The Most Popular Beach Of Ao Nang In Thailand

Formally Ao Phra Nang (“Princess Bay”), Ao Nang is the most popular beach town in the Krabi province of southern Thailand. It was originally a backpacker hotspot but now moving slowly upmarket as the airport brings in higher flyers. While not quite as scenic as Rai Leh, there is a good range of cheap accommodation, many good restaurants, easy transport and plenty of travel agencies, making it a good base for exploring Krabi.

The town itself is small; a 30-minute stroll takes you from one end to the other. Given that floating buildings are impractical and sheer cliffs don’t readily lend themselves to development, this paradise won’t be paved over anytime soon. By road, Ao Nang is 20 minutes from Krabi Town and Klong Muang Beach and a minute or two to Noppharat Thara Beach. Via the sea, Railay’s beaches – including Ton Sai – and a grab bag of small, intimate islands are nearby. Pick a direction and give your waterborne taxi 30 minutes. A watery world of adventure waits.

Orienting yourself in Ao Nang is easy: almost everything is located either along the beach, which runs west-east, or along the Airport Road (Hwy 4203) which goes up north from the east end of the beach. Longtail boats arrive on the beach near the junction of the two roads; these longtails, though, create a problem: the level of noise pollution arising from an endless stream of undampened boat motors during high season is substantial.

As long as visitors are ever increasing this problem will continue to worsen and detract from the beauty of this beach. Additionaly the water in the beach area is rather murky, again more so during high season, due to the lack of any filtering system for the waste waters of the ever increasing number of hotels.
