Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Ao Nang Beach is in the centre of Ao Nang, which is the most popular holiday resort in the Krabi region. Here you can relax on a sun-lounger under the trees, including palm-trees, while delicious food and drinks are brought to your table on the sand. Other attractions include outdoor massages and numerous restaurants, bars, cafés and shops along the promenade. Whilst swimming in the sea or walking along the beach you have a breath-taking view of the cliffs of Ao Nang in the background. If you would like to explore the area surrounding Ao Nang Beach you can hire a canoe or take a trip by long-tail boat to the other islands and beaches.

Ao Nang Beach - Popular holiday beach with lots to do

Ao Nang is the most popular and busiest holiday resort in the Krabi region and Ao Nang Beach is the main beach. This long beach is ideal for walks and at two central places you can watch the hustle and bustle when the water taxis here, the so-called long-tail boats, arrive and depart to bring holidaymakers to the neighbouring beaches and islands.

Ao Nang Beach is not only a good starting point to explore the Krabi region, it also has a lot to offer itself. In the south-eastern part in particular you can relax and swim with a fantastic view of the sea, the islands on the horizon and the enormous cliffs of Ao Nang in the background. There are several beach bars and restaurants and you can hire sun-loungers as well as enjoying an outdoor massage. Those who want to explore the beach from the water can also hire canoes and stand-up paddling boards here.

Behind Ao Nang Beach is the main road of Ao Nang where you will find numerous small shops where you can buy souvenirs, clothing, beach equipment and many other things. In addition there are many restaurants, cafés and bars here, some of which have live music in the evenings and in others you can play billiards. Hundreds of people gather at Ao Nang Beach in the evenings to enjoy the fantastic sunset from the promenade and the beach.
