We went early-ish on a Sunday morning late November and were basically the only people there. It was spectacular. It looked like how I picture Heaven. Being essentially totally alone on that beach, with the sun shining, swimming in the warm ocean...it was like a...More

Longtail boat trip from Ao Nang beach for pennies, about 25 mins. The beach is in a lovely scenic bay with golden sands and a few hotels and bars lining its edges. The walking street is full of shops, restaurants and bars and whereas not...More

Sure, it looks nice and there're lots of limestone caves and Clift around Thailand. If your looking for a lot of food options, shops and lots of people on the beach, finding it hard to sit on the beach without 100 people next to you,...More

The beach was beautiful but overcrowded. If you look at the surround of the beach you can see the waste. The are a lot of plastic bottles, bags and so on everywhere. 200 meters from the beach to the inland you can see the dump....More

The sand is full of shells and stones and it's very drunk. The other 2 beaches in the area are nicer.

This is small beach bounded by cliffs on each end. It is a cozy area to sunbath and swim. It is busy where the longtail boats pickup riders, but otherwise there are many quiet spots. Some nice restaurants overlook this beach. You can rent kayaks...More

Incredible sunset to see seated on the beach besides the infrastructure of the "island". The main street has a strong and bad smell and it's better to have lunch or dinner in your own hotel. We liked to stay at Sand Sea.

I did not see any lockers but if you only take a small amount of money for food and drinks and leave valuables at your accommodation. Bags and towels etc seem pretty safe on the beach, we left ours but we were only swimming... More

Echoing the above - the long boats are the typical transport. As others have mentioned, these are on the "roughing it side". While that's one reason I enjoyed it, be aware that these are not the same as the luxury boats... More
