About Ao Nang

Ao Nang is a small resort town and the busiest beach destination in Thailand's Krabi Province . Although development here has gone unchecked and become rather unsightly, the beaches, with their limestone headlands tied together by narrow strips of golden sand, are pretty likable. Boat trips are available to many surrounding islands. One of the most popular getaways is Railay Beach , reachable by a 20-min long-tail boat ride. The most popular activities in Ao Nang, besides lying on the beach, are nearby rock climbing, mangrove tours, and scuba diving. Try Poseidon Dive Center for a reliable outfit.

Popular Attractions in Ao Nang

Railay Beach
408 Reviews
Krabi’s Railay Beach is divided into East Railay, West Railay and Phra Nang. The beaches require only 10 minutes to travel from East Railay to West Railay. The beaches are connected by walking paths through large resorts. Railay Beach is a famous destination for rock climbing with its numerous rock faces and caves. Rock climbing is mostly concentrated in East Railay, where aside from ordinary practice walls, there are also mountainous rock faces on either side of the beach that make great challenging natural climbing sites. The turquoise water of the beaches make a trip to Railay a very special experience.
Hong Island
366 Reviews
The Hong Islands can be easily reached by speedboat or long tail boat from Krabi. “Hong” is the Thai word for “room”, alluding to a small gap on the north side of the mountain. Entering this gap by boat, you can see an inner bay surrounded by a large, limestone mountain, making it feel like a natural room. There are mangrove trees scattered around the bay and the water is clear and serene, creating a surreal atmosphere.
Ao Nang Beach
1,040 Reviews
Ao Nang Beach, about 20 km from the Town of Krabi, is a very lively beach in Krabi. The beach is located at the northern end of Ao Nang Bay and is situated by the sea. Over 100 elegant and comfortable resorts are scattered under the coconut trees by the sea. The beach extends to the foothills of the very famous limestone formations. At the end of the beach is a cliff with mountains and lush virgin forests. The amenities are convenient and easily accessible. Most visitors to Krabi come here. This is a great place to swim, sunbathe, stroll on the beach, and enjoy the sunrise and sunset.
Patong Beach
5,849 Reviews
Located on the west coast of Phuket, about 15 kilometers from Phuket Town, Patong Beach is very lively. Its overall shape is like a horseshoe. The beach sand is soft, the water is clear and the waves are small. You can rent a chaise longue on the beach to watch the sea, experience a variety of exciting water sports, and enjoy the delicious seafood in the stalls. In addition to the lively beach, the beach roads on Patong are home to most of Phuket's hotels, resorts, shopping malls, restaurants and a lot of entertainment and business facilities that will definitely make you feel interesting at night. When night falls, Bangla Street, illuminated by neon lights, is rather beautiful.
