Ehdottomasti yksi parhoista paloista Ao Nangin matkalla; jo yksinään syy matkustaa tänne. Kaunis ranta ja hyvät uintimahdollisuudet. Kannattaa kurkata luolaan sekä kiivetä laguuniin. One of the best beaches on the area. Beautiful limestones on the side, water is turquoise clear. Also check out the caves and the lagoon if you can. Didn't like that people were feeding monkeys though. Also... More

somehow all I can say about Ao nang beaches is that water is very warm, does not look clean, at least when I saw it. And a LOT of people everywhere

Might be paradise, kind locals, stunning landscapes & gorgeous beaches. Yet, all has been spoiled by rubbish. Plastic is seen everywhere and no one seems to even care. At the end of the big beach a sewer flows into the otherwise pristine sea. Monkeys are seen with cans and garbage. A very sad sight of an bygone paradise.

This island has extremely peaceful and clean beaches. Very nice place to relax. Several things to explore including the caves and the local shops. Besides, there is a rock climbing adventure near the beach. It is very safe and thrilling. You can also kayak or get a thai massage done over here.

Ao Phra Nang is a place where you have everything. In addition to the lovely beach, has a lot of trade, fair and restaurants around and the people are very friendly. The good mood and relaxation is something that is always present in Ao Nang.
