a long tail boat 10 minutes ride or, preferable at least by one direction ride, to visit the nearby Railay West beach. When landing... More

I love this beach! It was beautiful and romantic during the evening. With the number of tourists coming to the beach, I can say human polluted the area but you must never miss seeing the sunset on this beach. The best sunset view ever!

They are way too many tourists and boats at the beach, could be so nice without the boats at least. The amount of tourists at the beach should be limited.

Ao Phra Nang is the real name of Ao Nang beach, not to be confused with Phra Nang beach further south. You dont go to Krabi if you dont visit Ao Nang beach, because everything is here - souvenir shops, tour package booths, motorcycle rental, long tail boat rental etc. There is nothing to do at the beach except to...

The tourists have demanded a tourist town so that is what it has become, spent a few days there and was not disappointed. Plenty of mainstream holiday makers enjoying the coast and being overcharged for the privalige, everybody seemed happy with the arrangement. On the beach you will have to share with many others including the long tail boats. I... More

One of the nicer tourist towns I've seen in Thailand. Still has a bit of charme and is also not that busy all the time. Nicely located directly by the beach. Once can easily spent a few evenings there.
