Ao Phra Nang Beach Vacation Packages

Nestled between tropical jungle and the shimmering Andaman Sea, this Thai beach ticks all the boxes for those looking for an idyllic sun-drenched getaway.

Typically shortened to “Ao Nang” by visitors and locals alike, Ao Phra Nang Beach is hailed as one of the best oceanfront locations in Krabi. Offering unspoiled scenery, plenty of outdoor activities and accomodadion to suit all budgets, Ao Nang is a destination for both adventurers and those looking for a relaxing getaway. 

Many backpackers and budget travelers favor the area because of its affordable hostels and low cost of living. However, the oceanfront is also lined with upscale resorts that are perfect for a luxurious vacation. The beach is within easy walking distance from most lodging accommodations.

Spend the day sunbathing on the pristine beach fringed by palm trees or swimming in the ocean’s temperate waters. For a taste of adventure, go sea kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving or snorkeling. The area is renowned as a rock-climbing destination thanks to the dramatic limestone cliffs that dot the oceanfront. Even if you aren’t a seasoned climber, you can take lessons at one of the area’s many schools to master the basics. 

While lounging on the beach, take advantage of the vendors offering local cuisine and massages. Away from the beach, explore the town’s many bars, restaurants and souvenir shops. Although the area has recently become slightly more commercialized, Ao Nang still has a feeling of untouched natural beauty. Make sure your camera batteries are charged; almost every aspect here is a photo opportunity! Monkeys swing through the trees, and blue waters and white-sand beaches create the perfect portrait of paradise. 

Thanks to the perpetually warm oceans and balmy weather, Ao Nang is an ideal vacation spot year-round. It’s also a gateway to explore nearby islands like Ko Kai, Ko Lanta and Ko Phi Phi, which can be accessed by ferry. 

Ao Phra Nang Beach is a 20-minute taxi or shuttle ride away from Krabi International Airport.
