A choice of dive sites that are amongst the world’s most fascinating, a diverse marine life, crystal clear waters, colourful corals, and stunning limestone formations dominating the horizon make the Andaman Sea a tropical paradise for diving enthusiasts. Shark Point, Anemone Reef, the King Cruiser shipwreck and the Phi Phi Islands are suitable for one-day dive trips from Krabi. The paradise islands of Koh Racha Yai and Koh Racha Noi, off the southern tip of Phuket, present thrilling drift dives with great visibility, while the Hin Daeng offshore pinnacle has vertical drop-offs of 60 metres and more.
With long stretches of salt-white sand spilling into crystal clear waters, towering limestone cliffs and jungle-clad interiors, the six islands that make up Koh Phi Phi truly are exotic havens. Phi Phi Ley, home to popular Maya Bay, Bamboo Island, Yung Island, Bida Nok, and Bida Nai are protected by their National Park status. Their turquoise waters, teeming with exotic marine life, make the Phi Phi islands a popular option for snorkelling and diving day trips from Krabi.
Within 10 minutes from the hotel by car, the buzz of Ao Nang, with its numerous shopping opportunities and great choice of restaurants, many of them specialising in fresh local seafood, is a must-see for many holidaymakers. Swaying palm trees and limestone formations share the landscape at Ao Nang Beach, one of the coast’s most popular beaches.
Phang Nga Bay owes its reputation as one of South East Asia’s most remarkable maritime landscapes to its emerald green waters, sublime caves and picturesque towering rocks. This national park in the Strait of Malacca consists of over 40 islands - including James Bond Island, named after being featured in the movie The Man with the Golden Gun. The island also appears in the later Tomorrow Never Dies. Phang Nga Bay is also home to Koh Yao Noi, an untamed island with breathtaking vistas.
Found to the west of Ao Nang and divided into two sections, Railay Bay is rightfully known as a world-class rock climbing spot. Whether rock-climbing or lazing by the beach, you’ll enjoy a stunning backdrop of crystal-clear waters and verdant cliffs. Railay Bay is accessible by boat from the shores of Ao Nang and Nopparatthara.
