A very beautiful beach that has been overrun by garbage and plastic. Locals do use this beach. Sadly they leave all rubbish behind...

We walked for miles along this nice and quiet beach. There are lots of cafes and restaurants along the road that runs alongside the beach.

This beach is probably better than Ao Nang beach but there are more rubbish and more people. But this is a beach where you can see more locals, this is where they go for picnic, swim and probably spend time with family. It is less touristy. maybe due to the beach itself being less attractive, but if you're tired of... More

So much nicer than ao nang beach which is crowded and noisy from the over developed road and endless long tails. For a bit of peace and quiet to enjoy the beautiful bay head 10 mins along the road from ao nang and come here instead. We couldn't believe the difference considering its just round the corner. We watched a... More

Nice beach but little far if you walking. In fact you have to walk alot. Very hot during day. Good for swimming. Not soo crowded and very peaceful. Take some snacks or drinks or fruit and spend little hours here!! Worth a Visit!!

It seems a bit cleaner and less jam packed than Ao Nang beach. We walk back at low tide across the bay from the delicious seafood restaurant Krua Thara - 82 Moo 5, Nopparat Thara Road, Ao Nang, Krabi Town - from there it's about 1.5kms to the Holiday Inn, and 2kms to the Apasari Hotel Krabi.

Less busy than the main Ao Nang beach, but a bit more tidal. Check not low tide at the time of your visit, unless you don't mind walking quite a way in to get to waist high water. More enjoyable than main Ao Nang beach but a bit further from the main stretch - about there or so kilometers.

Great beach, really long stretch of sand. Check the tide as it is much better to win when the tide is high. On low tide you have to walk almost half mile to swim.

We visited during low tide, so it was too inviting for a swim. Some parts of the beach were quite filthy and smelly.

Noppharathara Beach is one of the 2 main beaches in Ao Nang (the other being Ao Nang beach). From our hotel in Ao Nang, it was a quick 5 minute walk. Its not particularly beautiful, especially compared to the likes of nearby Railay, Tub, Poda or other islands. However, those islands require one to travel to by boat which you... More
