150-kilometre coastline

Krabi’s distinctive limestone cliffs line the region’s 150-kilometre coastline, biting out of the sea like incisor teeth. The rocks play a central part in Krabi’s tourism industry, too. Sunbathers come from all over the world to bask on the blonde beaches beneath them and climbers come to scale them.

Koh Phi Phi

Visitors are also lured by the endless opportunities to go AWOL for a time. The Ko Phi Phi National Marine Park, just off the Krabi mainland, is dotted with semi-deserted and uninhabited islands, and boat trips run to them regularly from the mainland. The national parks in Krabi’s interior also let you fall off the radar. These nature reserves are contoured with rock pools, waterfalls, thermal springs and caves.

Ao Nang

Of course, you don’t have to hideaway in Krabi. If you head to Ao Nang, you’ll find a small but perfectly formed beach resort with a collection of restaurants and bars that bat above its size. But, despite being one of Krabi’s best-known resorts, it’s not bowed to all the trappings of tourism. The 2-kilometre beach is still largely sunlounger free, and traditional Thai long tail boats, shaped like bananas, bob in the waters close to the shore.
