Nopparat Thara Beach, Ao Nang
(3.4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Take a stroll along Nopparat Thara Beach, where you can dip your toes in the shallow water or picnic in the shade of coconut trees. Locals know the beach as Klong Haeng, or Dry River, because the water retreats pretty far at low tide, allowing you to walk all the way to the small islets that sit offshore. Though the beach attracts smaller and more diverse crowds than nearby Ao Nang, you will still find plenty of places to stop for a cool drink or a bite to eat. Arrange to visit Nopparat Thara Beach and other attractions in Krabi Town using our Krabi Town tourist route planner.

  • Again its a beach and if you enjoy long walks then by all means do take a walk on this beach. Its free... Enjoy the sunset which I sure did. Overall very relaxing site. Can be a little crowded during ...  more »
  • The right part of the beach is located in the shade of pine trees. The entrance to the sea is flat and Sandy. During low tide, you can go to a depth of 200 meters over the knee. Is popular among local residents with young children and students.

  • Compared to Ao Nang this beach is so quiet, especially on the opposite side to Ao Nang, I even found the sand was much softer. It's gorgeous when the tide is low, you can walk out to the little surrou...  more »

  • My 5-star vote is for the following: There is a small Tiki bar on the beach called The Frog Beach Bar, just in the area of Holiday Inn. The bar serves traditional Thai food with incredible cocktails. The best moment to arrive is around 4-5pm to watch the incredible and best sunset of Nopparat Thara Beach, listen to old reggae music while enjoying your moment or talking with the owner. The beach is less busy and less touristic.
  • You can enjoy here lovely sunsets and long walks during the long low tide. The beach is really long and less crowded than Ao Nang, but it is not so clean (Ao Nang also). Generally for me thanks to previous experience the water and beach were not great (not a good sand and water is muddy not crystal clear as for example near Phuket or on Koh Phi Phi). Good for two nights stay and then leave :-)
  • Less busy than Ao Nang, lots of places to eat, shop etc. The beach is lovely for a morning or evening stroll, sunsets are amazing and everything is relatively clean compared to places like Phuket. Lots of tiny crabs in the beach in the evening leaving beautiful patterns on the sand. There are some reviews by others that say the place is dirty, rocky, water is not clean etc, however I found the beach ti be quite pleasant. Its not quite Phra Nang or Railey beach but its still beautiful
  • Nice long beach. Not as clear as Railay. Low tide during full moon allows walking to the nearby islands. Camp site available.
  • This is a beautiful long beach, excellent for a long walk, with many bars and shops to stop at to cool down. Not the best though for sunbathing but still beautiful.
