    Krabi Beaches  INFO

    Krabi's beaches are some of the best to be found anywhere and lie within easy access from the main town of Krabi.   Each has its own attractions to offer the tourist  --  be it simple relaxation in the sun and sea, seclusion, or the opportunity to indulge in water sports and other activities in the ultimate tropical paradise locale. Krabi's main beaches are as follows:

    Ao Pra Nang Beach
    Ao Nang or Ao Phra Nang, features Krabi's most developed beach. Fringed by palms, the long beach is backed by a wide range of accommodation including resorts, bungalows and guesthouses. Most travel services can be found here, and there is a good variety of restaurants featuring both local and international cuisine. Due to it's locale and range of services and accommodation, Ao Nang serves as the ideal place to both stay put and relax, or from which to explore surrounding islands and beaches.
    Rai Lei Beach
    The west side of the headland features a beautiful curved beach backed by limestone cliffs and jungle which provide contrast with the flat blue waters of the Andaman sea. The very picture of tropical paradise, it is a favourite place for climbers and water sport enthusiasts. Accommodation choice is surprisingly varied for such a small area - everything to luxury resort style to the most basic bungalows, and a few restaurants and bars provide the basic necessities. High season is busy, but it's also worth making a trip in low season when most activities can still be enjoyed, and monsoon weather changes provide spectacular views over the ocean. The east side of Rai Leh Beach is home mostly to mangroves, some accommodation and restaurants. It is also the most convenient spot from which to hail boat transport (unless you want to hike back over the headland).
    Tahm Pra Nang Beach
    Within 10 minutes walk of Rai Leh east, this beach lies on the outer most point of the headland and backed by a limestone cliff housing the Outer Princess Cave or Tham Phra Nang Nok. Swimming and snorkeling can be enjoyed off this pristine, white sandy beach, and from here it is possible to hike to the top of the headland to get spectacular views of the entire area.  
    Nopparat Thara Beach
    Located within 18 km west of Krabi town, this quiet beach lies within the Hat Noppharat Thara-Ko Phi Phi National Park and features a long sandy stretch lined by casurina trees. Popular with local Thai picnickers and those who like to swim and sun worship, it is also possible at low tide to walk from the beach across to some of the islands dotted in the bay. Great for a day visit.
