Ao Nam Mao Beach-Krabe Province-Thailand

I know, I know, Thailand is the place of sun, right? Well not always, and apart from the well known rainy season, we do get what I call , Overcast days, from time to time.

Well my visit in December 2021 was just that, but made this beach no less a pleasure to walk along. The tide was also out! Nether the less, it was still warm and what I call "grey bright", so come along and see what a beautiful place I saw!

Only a few kilometres away from popular Ao Nang, Ao Nammao Bay is a complete contrast – a hidden gem not many people know about that’s still largely undeveloped.

Ao Nammao (also known as Ao Num Mao) boasts no mainstream nightlife or shopping centres. Only a few shops and restaurants are dotted along the main road which then leads on into Ao Nang. It offers a quiet, private, relaxing, peaceful vacation where you can base yourself to explore the Krabi region or simply relax Ao Nammao’s deserted beaches.

You can not walk along the full extent of Ao Nammao’s beach as it is naturally divided by trees and rocky outcroppings. This helps create smaller bays making each one more private and tranquil. The only noise may be a passing longtail boat taking people to Railay Beach ,Ao Nang or the prayer to call from the local mosque.
