Tham Phra Nang

This stunning beach boasts some of the bluest waters in the whole of Asia, with white sandy beaches that can be seen from miles away. This beach plays host to the exquisitely titled ‘Princesses Cave’ which is half hidden by the surrounding landscape. On the opposite side of the beach can be seen gigantic chunks of sky-facing rocks – each of which has been weathered in to shape by the wind and waves.

Railey Beach

No list of Krabi’s beaches could avoid the mention of the world renowned Railey Beach. The shoreline is filled with coconut trees that frame the calm blue waters, and the gargantuan rocks that stand tall on either side of the beach are enough to make one feel as if they were the only people in the world. The popularity of this beach has increased over the past few years, and it’s all but impossible to get to the location on foot, meaning that only the most passionate are willing to make the car and then boat journey.

Koh Hong Krabi

Boasting the clearest sea water throughout the entirety of Krabi, Koh Hong beach plays host to vast numbers of fish that enjoy the safety and seclusion of the calm waters. These friendly sea-dwellers will often swarm around people swimming by the shore for no other reason than to take advantage of a warm body. Just south of the beach is an area filled to bursting point with trees and bushes – all of which boast their own variety of colors and scents.

Tub Khaek Beach

This beach is considered hard to find by many of Krabi’s local residents, but once you make your way there the sight is nothing short of spectacular. The simplistic appearance of the beach does nothing to detract from the calm and soothing atmosphere that people can’t help but acknowledge. Even the trees seem to lean in the direction of the water; seemingly to provide shade for those lucky enough to make their way to the location. The water is clear and clean, and the sand looks untouched by humankind.
