#7 of 10 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.

    Amazing beach with clean water and good temperature. You can rent kayaks, climbing on the cliffs (for the adventurous) and take good pictures next to the caves in homage to the gods of fertility. The sand is very thin, has some shadows and you can shelter from the rain next to the caves. The only drawback is having no establishment for eating or drinking on the beach, the nearest one is about 5 minutes walk.

    Phra Nang is a great beach. Ao Phra Nang is actually in Ao Nang and it's not great. Lots of litter, broken branches and unkempt. Give it a miss  more »
