Krabi Province has a number of amazing beaches. Here are the ones I recommend you try…
- Ao Nang Beach, Krabi
- Railay Beach, Krabi
- Noppharat Thara Beach – this is the Thai locals beach, and for good reason – it has none of the commercial activities taking place on Ao Nang Beach and it’s just an excellent place for a picnic and to watch the waves. At the far north end of the beach is a park where there are some excellent places to eat and great sand for kids to play in. During low tide you can walk out to and explore the small islands that are 100 meters off-shore. One of our all-time favorite places not only in Thailand – but, in the world.
- Koh Phi Phi (island) – there are a number of great beaches on the islands of Phi Phi off the coast of, but part of Krabi province. It is a few hour trip to get to Krabi, but many consider it worth it. It has been built up quite a bit since the tsunami of 2004. There is a lot to do – but, a small place and overbuilt in many tourists opinions. Many tourists are skipping Phi Phi and just coming to mainland Krabi. It is slower paced, nearly as beautiful, and much less expensive.
