This is one of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand. It is known as a party island but its beautiful scenery can still be appreciated by all types of travelers. Phi Phi is also less than an hour from Krabi town or Ao Nang, making it a great option for a day trip.
Ao Nang has semi-clear waters and is a very calm beach that is great for swimming and relaxing. The beach has beautiful views of the limestone cliffs and a very memorable sunset experience. There are plenty of restaurants and vendors along the beach path too, offering fresh young coconuts, smoothies, and snacks galore.
Railay Beach has been consistently nominated as one of the best beaches in the world. It is a bit difficult to get to - located on the mainland but only accessible via boat because of the massive limestone cliffs surrounding it - yet is very much worth the trip.
This beach is the hidden gem of the Railay Beach area. Boats to Phra Nang will often drop you off at Railay Beach, and from there it's only a short walk along the edge of the jungle and the resorts.
'Hong' means 'room' in Thai and you will quickly realize why these islands are named for this during a visit here. The Hong Islands are a cluster of small islands and most tours will let you explore two or three of them. The beaches are typically bays with crystal clear, calm water, that is almost completely enclosed by limestone cliffs, creating room-like areas of ocean.
This is a small island just behind the Hong islands. The waters are crystal clear and calm, and the beach is beautifully shaded.
Great for a day trip from Krabi Town. This is a very small island with clear waters and beautiful white sand beaches. There is great snorkeling from its beaches, and it's also often less crowded than other, better known beaches surrounding Krabi Town.
This is a very small island near to Ao Nang. It's a great snorkeling spot, with crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches, and an abundance of tropical fish. At low tide, a sandbar also emerges from the water making a path that links Chicken Island and Mor Island to Tup.
Why not witness where the famous movie was filmed while in Thailand? It's an absolutely gorgeous scene, and well worth a trip for the beautiful waters and white sand you'll find here, not to mention the tall, vertical limestone rock formation known as Koh Tapu, that looks like it is balancing on top of the water.
