Ao Nang Beach - A General Guide

By Pasit Kapilakan

Ao Nang beach is the most popular beach among tourists visiting Krabi, Thailand. This small fishing village of the eighties has earned a prominent place in the world tourist map over the last decade. Those who knew the beach in its earlier avatar would be amazed at its transformation.

Ao Nang beach is a beautiful white sand beach set with imposing limestone cliffs in the background. Even as the beach offers immense possibilities for water sports with its crystalline waters and abundant marine life, the limestone karst offers never-ending possibilities for adventure seekers. Despite the presence of all these, it is a wonder that the beach remains uncluttered during peak tourist season.

The coral reefs and rock formations offer many opportunities for swimmers, divers and snorkeling enthusiasts. The diversity seen in the marine life here is unrivaled. The clean and clear water is something every tourist would wish for in a beach. No wonder, those who visit the beach come again and again!
