Ao Nang is the central point of Krabi Province and it's attractions. Just a few years ago this was still a tiny fishing community but in recent times has grown into a major international tourist destination. One of Southern Thailand's most beautiful destination, with spectacular scenery, pristine beaches and a warm, friendly atmosphere.

This small corner of The Kingdom has it all - beaches, bays, islands, diving, local culture.

Ao Nang Beach

Not the most beautiful beach in the area, but certainly the most popular. As most of the hotel and resorts are located in Ao Nang, it's an easy walk down to the beach directly from your hotel. With the beach road lined with shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, Ao Nang has devleoped into one of Thailand's most popular beaches.

Railay Beach

Railay Beach - Krabi, Thailand

Lined with limestone cliffs and golden sand, Railay Beach is just a ten minute boat ride from Ao Nang. Railay Beach is truly a paradise and the natural beauty surrounding the bay is unrivalled in Thailand. To escape the ever-growing crowds in Ao Nang or Phi-Phi, Railay is perfect. Although only 10 mins away from Ao Nang by longtail boat, the atmosphere on Railay is on another level. Evenings on the bay are spent with good food and good company!

Phra Nang Beach

The next bay over from Railay, Phra Nang Beach is famous for it's cave, a good spot to swim out of the sun. This is great place to spend a day relaxing on the beach and there are plenty of beach bars and cafes to get a cold drink.

The shallowest of the bays and beaches around Ao Nang, Nopparat Thara Beach is a popular spot for familes with young children. The beach road is lined with small cafes and bars where you can get a snack or a drink while the little ones are playing on the sand or in the warm water.
