Definitely the better of the 2 beaches, especially if you go to the far end. A beautiful clean beach with water as warm as my bath. A real joy to spend time here.

Personally this beach is my favourite in Ao-Nang since it is so peaceful and there are not so many long tail boats here. When the tide is out you can walk out to the small islands and snorkel there. This is the beach the locals prefer and that says it for me.

Very interesting beach with such a big change between the high and low tide. At the high tide great swimming right from the beach front, while at low tide it's interesting to see all the activities on the exposed sea floor. Best about it that's is more popular with the local people rather than tourists. At times lot of jelly... More

I prefer this stretch of beach to Ao Nang, its bigger, cleaner, quieter and has a great selection of traditional shops and restaurants along the front. All at a much slower pace.

Nopparathara Beach is definitely the quieter beach on the bay of Ao Phra Nang; compared to Ao Nang Beach. It is a beach with a magnificent sunset... Other useful tips: -There is a wonderful food court located outside of the Holiday Inn; worth checking out! - Sunscreen is essential as you will almost certainly get burned without it. - Drinking...

Very few people swim here as it has no wave at all. clean water and sand but looks like a lake. But the twilight is very beautiful. only you and beach.
