Sun Sea Sand

The limestone cliffs are stunning. Its a short boat ride away from Aonang. Secluded and nice beach to chill at and soak up the sun. Few cafes/restaurant for food and drinks.

The beach was beautiful and pristine. Except for the boats kept there it was clean and safe to swim.

Took a day trip here. The longboat ride was fun. The sand was soft and water clear at the easy beach. Don't bother venturing to the west beach - the tide is out most of the day which leaves behind a mucky beach. Lots of fun caves and paths throughout the island.

Its gorgeous here and water is so shallow you can walk out quite a bit. Some sneaky rocks under there though so maybe wear flip flops... or some snazzy aquasox. Wasn't over-populated at all so was a nice beach to walk.

Tourists abound and there is some trash, but definitely worth the trip. The limestone cliffs are stunning and it's remote and exotic location are very special. Accommodations range from pricy to affordable and rock climbing and nature are exquisite.

This is one of the nicest beaches I have been to! You have two areas to choose from and before 11 and after 3 there were barely any people around! Way less touristy than Phuket and stunning views and crystal green waters!

Nice location, must visit when in Krabi This is one of the beach included in four Iceland tour arranged from Krabi Ware shorts and avoid taking camera, use mobile camera with plastic waterproof cover, you have to get down from boat in 3 feet sea water at all places, you get soaked till waist for whole day.

I like to come here for a 3. I enjoy swimming, sunbathing. Convenience food and beverage outlets. The atmosphere is perfect for relaxing. Come here, do not forget to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat because the sun is hot. And do not forget to bring a camera to capture beautiful views.
