Stayed here a couple of weeks and enjoyed it but having visited many places in Thailand its not up there with the best. The place is developed but relaxed. The beach isn't great and you can only swim certain times during the day due to the tide, so if you visit its best to get a hotel with a pool.... More

Tacky tourist trap of a town fronted by a dismal beach, I avoid it when I can but friends insisted on meeting there. Even worse than I remember, it has grown in size and decreased equally in charm. As an added insult prices for food, drink and lodging are ridiculously, absurdly high - consistently double what you'd pay for the... More

The beach is a bit disappointing during the day. It's a very thin strip of sand and not the nicest to lie out in.

I came here to see the sunset in the evening. It is quite beautiful moment. The beach looks good. It's not quite the beautiful beach. You can see the ships&boats.

A busy place with lots of tourists. Good selection of shops -- don't buy at the first one you visit, but have a good look around and compare prices. There is often a big difference. TukTuks are the way to get around and quite cheap -- again compare prices and always ask what it is going to cost before your... More

Yes the views are beautiful. However today as always the sea is polluted with sewage, especially at the end where Golden Beach Hotel is. This is such a shame, as it really is a beautiful spot.

I love the beach here. Krabi's people is very nice and helpful. There are many restaurants around here and shopping place as well. You can contact many agencies to take a trip to other islands.

If you are looking for a great beach then this place isnt for u...the beach here is not as good as those in Samui...but the cliffs n nearby islands make it absolutely stunning n picturesque....the beach rd has many fantastic restaurants, shops, souvenir shops etc...its a buzzing street n worth a stay if u r in Krabi.
