If you want quit the busy of Ao nang, here's your getaway. The beach has a long sandy coast and can even walk to the nearby little islands when the tide is right. Tidal waves here are smaller and smoother than Ao nang. It's in the national park area, so you can expect no loud music or much of commercial.... More

really quiet beach. You'll see more of the locals here just trying to relax. Shops along the beach don't look as vibrant as the shops along Ao nang beach.

This is a stunning national park beach location. Visit at high tide to walk the spits out to nearby 'islands'. Lots of beautiful, safe swimming beaches. A few resturants and stalls nearby, as well as the boat pier for trips further out.

We went to the beach on Sunday due to monsoon, it was high tide but we enjoyed a long dip in the sea and then had lunch in one of the beach restaurant. Quite beach, not a very long stretch

We took a short walk to the beach. Nice to watch the waves come in. Kids had a great time picking sea shells. Unfortunate for us, it started raining. So our time on the beach was cut short. Will head here again when back in Krabi.

We ended up going during low tide and you have to walk almost a kilometer into the water to be able to swim. This is a beautiful beach on Krabi island though and worth a visit.

We took a tailboat from Aonang and it stopped us nearby this beach. It was lowtide and the water was just crystal clear. The beach is quite flat so at low tide, you can walk very far out.

Very long great for a walk and scenic evening pictures, not good for sitting on. Great for shells, not much to do in the evening if you are staying on that side.

This beach is used for loading and unloading of tourists for island tours. Its filled with long tail and speed boats. The sand is course and water is relatively shallow. Also quite a bit of litter floating around in the water and washed up on the sand. Better off doing an island tour and spend the rest of your time... More

Adjacent to the Ao Nang beach, this beach is much cleaner and less crowded. However, this is away from the commercial area and one has to do some exploring to find any food option. Also, did not see any change rooms / wash rooms (might have missed though). However, one should avoid the southern part as it becomes rocky and... More
