lies on the Krabi coast, a 15 minutes drive north of the main beach
center at Ao Nang . Here is a long,undevelope beach with a well-established
village with shops and simple restaurants. For most of its length,there is
nothing on this beach but coconut plantation . The Beach has fine golden-white
sand , and reasonably deep water that is good for swimming. The northern end of
klong Muang Beach is used as an anchorage by passing yachts.
The south of Klong Muang has a few backpacker beach cottages , remainders from Krabi's not-so-distant discovery days. A river cuts this beach off from the Ao Nang area ,requiring a 20 minutes drive through the back roads
Klong Muang Beach in Krabi has to be one of the most memorable. Blissfully
tranquil and refreshingly unhurried, Klong Muang is the picture perfect,
laid-back alternative to the tourist trap of Ao Nang. that the crowds of
Ao Nang would have us running right into the arms of this hidden gem.
Klong Muang has only
recently shown up on the tourism radar – its natural bucolic beauty marries
well with the tranquility of the area and for a slice of ‘real’ Thailand it is
hard to beat.
Shopping, dining and nightlife here are all decidedly modest but that’s the very charm of the place. If you want full-on tourism go to Ao Nang or Phuket;
if you want a peaceful retreat Klong Muang is the place for you.
