Often considered the most beautiful beach in Thailand, Railay Beach is a magnificent stretch of white sand surrounded by huge rocky peaks rising from the water… Inaccessible by land, Railay is only served by boats from ‘Ao Nang, which further adds to its charm. Ideal for resting in a heavenly setting, it is also perfect for climbing or simply enjoying the relaxed atmosphere that reigns in the beach bars.
Ao Nang Beach
Very lively, Ao Nang beach combines the beauty of the karst landscape typical of the region with an abundant offer of restaurants, bars and other services. Easily accessible from the center of Krabi, it is also an excellent base for visiting the neighboring islands, in particular Koh Lanta and Koh Phi Phi. Pleasant and very suitable for families with young children, it is definitely the most popular of Krabi’s beaches.
Very close to Ao Nang, Noppharat Thara is a pretty three-kilometre beach bordered by filao trees. The part closest to Ao Nang is the most developed, while the beach across the river is relatively wild and only accessible by boat or a small dirt road. Very popular with locals, Noppharat Beach is quiet and perfect for a day of swimming, sunbathing and picnicking with the family!
Klong Muang Beach
Located north of Ao Nang, Klong Muang Beach has only been known to tourists for a short time. As a result, it is quite well preserved from mass tourism and allows you to spend a quiet moment facing the superb Andaman Sea and the Ko Hong Islands. Only luxury resorts have settled in the area, adding to the “exclusive” atmosphere that emanates from Klong Muang.
Tham Phra Nang Beach
Wedged between the famous Princess Cave and a huge rock python, Phra Nang beach is simply magnificent. Accessible from Ao Nang in about twenty minutes by boat, it is made up of a thin strip of fine sand bordered by huge rocks where climbing enthusiasts have a field day. Lie down on the sand, dip your feet in the water and close your eyes… you’re in paradise!
Tub Khaek Beach
On Tub Khaek beach, unlike most beaches in the area, there are no impressive cliffs or other natural wonders. Simply a very beautiful beach where the water is transparent, the sand white and fine and where the trees delicately shelter bathers. Calm and pleasant, it is the perfect beach if you are looking for a place to relax without distraction.
