“Beach and Island paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

A must visit when coming to Thailand. Central area for visiting the many island in the Andaman sea. Beautiful scenery great weather, clear blue seas and sandy beaches.

So many activities to do and see.
Just a 35 minute journey from Krabi Airport.

Avoid Phuket, come here instead.

“Do not visit it on a tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Ao prahnang is absolutely beautiful, with its rock in front of the beach and white sand. It kept its charm, because there are not much bars or restaurants or beach chairs. Perfect place for a relaxed day at the beach. If you go on a tour, you will see it on its worse aspect. Crowded high tide beach with plenty of boats waiting for their guests and no remaining place to swim or lay down. Then I will advise you go there by yourself with a longtail boat for a day, not with a tour.

Great little bars and restaurants hidden in the tree line.
Great beach away from most of the crowds.

“Nice view”

I wouldn't say that this is the best beach in Thailand but it is okay. There's a lot of souvenir shops all around.

It was lovely but very touristy. Had a great lunch. Beware the monkys at the far end of the beach tho.
