Ao Nang Beach is a popular seaside tourist destination on the Thai mainland just over half way from Phuket to Krabi by road. With a large local Muslim population, you will find most restaurants offer traditional Thai cuisine plus popular Indian dishes.
It is well renowned for its scenic bay and white sandy beaches that stretch to the base of a prominent limestone range. Along the last 500 meters of the beach, you will find many beach massage huts and a few reasonable priced beach view restaurants.
Not only is accommodation available along the main beach road but you will also find other facilities such as diving shops, canoes for hire, small restaurants and boats for rent.
Ao Nang is a great place to visit many of the small islands with affordable boat hire rates. Longtail and speedboats leave either from Ao Nang near beach road or from Nopparat Thara Pier, which is only a ten-minute vehicle ride from Ao Nang Beach.
Islands and Beaches close by including Poda Island, Koh Phi Phi, the picturesque Hong Islands, and Railay Beach.
Ao Nang is only 30 minutes from Krabi International Airport and is a must visit. I visit here at least once a year. The Ao Nang to Phi Phi Ferry takes about one hour while traveling from Ao Nang to Railay Beach only takes 10 minutes by long-tail boat. I cannot stop thinking of going back here sooner than later.
Researching accommodation options for Ao Nang Beach using Google – in order of popularity – they are Ao Nang beach resort, Ao Nang cliff beach resort, Ao Nang cliff view resort, Ao Nang paradise, Ao Nang beach hotels, Ao Nang beach resort Krabi and the Ao Nang Princeville resort.
I’ve never heard of the Ao Nang Beach but it looks very relaxing that’s for sure. I really like the backdrop of the trees and mountains behind it. I plan to visit Thailand next year and this will be a sure stop!
There’s nothing that I love most that a place renowned for its scenic bay and white sandy beaches especially those that stretch to the base of a prominent limestone range. Nice that they have reasonable priced beach view restaurants for one’s pleasure.
For this write up, I am hearing the name for the first time. Probably that’s because I’m not used to Thailand. Thanks for letting me know that Ao Nang Beach is a popular seaside tourist destination on the Thai mainland just over half way from Phuket to Krabi by road.
Thailand is a very good and cool place to be. I agree with you that Ao Nang Beach Krabi is most peoples favorite beach in Thailand.
Such a very amazing beach. What I would give to be able to just be lazy around there, lying in one of the huts and then having the sea breezes lull me to sleep.
Ao Nang Beach is one cool place me and my family can unwind and make some new memories.. Your write up is a lifesaver…
I can see why you continue to visit every year. There’s a lot to check out between the beach massage huts, diving shops and tail boats. Thanks for this in-depth look of Ao Nang. Great photos accompanied by entries.
Indian cuisine is one of the most tastiest food ever. I would like to visit this beach too.
I like beaches especially those that are filled with white sand. It always fun to be on such beaches. Ao Nang Beach will be a fun place to relax.
There is a good surrounding with places where you can have fun. It’s good you shared with us.
Thailand had always been a wonderful country. Each country has pros and cons. This beach is very beautiful and it deserves to be seen. Thanks for posting.
