Nopparat Thara Beach, Ao Nang

(3.4/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • 如果不是出海去皮皮島要在這裡上船,我們不會注意到這個地方。這邊的景色比奧南海灘美得多,而且安靜人少,不過整個甲米的海灘退潮以後都有很厚的淤泥,聞起來臭臭的,按理說這邊的污染應該不會很嚴重啊,所以早上漲潮的時候來會讓人覺得很不錯。 
  • Is about 2 km long. The start, along the Krabi Resort, has several restaurants without direct access to the beach and is in the works. The water quality is not appealing. At the other extreme, in the natural park's finest sand beach and a particularly beautiful scenery with many rocks covered with vegetation and a marina alongside with boat movement a little intense. Clean water in this part. Sea without waves across the beach and excellent temperature.

  • It was definitely where we find the warmest water on our ticket for Thailand, the beach allows us to enter tens, or even hundreds of metres into the water without losing foot. Hard to turn back the temperature of this water. Very good!

  • 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.
