Beautiful island, white sand beach. I have been there about 5 times but it's pity nowadays many tourist destroy nature. It's not beautiful and natural much like before but it's still beautiful.

Take a stroll along the beach and sit on the bench provided to enjoy the perfect scenery with winds blowing through your hair. Do it at night!

Staying at Ao Nang allows you to be close to shopping, restaurants, and the beach. My favorite beach getaway location in Thailand.

The bay of Ao Phra Nang stretches all the way from Nopparathara Beach to Ao Nang Beach is beautiful beyond words and was not crowded at all; during the low season in June. We did walk along the beaches; enjoying the sights and sounds of the waves, lazing around in the sun and dipping in the warm turquoise water! Having... More

I wasn't impressed with Ao Nang. A long beach but right up against the road with the tacky shops all along it. There is no heart or soul to the place and everyone looks a bit disappointed... Go somewhere else would be my advice...

This beach was so wonderful! Easy to get to via taxi from Ao Nam Mao and Krabi Town. Great restaurants near by along common street or nicer ones on the beach. 7/11 nearby as well to purchase drinks and snacks; we did that and no one seemed to care. You can also pay for a massage or manicure/pedicure on the... More

I like the place, even it is very touristic. It is the starting point to take tours to the islands. "4 islands" is amazing, you can do snorkeling and eat traditional Thai fruits. Beaches in Ao Phra Nang center are not as good as the ones you can reach by a 30 min walk.

There are three listings on TripAdvisor with reference to AO NANG. I shall elaborate the differences here for the benefit of all TAs and guests. (1) Ao Phra Nang - Ao Phra Nang when translated means Phra Nang Bay and this bay which we are speaking of refers to Ao Nang in general. Geographically, the area includes Nopparathara Pier at...

Compared to other beaches in thailand, this falls a little short. It's kind of a launching pad for best beaches in world.. Mountains around looks great. But color of the water is not that clean compared to other nearby beaches.
