“Dirty but pretty view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Poda Island was my least favorite in Krabi. The view of the rock is beautiful but the beach is the dirtiest one I have seen in Thailand.

“One of the best spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Koh Poda is one of the best spot in Thailand. We loved the landscape. The water is "just the same", which means "just GREAT". But the limestone rock gives a special taste to the surroundings... spectacular!

“it's very clear water but alot of stone could hit your legs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

i was there for sun baht and swimming but unfortunately too much boat and small rock that could hurt you all the time when the wavy cumming, and seem like this island for tourist people who come for lunch and they leave alot of trash on the island , This island is the only one have that alot of monkey about lunch time we saw them alot and they are really not afraid of people and try to steal food from your hand and stuff. but to be honest the weather is night island is beautiful and the water are so clear.

“Great Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Really nice island with a small park. Crystal clear waters make the fish visible. Takes about 20 minutes to reach by long tail boat. The Poda Pub ( a shack) serves various drinks including Beer. The views are very nice.

Poda is the best of the islands
