Quieter and prettier than Ao Nang

Clean sandy beach with plenty of shops and eateries but not as busy as Ao Nang and also seems prettier as do not have the man made wall running along the back of the beach.

Nice long shady beach. We walked almost every day to Noppharathara beach and take a Tuk Tuk back to Aonang beach (appr.3km one way).

If you're looking for a quick getaway from the crowded Aonang beach a walk to Noppharathara Beach is worth it :) . It's a good walk.. around 30 minutes but once you get there is quiet , there is no much people. If you get hungry there is a lot of snack places in front, restaurant as well . I... More

If you are looking for calm day to spend on the beach side, that's the one! Really enjoyable and calm if compering with Ao Nang beach which is fully crowded with people.... This one takes you back to the movie " The Beach" :) Beautiful, natural, harmonious! Just one suggestion...on the street above the beach where are bars, shops and... More

We were strolling around the area and we saw this beach, there's a lot of litter in the sand. Sadly, this beach is not maintained properly. We didnt stay there that long and move on to another place.We saw a lot of tourists walking by the beach, few were bathing.

Very quite and very peaceful beach but not good for swimming because distance from beach and sands to sea is full of little crab and we can't walk to reach sea. Then we could not swim. Just take sun bath and collect some beautiful scallop! :)

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
