Beaches in Krabi

The beaches of Krabi are amongst the major attractions in Thailand. The entire west coast of the province overlooks the Andaman Sea. Some of the best beaches in Thailand like the Ao Nang Centara, Ao Siew Beach, Klong Muang Beach, Nopparat Thara Beach, Ao Nang Beach, etc. are located at this coastline.

Here is the list of 4 Beaches in Krabi

1. Railay (Rai Leh) - The Climber's Haven

4.5 /5 View 7+ photos

Known For : Rock Climbing Tham Phra Nang Cave View Point and Lagoon

Accessible just by boat, this peninsula of limestone crags is a beautiful destination for a laid-back rest in the middle of your Thailand holiday. An absolute best for rock climbers, Railay is a one-of-a-kind spot for active diving, kayaking and rock climbing; as well as just relax at your resort.

Best Time: November to March

2. Phra Nang - The Photogenic Cave Beach

This is a smaller beach in Krabi that can be reached through a cave from Railey Beach or a 20-minute boat trip from Ao Nang. It's incredibly photogenic for its pristine waters, rock faces, palm trees and breath-taking sunsets. It can get quite crowded during tourist season especially in the months from November to April. At the bottom of its limestone cliffs is Princess Cave that is dedicated to a fertility goddess. Just offshore are Koh Rang Nok island and Nai island that are great for snorkelling and kayaking.

3. Koh Kradan - Quaint Beach for Snorkelling and Kayaking

An island located in the marine national park of Hat Jao Mai, Koh Kradan is ideal for travellers craving tranquillity. It can be reached by private boats or ferry from Koh Mook or Koh Ngai island. Snorkelling and swimming here are great experiences, especially with the limestone rock structures that rise from the sea. A coral reef can be found 50 metres (around 164 feet) off the coast as well. Kayaking is popular here, and it would take you about 3 hours to explore the entire island. Although you can find resorts and bungalows for an overnight trip, keep in mind that there are no ATMs or nightlife at Koh Kradan.

4. Ao Siew Beach - A Pretty Blue Rendezvous

Ao Siew Beach is located on the western side of Krabi in Thailand. The beach is a small attraction surrounded by mangroves and coconut groves. It is a lesser-known attraction on Krabi Island. Here, the waters are mostly calm with gentle waves that are perfect for a swim. After spending a day at the beach, watching the seas change hues as the sun sets beyond the horizon is recommended to visitors.
