A holiday rental in Ao Nang: take in Thailand.

The small beach village of Ao Nang is located near Krabi Town in eastern Thailand. The area is characterised by long stretches of white sand beaches, terrific weather, beautiful green and turquoise waters, delicious local food, as well as ideal diving and snorkelling conditions. Offshore islands provide idyllic day trips; those wishing to spend a holiday on the beach need look no further. HomeAway has a variety of villas and homes in Ao Nang to suit any number of budgets and styles. A comfortable Ao Nang villa near the vibrant market, complete with modern kitchen and air conditioning, is just a click away, as is a accommodation in Ao Nang that is kid- and pet-friendly with convenient access to the beach.

Nearby Krabi is also a charming place in which to book HomeAway holiday rentals. Many enjoy travelling around the country when visiting Thailand and HomeAway conveniently has accommodations in Koh Samui as well as holiday rentals in Phuket.

Things to do

Soi Sunset Street:

The western end of the Ao Nang beach is a pedestrian alley lined with seafood restaurants, complete with beautiful views of the ocean and adjacent islands. Here, the seafood is truly fresh; with competition for business intense, visitors are advised to take a stroll and then decide where to eat.

Shell Cemetery:

This interesting museum is situated 5.5 miles from Ao Nang. Massive slabs made from millions of miniature fossils as old as 75 million years are on display here. The visitor centre provides further information and sells drinks and snacks.

Ao Nang Beach:

This long stretch of sand has a huge limestone rock face to the south as well as an imposing rock tower offshore. The water is clear, making it ideal for swimming and snorkelling. An array of open-air shops, bars, and massage parlours dot the beach.

Railay Beach:

This is one of Thailand's most frequently visited beaches, located to the south of Ao Nang Beach. It is only accessible via boat and the trip itself is beautiful. White sand beaches, glistening green waters, limestone cliffs, caves, and lagoons await those who make the trip.

Local Markets:

Both Ao Nang and nearby Krabi Town have lively markets. Fresh local vegetables and fruits as well as any number of delicacies are found here; the fish selection is particularly impressive. Weekends are lively thanks to an influx of vendors and visitors.

Diving:

Two islands are found just off the coast of Ao Nang Beach: Koh Podah Nai and Koh Podah Nok. The coastlines of these islands provide for some terrific diving and snorkelling. Here the coral is abundant and the fish varieties are eclectic. There are also underwater caves that are easily explored.

Weather in Ao Nang

The best and most popular time to visit Ao Nang is between November and April. This tends to be the most comfortable temperature-wise with averages around 30°C, and rainfall is minimal though the air is humid. May through October is characterised by heavy rains and hot temperatures; tourists may want to avoid this season.

Travel to Ao Nang

Most flights from Europe or the UK arrive in and depart from Bangkok airport (BKK). From here, Ao Nang is best reached via Krabi (KBV). A flight from Bangkok to Krabi takes 1.5 hours, while Ao Nang is located 10 miles from Krabi. A bus runs between the two towns or one could alternatively take a taxi for an affordable price. For those arriving at Ao Nang from Phuket, a daily ferry service gets visitors to Ao Nang in about 3 hours.

Comfortable & beautiful accommodation in lovely setting

5 of 5
This 2 bedroom villa was clean, spacious, well-equipped, as in the description. In fact there was more than we expected because the second bedroom has its own toilet/basin/shower, which was a bonus. Also, the two bedrooms are at opposite sides of the house, making it suitable for say two couples to share whilst retaining relative privacy. There is a large kitchen dining area in the middle of the house and a large living room at the front. For the sitting area on the front decking, a fan & mosquito coils to burn when needed were provided. These worked very effectively and hence made it lovely spot to sit out in the evening, overlooking the nicely kept gardens and pool, tastefully lit with coloured lights. The swimming pool was a real bonus and although quite small, was actually plenty big enough for all 3 of us to swim at once. WiFi & aircon were absolutely brilliant, I have to say! We’ve stayed in many places round the world and these two things often don’t work as well as advertised. Here however – fantastic! The location of the villa is a little remote and it is definitely too far to walk to / from Ao Nang, but Chris & Bee offer a lift into town (or to the local beach) once a day and a Tuk Tuk is 300 Baht to get back again. Alternatively, scooter hire is cheap and readily available, which was the option we chose. Considering this, we thought the location was actually great. There is a very small shop about 300m away that sold eggs, tins of tuna, crisps, snacks, soft drinks etc. and several larger food shops within only a short drive. Although, Chris & Bee made sure we had all the basic provisions that we might need for the first day or so, so no need to shop immediately. Chris & Bee were excellent and attentive hosts and were always available and willing to help with whatever we needed.

Amazing!!

We didn't want to leave, ms oy the villa manager was unbelievably helpful and friendly, we wanted to take her home with us. The villa is beautiful and in a perfect location just a short distance away from the beach. We will most definitely be coming back next year.
