The Andaman Coast is the west coast of Southern Thailand, which includes plenty of tropical beaches and islands.
- Ao Nang - Krabi's most developed beach. Fringed by palms, the long beach is backed by a wide range of accommodation including resorts, bungalows and guesthouses, and Krabi's best selection of restaurants.
- Had Yao (Long Beach) - the last untouched beach in Krabi Province, and perhaps the most spectacular with its views of Jum Mountain and Ao Nang's cliff walls.
- Rai Leh (Railay) - Thailand's rock climbing Mecca, a craggy peninsula with several small beaches
- Ton Sai - Cheapest bungalows in the area. Preferred by backpackers away from the hordes of tourists and an easy walk to Rai Leh.
