Island with Majestic Views
Jun 2020 • Family
Koh Poda or Poda Group Islands is under the administration of Haad Noppharat Thara-Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park. The Group Islands consist of Koh Poda, Koh Kai, Koh Mo and Koh Thap. They are currently popular destinations that can be reached by a rented boat from Ao Nang. Abundant and colorful coral reefs and the wonderful marine world make these islands ideal for diving and snorkeling.Moreover, when the water level gets low, Koh Kai, Koh Mo and Koh Tap, the three isles in this Group Islands will reveal and amazing sight of a white, fine sand bar that links the three isles together. This is a very pupular attraction ones should not miss if visiting Krabi sea.

Apart from the beaches in the east and the north, in the middle of the cape backed by limestone mountains in the west is also small and very peaceful bay.In the middle of Koh Poda, there is a pathway to the back beach which will also passes the one and only resort of the island, Poda Island Resort.

The northern beach of Koh Poda extends further from the eastern beach. In the middle of the sea here is a small limestone-based island which is a unique feature of Koh Poda.

The eastern beach of Koh Poda is the longest one; it is nice for swimming and sungathing, as well as making a stroll to as far as the small bay in the wetern side of the island

Perfect place for island hopping activity & lunch.
Mar 2021
Only 30 minutes by long tail boat from Nammao or Railay beach to the island. With the giant stone as background, blue sea & clear sand beach, Poda can be perfect spot for IG photo, lunch & relaxation. However, I don’t think it is good for snorkeling or diving & it is not convenience to get any water sport equipment here.

Small Paradise

I was not sure if I should go, given the negative comments on how dirty and overcrowded the island was. However when I arrived I was completely happy with my decision to go. Our boat dropped us off at the „back side“ of the island and there is literally nothing. No kiosk, no toilets, no mass tourism nor speedboats.

On the beach there was absolutely no garbage and the water was beautiful. If you swim out in the snorkeling zone you will see starfish, boxfish, barracuda, crabs , corals, parrotfish, and many more)

I walked to the orher side where the big rock is and there is food being sold (corn 80 thb, water 40 thb, chips 50thb).

Trip from ao namg costs 300 thb plus 400 thb national marine park fee. You will decide with all passengers on the boat when you want to leave the island again because everyone comes back with the exact same group/boat.

Beautiful small island Poda
Nov 2019
Beautiful small island Poda> Poda island is beautiful but very small. During low tide, u can walk between Poda island and Tup island as the water level drops, exposing a land bridge between the 2 islands. On my arrival, i saw there were too many tourists. A good idea is to come after 3 pm , when most tourists will already be leaving or have left .Its fun to try to walk around to the furthur part of the 2 islands, away from where most tourists are.

Poda island
Nov 2019 • Couples
Beautiful island, white sand, quiet and calm piece of land. The water were not too clear but you can still snorkel if you'd like.

To get there you take the long tail boat, for 300 TBH, plus another 400 for the national park fee.
Some of the boat drivers wil try to take the money to themselves , and will put you on the far side of the island and say they will take you back from there (to avood paying in the front beach).They don't want to be seen, this is a scam, don't agree. Besides, it wastes your time walking in the sun, instead of enjoying all your time in the main beach.

Chartered a private longtail from 1pm to 5pm. Got there as the day tours were leaving. We had the whole beach to ourselves for a couple hours. The beach is worldclass outstanding. Bluest of water and whitest sand! Amazing!

Do not remain on boat stand

If you come there with group (by speedboat, or longboat) with lunch break at Koh Poda, use your time going further on the shore and after cca 5 mins of walking you will find the beach like from the other world. No crowds of people, no noise, no rush, just beach, sea and you. The other item worth to mention are marks, showing how high was the water during tsunami in DEC 2004. You can imagine how difficult was to save bare livelihood that time.

Fantastic place, sandy beaches, azure water, untouched nature
Mar 2019
Koh Poda took my breath away with it’s beauty. So far, it’s the island with the most beautiful beaches in this part of Thailand. The water is cristal clear and the beach is clean. It’s also national park, and you have to pay the entrance fee (12$) to enter. As you have to take your garbage back to the boat (there are warning signs everywhere). We stayed at the less busy side of the island, and it was really great experience. Not many people, no food or even water, no music... just nature and you!
However, the sun is really merciless here, especially in March. Hence, you should better visit early in the morning, because there are no parasols and the shade is hard to find (no sun beds, either). If you don’t want to go to the other side of the island, also bring some snacks and drinking water with you. Preferably a lot of water!
And be mindful of jellyfish, the white ones are not easy to spot...

Beautiful island
Dec 2018 • Friends
Great island. You need to lay a park fee. We walked to the other side of the island (away from the food stand) and had calmer waters, less jelly fish and beautiful views. We went during high tide and it was great!

The scenery was amazing and the water was so warm. (In a good way, it was still refreshing). We stopped here on a 5 island tour from Krabi.
