Poda Island, Ao Nang

4.3
#1 of 19 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.

  • One of the best beach I had ever visited. View is mind blowing. Make sure you include this place in your tour plan. First half of thr day would be best, might get crowded in evening. Water is so clean and you wont need any invitation to take a dip. You can walk around the beach. There is a shop and toilet on the beach.
  • One of the best beaches we visited. Visit early in the morning when you do island hopping. That way, you get to beat the crowd and enjoy the beach peacefully..
  • Beautiful. White sand, Crystal clear water.
  • One of the most beautiful and unspoilt places I have ever been.
  • Nice w McD and online service
