Krabi and especially the area’s most famous beach Ao Nang, has developed fast into youthful and modern holiday destination. Ao Nang offers different options for hotels, restaurants for every taste, shopping and a lot of activities. For example scuba diving, snorkeling, rock climbing and canoeing.
The whole area is surrounded by high vertical cliffs and the scenery is really breathtaking! Scuba diving is very popular in the area. Phi Phi Islands with the famous Koh Bida Nok and Koh Bida Nai are located only 45 minutes away by boat. The King Cruiser wreck, Shark Point and Anemone Reef are also close by.
Koh Haa Yai, Hin Daeng and Hin Muang, which are known as one of the best diving sites in Thailand are situated south from the Phi Phi Islands. They offer divers the chance to see untouched soft corals and huge amounts of sea life starting from tiny seahorses to big manta rays and on some occasion’s even whale sharks.
It is also possible to dive the Similan Islands from Krabi.
