Hong Islands, Krabi Town

4.3
#2 of 15 in Nature in Krabi Town
Explore the secluded Hong Islands, part of the Phang Nga Bay Marine National Park. Featuring the characteristic sheer rock walls of the area, the main island is uninhabited, except for the birds, white-faced gibbons, and giant monitor lizards which can sometimes be spotted lounging on the white sand beach. The island's interior hides a lagoon, accessed via a dramatic cliff passage. Elsewhere, one island holds a sheltered cove home to many birds, and impressive sandbars peek out of the water at low tide. Watch for two decent snorkeling spots. To best see the islands, choose a kayak tour, which allows you to explore the mangroves that surround the islands, and visit the lagoon at low tide when the water changes color from a deep emerald green to a clear turquoise. Our Krabi Town sightseeing planning app makes visiting Hong Islands and other Krabi Town attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • A great-looking island but a very a lot of tourists, we find a place for a beach towel. An uncomfortable long Jetty which from speed boats. The sand very fine. Island nature reserve and alcohol free or not even beer. 300 bath per person for each forced to pay.

  • This is an island 10 minutes with longtail boat from Klong Muang beach in Krabi. The beach is lovely and calm, perfect for familys with small children. calm and a nice daytrip.  more »
  • We were in Krabi and decided to do the Hong Island long tail boat tour with Kingdom Krabi. We were a bit delayed to start off (but that was honestly just a slight hiccup in an otherwise fantastic day)...  more »

  • Beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters. You can enjoy small trips with boats around the island with a labyrinth of small caves. It is quite good to enjoy couple of hours there. There are few number of small beaches around the island but not so easy to get to them by walk or swimming.
  • Awesome island. Liked it more than phi phi island. Awesome beach and water. Mesmerising white sand. And blue lagoon and limestone caves are worth the visit.
  • Great spot but a little over-used. Too many people and boats. Go early or Choo an off day. Basic Thai toilets. Short (600m) nature walk, well sign posted, behind main beach. Can hire plastic kayaks and paddle to lovely internal bay - but boats will take you there too.
  • Beautiful small island, good alternate to avoid crowd like in Phi-Phi island or other touristic islands nearby. Must dive in beautiful blue lagoon on the island. No food or other outlets available on the island hence make sure you carry enough water and food with you
  • Nice place to visit with family , lover or mate ( wife is optional 😉) You may spend 1 to 3 hrs. + other 3 islands One can either go with a group or rent a private speed boat (recommended) Which is more convenient Can spent time on islands as long as desired Which you may not able to do with a group Will cost you a bit more but worth every penny , I enjoyed the snorkling part more than anything , enjoy ! You only live once 😉 ..

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.
