  • Very small stretch of sand and rather crowded but the water is pristine and very blue, right in town and can get a boat to many islanda  more »
  • We stayed at Aonang, so every day we went to this beach to catch the boats and go to the Islands in front. The beach I don't like, not even the sea water! If you get a chance to visit other Council!

  • But one must go to Railay beach by taking shared boat ride from Aao Nang beach. It's 100 bhat per person each way. Lot of eating options around the beach including burger king , McDonald and local pub...  more »

  • It's a nice beach but it's very close to the main road. It's more for an evening walk than for all day swimming. There are some great resorts near the beach. Great for watching a sunset.
  • Krabi has many beautiful beaches and most of them are located on the paradise-like islands that you can explore while island hopping in Krabi. However, Krabi has a popular holiday destination with its beach town Ao Nang, which has also many beautiful mainland beaches to offer.
  • The beach not good for enjoy. Water not clear. Many big waves. Small beach. Ao Nang city only 1 touristic street with many indian restaurant. There is better to take a really complet hotel with pool and activities.
  • I don't like this place much, not a good place for swim as it has a lot of long tail boat but there is a more beautiful beach near here, just go ahead about 2km( I remember it is called a national park), that is a very beautiful beach, long and clean and soft sand(not white but so soft touch)
  • Good beach, though lots of hustlers selling stuff on the beach but they’re friendly. Good mix of western and thai food on the main strip.

Where to stay in Ao Nang

If you with to relax and indulge yourself, try the beach resort hotels that line the promenade in Ao Nang. Farther north you can find even pricier and more exclusive resorts with more space and facilities. The arterial road leading down to the coast offers the best range of accommodations, with comfortable, mid-range hotels close to the sea, and budget options available farther inland. You'll also find mid-priced rental apartments along many side streets leading off the main road.
