Ao Nang - Is the most "Westernized" beach in Krabi, While not quite as scenic as Rai Leh and is considered to be one of the main destinations and one of several key places to visit in this area, offering a great nightlife if you want to stay overnight!
The Pranang Cave Beach - Offers fine white sand and is on the southern tip of the peninsula. This lovely beach, recently voted one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. With amazing and spectacular scenery, it is popular for swimming, climbers and for snorkeling. Explore the cave with its local dieties or maybe cliff-jump off the rocks into the water. Phra Nang is arguably the finest beach in Thailand. A broad strip of white sand with massive cliffs framing each end of the beach.
Rai Leh West - A fine beach of white sand and shallow water, where most long-tails arrive from Ao Nang. North end of the beach is great for swimming. South end is OK, but a little rocky under the water. This beach is especially beautiful after sunset, when the silhouetted surrounding rock-faces give the place a totally unique and almost supernatural look. To the right, the bay stretches away past Ton Sai to the massive Sleeping Indian cliffs, so named because that is exactly what they resemble at night, it’s an uncanny resemblance, especially at night-time.
Koh Poda - Located just 8 kilometres offshore, (around 25 minutes by boat) from Ao Nang, Koh Poda is a small island no more than a kilometre in diameter, covered in palm trees and almost entirely encircled by a soft white sand beach. A coral reef lies about 20 meters from the beach with a variety of sea life. The irresistible combination of excellent snorkeling, scenery and soft sand make the island a popular choice with snorkelers and day trippers, but surprisingly, it's not crowded. With clean sandy beaches, clear water and schools of colorful fish in abundance, Koh Poda is perfect for diving, snorkeling or swimming.
Koh Gai/ Kai/ Hus Khwan or Chicken Island - Named after the strange rock formation which looks like the head and neck of an Ostrich, chicken or similar member of the fowl family. One end of the island consists of steep cliffs, while the other end has beautiful beaches along a peninsula. At high tide, this peninsula gets flooded, creating a small island, which provides excellent snorkeling opportunities in warm and clear water, rich in coral life this is a must see destination.
Koh Tap and Koh Mor - These two very small islands between Chicken Island and the Koh Poda islands are a great place for families or non-swimmers. A sandbar links Koh Tap to Koh Mor and Koh Kai which can be accessed only when the tide is low. The sea is also very clear very numerous fishes in the blue water. Snorkeling is a very common activity for the tourists. The beautiful white sandy beaches in these islands are also a feature which increases the scenic beauty of the Koh Tap and Koh Mor Islands. These islands are very easily accessed by boats. People traveling in a boat can get down on the beach where the sand is quite firm.
