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.

  • Arrived early the morning well before the tourists, and a few hours we were alone in the world as Tom Hanks in his film. White beach with Palm trees, turquoise and hot water. Magical, beautiful and wonderful place. We will be back that's for sure.

  • Wonderful island, pale sand and crystalline sea. On weekends or high season gets too full (Chinese tours). Take care to get the low tide it is possible to cross on foot to the next island and the visual is awesome!

  • Beautiful small Island. Perfect for snorkeling or just swimming or lay back on white sandy beach. Popular with local and tourists alike. Love it.
  • Crystal clear water (when calm), sunny and shady spots, nice reef with clown fish and bright stuff like that. 400bath national park fee at the entrance. Keep the place clean!
  • Best one out of the Krabi 4 islands. Make sure you make this the first stop in the morning, to avoid the crowds. Nice clean beaches and clear water.
  • 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.
  • The water is amazingly blue that makes you want to live here.
