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.

  • We got the boat from so nang, which was very easy to do. Lovely beach. Not as busy as raileigh or so nang. Especially after 3pm when the day tours leave. A small hut sells ice cream, fruit, corn on co...  more »
  • Poda is always a nice place, after 20 years is always well kept clean and with great beaches, it's worth spending the 400 bath asking to land.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Krabi Town

Most accommodations in Krabi Town are located to the southwest of the airport, south of Phet Kasem Road. A selection of boutique hotels jostles for position on the eastern side of the peninsula. The options here can differ greatly in terms of views and facilities, but they are all conveniently located close to the sandy riverbanks. If you're looking for something basic but comfortable, look at the guesthouses and hostels located on side streets just back from the water.
