The scenary is stunning, the beach dazzling white, the cave mysterious...and low season means rainy weather (enjoy the beauty of thunderclouds), choppy sea (nice body surfing) and less, less, less tourists (but still enough company to enjoy all the beauty).

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...

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.

(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.
