Poda island can be reached during day light hours by long tail boat. Because it is now run as a national park, there is an admission charge of 200 Baht. Check with you travel agent before starting out regarding food and drink arrangements. The Beach on Poda is pristine with wonderfully clear and calm waters - also very safe.

Stunning from a distance but what a shame close up. There is rubbish strewn across what could be beautiful beaches around the island and considering it cost £18 to visit as it is national park you would think someone would clean it up. Visitors are asked to take rubbish home so it could be swept in with the tide It... More

It was heavily raining while we were there. No sun, strong wind and rain. The wave was way too strong, first time I had ever seen in my life where no one swimming in the sea and the beach was so colorful because of the rain coats. People were all shivering and gathered under the hut or any shelter on... More

It has clear water and clean beach. We reached island at 8:30 in the morning and there was no one except forest rangers. You need to pay 400 baht national park fee to put a foot on island. You can see this island from Ao nang beach, just 15 minutes travel by long tail boat. Better to hire charter boat... More

Everywhere on the island are rubbish and plastics. It makes sad to see, what people are doing to this place which has been a paradise for sure. Rangers are not interested in that either in money. You should not visit this place.

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
