I discovered this beach when I came back from Four Islands Tour. The boat dropped us at the port at this beach, and I walked back to Aonang Beach instead of taking a van. It was great. The sunset was amazing and many people were camping near the beach. There were sidewalks along the beach at roadside. If you were... More

Most go to Aonang town expecting great beaches, but will be sorely disappointed. The beaches in Krabi are excellent , no doubt about it. But those beaches you seen in travel brochures or websites are at least an hour away by long tailed boats or half an hour by modern sleek speed boats. So why do I rate this beach... More

A nice beach but with too much litter lying around. It's possible to walk/swim to a near "beach-island" in high tide and in low tide it's no problem to walk there but then every else is doing it so it becomes a bit crowded because it's small. No idea to snorkel because the water is very murky.

Quieter than Ao Nang Beach! Just a 10 minute walk from Ao Nang Beach. Has a few stalls where you can get a drink or bite to eat.

If you want to escape the hiatus on the buisness street and Ao Nang beach, walk a few hundred meters and walk along Nopparat Tara Beach instead. Also try the local bamboo hut restaurants on the other side of the road, good food and prices.

This beach is very long...a totally different scenery from ao-nang beach. You have to walk far when it is low season coz the water recedes. But it's really nice to take a stroll along the beach. You can see natural rocks surrounding the beach.

A big and quiet beach near Ao Nang (just a 10 minute walk). There are some shops nearby where you can buy drinks and snacks.

Lovely broad beach very long way to sea at low tide and sand flies can bite! Worth a visit but there are better spots on the Islands. Thais seem to like this one for picnics and the shade given by the large fir trees.

From Ao nang beach, I have a brisk morning walk to Noppharathara Beach. It is quiet here with few visitors. But I found the beach average and unimpressive. There were some stray dogs occasionally barking at each other near the walking pavement of the beach that broke the silence.I could not see the morning sunrise from here just like Ao... More
