Poda Island, Ao Nang

4.2
#1 of 15 in Nature in Krabi Town
Unwind in the impressively quiet and charming atmosphere on Poda Island, 25 minutes by boat from the beaches of the Raileh peninsula. The small limestone island circled by a soft white sand beach is ideal for a little relaxation as you look back across the water. Enjoy a trip out to a coral reef--just 20 m (65.6 ft) offshore--for some excellent snorkeling opportunities and underwater photography of the marine life.

  • A pretty Beach, but a few thing you should take into account. The beach is worth the journey as soon as the morning and move to the right in relation to the reception of the place on the left far far away boats in rantautumisalueellta. In the region is relatively peaceful, a great beach. The boats upstream of the place is full of chaos. We went to the rautautumisalueella buying the water half-day countries and there were hundreds of kiinalaisturisteja, eating at their own eväitään stryroksilaatiokoista and blokkaamassa which on taking photos. And more came on board full time. We abandoned the area very quickly. In the WORK, which was now what it was. By being aware that the above, permit a nice beach day with a fine beach.

  • Nice beach and clear water ruined by too many tourist. It's a disgrace that people are leaving garbage behind. Bring what you can find back to the mainland and dispose of it there! Please show some respect.
  • One of 4 islands. Worth visiting although full of people on a sunny day
  • Surprisingly clean for how many tourists visit the island, very small cozy island. Bond Rock is pretty cool.
  • Nice sandy beach with lots of room for everybody. Takes about 15 mins by speedboat or half an hour by longtail.
  • Poda Island, also known as National Marine park... though this island has additional charge of 400 baht per person, you can not avoid it.. if you buy the package of 4 island tour, expect you WILL have to pay additional price to get to this island, else, you can't sit alone in the boat for an hour. My trip organizer managed to bring delicious vegetarian food, sweet water melon and a cake to fill your stomach. You can not litter on this island, all items must be taken back to the boat (even if its garbage, which your guide would manage!) Didn't have to explore this park completely, but its definitely worth 400 baht you pay to visit.
