Krabi Beach for March
Phra Nang Beach was recently voted one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world and it's easy to see why. This beach can be accessed by a 20-minute boat trip from Ao Nang and features soft white sands, shallow calm waters and tall limestone cliffs which provide shade in the late afternoon. "Sandwich boats" pull up at the beach around lunchtime, full of baguettes, chilled sandwich fillings, fruit and drinks all available for very cheap prices. There are plenty of things to do here sunbathing, swimming, scuba diving, snorkelling, rock climbing, cliff-top jumping and even cave exploring.
Klong Muang Beach is one of Thailand's latest up-and-coming beaches. Situated north of Ao Nang, this beach has the closest coastal access to the Ko Hong protected marine park and features a long narrow stretch of golden sand dotted with rocks and driftwood. Although there are no bars or restaurants located on the beach, there are around ten restaurants located off the beach in Klong Muang. Due to the lack of facilities and cliffs, there isn't much to do here apart from sunbathe, swim and snorkel, making it the perfect place for a relaxing day out.
None of these beaches provide sun loungers or shades, so make sure you bring your own commodities if you need them.
