Krabi is the best place in Thailand to take your family island hopping. With 154 islets and islands, it certainly does pay dividends to do your planning ahead. Facing a wealth of choice, we have earmarked the top island destinations for the whole family.
Ao Nang Bay
Take your kids on an amazing adventure here at Ao Nang, where the whole family can enjoy many different activities such as rock climbing, kayaking, snorkelling, and walking along the scenic shoreline. Ao Nang is also a great spot where you can enjoy legendary one-day island-hopping adventures to picturesque destinations including Poda Island, Tub Island, Railay Beach, Maya Bay, Phra Nang Island and many more.
Ao Nang Bay is packed with plenty of hotels and resorts to choose from, but if you are looking for a place where you can simply relax, take your mind off of things, and not worry about keeping your kids entertained, Centara Ao Nang Beach Resort & Spa Krabi is a great option!
Phi Phi Island
Phi Phi is Thailand’s superstar tropical setting, and one of the country’s top destinations. It is actually a group of six islands, with Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh being the most popular ones. Moreover, Phi Phi Leh is the home of the gorgeous Maya Bay, where the famous movie The Beach was filmed.
The group of islands can be visited from both Phuket and Krabi, and is just perfect for a sip of fresh coconut while soaking up the sun with your loved ones. There are also many activities for you and your kids to enjoy, including Pum’s Thai cooking school classes, visiting the exotic Viking Cave, rock climbing, and shark watching!
Visit an elephant sanctuary
The whole family will love coming face to face with these gentle giants in their natural surroundings. Krabi Elephant Sanctuary offers a home to retired and rescued elephants, who have worked in the logging and tourism industries. This is an eco-friendly and sustainable project, so be aware that riding is not permitted on any grounds.
As part of a package, you will have the opportunity to walk, feed and bathe with these fascinating creatures, while learning their fascinating individual histories. This promises to be a meaningful and memorable experience for the whole family to share.
