Nice place to visit and relax, but surely hyped. Nothing much to offer in terms of any activity other than enjoying in clear water and white sand beach, and probably some sun bath as well. More beach space is now getting crowded due to the lot boats parked there. This beach has some splendid view across the sea towards many... More

Went there by long-tail. 500 THB per person for return, inclusive of national park entry fee. The return journey is only at 3-4pm, so you'll be stuck for a long time on this island unless you're on private charter. Be warned. Completely overrun by people once you get dropped off at the main beach. We tried to make our way... More

beautiful, if not a bit spoiled by all of the litter. If 1000 farangs must shell out 10 bucks per person, each day, why can't the national park rangers get of their you-know-whats and do some damn cleaning. What a perfect place, although the sea lice are quite bad in february.

Nice pristine waters are to be found here. Grab your snorkel and check out the sea life. Pack a picnic, as there is nothing much on the island. Worth seeing and a much better standard of beach than the main Ao Nang beach.

There are many options to do Poda beach with tours like the 7island tour and the 4island tour. For us we wanted to go to a beautiful beach, relax and not get told we had to move on after a certain amount of time so we looked into just doing Poda island which is possible. We booked a long tail... More

This island is the epitome of why you come to Thailand. Gorgeous white sands and light blue sea. Well worth a day trip. We did a tour which ended with a barbeque on the island, to watch the sunset. Sadly it was cloudy that day, but we had witnessed stunning sunsets from Railay beach the previous day and knew it... More

A great spot to visit for the day for sun, sand, snorkeling or just swimming. Catch a long-tail boat from Ao Nang Beach where there are boat stations at both ends of the beach and it is a short 20 minute ride out to the Island. It can become quite busy during the high season so either go early or... More
