#7 of 11 in Beaches in Krabi Town
Soak in the picturesque Andaman coastline from Ao Phra Nang, widely regarded as one of the world's most scenic beaches. Just outside of Ao Nang, the beach's claims to fame include soft sand, untouched surrounding nature, and views of the distinctive karst rock formations. The warm, clear sea is excellent for swimming, diving, and snorkeling, while the vertical cliffs attract rock climbers. Despite being popular with tourists, the beach maintains a quiet atmosphere suitable for families. Nearby you'll find a good selection of small shops and eateries, as well as services such as massages and other beauty treatments.
