Ao Nang Overview

Ao Nang is a central point of the coastal province of Krabi, Thailand. The town consists chiefly of a main street, which is totally dominated by restaurants, pubs, shops and other commerce aimed at tourists. The main beach is used by sunbathers to a certain extent, but there are hundreds of longtail boats that offer access to other beaches on the mainland and on nearby island.

There are a number of scuba diving centres, most of which offer basic diving courses. If Diving Ao Nang, consider the local islands which are easy to access and relatively uncrowded compared to many of the Phi Phi Islands sites. Climbing is another activity widely available through centres in Ao nang although most of the climbs are actually in the areas around railay, Tonsai and Phra Nang beaches.

The main beach at Ao Nang is the main departure point for boats to a number of places, including the nearby resort of Railay (or Rai Leh), which cannot be accessed by road, and the islands Poda Island and Chicken Island.

A lovely little resort.
