What people are saying about Phra Nang Beach

We had the most amazing experience at the two snorkelling sites that our guide brought us to, I've never seen so many clownfish. The plankon weren't as amazing as I hoped, but going into the water with them made them much more visiible. The BBQ was great also, plenty of food with second helpings for everyone. The whole day ran really smoothly.

Our trip was great and the guides we were with were fun and engaging. The weather wasn’t perfect but we had a great time nonetheless. If you’re only in Krabi for a few days this is a great way to see more!

We didn't have much sun but it was still nice! The team is super nice and a big thank you to AG for his kindness and his smile!

Amazing experience and awesome guides! Thank you to 'Sit' who was our guide, you were fantastic! Sorry for not saying goodbye.

Loved it! Bioluminescent plankton was the highlight but the entire tour was great :)
