There are numerous islands that belong to Thailand and many of them are in the Andaman Sea and in the Gulf of Siam. Idyllic beaches that offer a tropical paradise can be found on these islands, each with its own unique characteristics. Phuket is the largest island and famous for its full moon parties. Phi Phi Islands offer a picturesque setting for relaxation. Coral Island, Racha Islands, Lanta Islands, Khao Lak, Similian Island, Tarutao, Koh Samui, Pattaya, Koh Chang and Koh Kood are just a few of the other famous islands here. Krabi, located a three hour journey from Phuket and set amidst the blue waters of the Andaman is a stunning island worth visiting.
Here, visitors can relax and enjoy the pristine nature which includes a jungle covered interior, limestone caves and waterfalls which have also made it a thriving habitat for wildlife. Much of the island has been demarcated for natural preservation, making it relatively more pure and less cluttered than its counterpart Phuket.
Phra Nang Beach is located between Railay Beach and Ao Nang Beach. The location is just as beautiful and offers a more private locality compared to Railay. This beach also has an old folklore attached to it; there is a limestone cave here that local fisherman believed to be the home of a sea goddess. One can reach this beach by long tail boat and there are several options for refreshments and light snacks if you decide to spend the whole day.
There are some interesting things to do while on holiday in Krabi such as visit Railay beaches and caves, go island hopping around the 200 or so islands around Krabi and head to such attractions as the Thung Teao Forest Natural Park, Wat Tham Sua, Klong Thom Hot Springs, Khao Khanab Nam and Susan Hoi the shell cemetery.
