This beach can look nice in photos and a lot of the boutique resorts in the area are nice. But the beach is a real let down. There is trash everywhere. E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E. Even our small hotel was throwing their trash on the beach! The beach is actually quite vast. There is dark sand which is fine by me. If you... More

First of all, I'm a local there,Had Yao there are many hotel there but sadly there is nothing to do just relaxing walk on the beach and there are some seafood restaurants but I've never tried the food because my brother is fisherman. It's no point to try the food there. If you never, try it. The reason why the... More

dirty sand covered in garbage and while it looked nice - lovely calm waves lapping at the shore, the sea was full of jelly fish

There are few hotels around this beach. However, the beach is a bit dark sand which is different from other beaches in Krabi. You have to rent a car to move around this place because it is long distance from Krabi town.

Had Yao is not for everyone. If you're looking for lifestyle offerings, you better go Ao Nang. This area is basically a village of plantation, small towns and homes. It is vast land and getting from the main road to Had Yao Beach by road is about 20-25min, depending on how familiar you're. On certain roads there are no street... More

This place just has a few small resorts & very few amenities. The beach & sea by no means compare to the beauty of say Railay. On the plus side it is very quiet. I suspect a resort area waiting to happen but recession has put things on hold?

We stayed in Had Yao at the beginning of our holiday after we spent the weekend in Bangkok. It's a good place to relax and come down as it's very quiet & has a nice sunset. You can walk for ages and nothing will disturb you. We stayed at The Beach Boutique Resort, which was good too. There are nicer... More
