4.6
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Prachuap Khiri Khan
Scenic and undeniably Thai, Ao Manao boasts clean sand and shallow waters against a backdrop of rising fog and lush green mountains. A former military base, the beach still retains traces from its past, including a landing strip, planes, military vehicles, armed guards, and a museum. Let the resident population of monkeys entertain you, but think twice about feeding them as they can be unpredictable. Amenities include umbrellas and chairs, and nearby restaurants dish up Thai specialties. Discover how to plan a Prachuap Khiri Khan trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • The shape of the bay means you always get out of the surf or strong winds, just move round a bit. Nice beach with trees around the edge of most of it, there are places to eat and also a petrol station...  more »
  • A beautiful large Bay, left and right framed by mountains, with a few outlying islands. The pristine beach, as one imagines him. Only a few people, so that amn beautifully can relax in peace. Lounge chairs, food and drinks can be rented or marketed.

  • A beautiful Bay located on a military base of the Thai air force, but it is possible to access no problem leaving his identity. The passage in the base is already a visit in itself, then the arrival to the Bay offers an amazing panorama.
