The mountain trek takes 2 — 3 hours but is well worth it if you are fit and healthy.

This is my least favourite beach of Krabi Province because there is a quarry at the top end and so the little road running through the area has lots of lorries travelling back and forth. Klong Muang Beach does have stunning views and lovely sunsets and this beach is strewn with excellent resorts such as The Sheraton and Sofitel.
There is more of a village atmosphere here than TubKaek, but again, come here if you want peace and tranquility in a luxury setting. Noppharat Thara is a 5km long sandy beach, which you can walk to from Aonang Beach. It is split into two halves by a river. The main beach itself has very few resorts and is a favourite of Thais who come here to sit under the trees with a picnic, but there are plenty of guesthouses in the village nearby which is a good location for long-stay travellers and budget-conscious expats.
Noppharat Thara beach is wonderful for walking at low tide and has lovely sunsets too. There are also some really good local seafood restaurants here.
Nopparat Thara Beach is 18km from Krabi Town and 28km from the airport and is a 2 minutes drive from Ao Nang or a nice walk. The quietest and prettiest part of the beach is beyond where the longtail boats dock, it is a lovely strip with a beautiful steep cliff as a backdrop and is great for swimming all year round. The view across the whole 3km wide beach is stunning especially at sunset, in fact it is one of the best sunset locations on Thailand.
Aonang also has a vibrant live music scene that plays until 1am.

There are also sunset cruises and booze cruises run from Aonang which are enjoyable too. Ao Nang is also an ideal location to set off on a Krabi Sunset Cruise, a late afternoon and sunset trip on a genuine Chinese Junk. No list of the best beach locations in Krabi province is complete without Railay. Railay is a beautiful peninsula between Krabi Town and Ao Nang, on the mainland, however, you can only get to it by boat due to high cliffs cutting off access. This area is extremely beautiful and increasingly expensive, however, you can find some cheapish accommodation and some really fun nightlife too.
There are three beaches on the peninsula, Tonsai, still with its hippy vibe and home of many rock climbers, Railay West, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and Phra Nang Beach, also totally beautiful.

This area has some really cool bars and great seafood restaurants though. Be aware that you are in a tourist area on the Railay Peninsula so everything will be more expensive than the mainland, but it really is one of the best beach locations in Krabi Province, in fact probably THE best!
It is possible to come here for a day trip if you want since it is only 15 minutes by boat and costs less than baht each way. It is possible to walk between all beaches in less than 20 minutes, although getting to Tonsai from Railay takes a bit of effort. In low season very few boats go from Ao Nang Beach. At Tonsai Beach there are 3 main three draws: the world-class climbing opportunities, the secluded location and the laid back chilled bars playing old school reggae.

This is the place you come, to learn the art of reclining and hanging out with local dreadlocked Thais. The beach is a little rocky but still nice too. The crowd is young, but unlike Ko Phi Phi, the atmosphere is mellow. As with all beaches on the Railay Peninsula, the only way to get to it from the mainland is by boat. Read the section above to see details on that.

Tonsai is cut off from the other beaches on the Railay Peninsula, but at low tide, you can walk around the rocks or there is an hour-long jungle route if it is high tide. Railay West is a beautiful beach of white sand and shallow water and is great for swimming and sunbathing. At dusk, there is usually a game of beach volleyball and football going on and at sunset, everyone comes out with their cameras as it is simply stunning at this time.
Due to the limestone cliffs at either end of the beach, this place is one of the most beautiful on earth. It is a shame that over the last 10 years the building work has turned parts of this area into a concrete jungle but hopefully there will be an initiative to replant some trees in the near future. However, despite this, Railay West Beach is still a stunning location and worth stopping off for 2 or 3 nights at least. It has fine white sand, massive cliffs framing each end of the beach, and an epic cave.
There is only one hotel there which is the 5-star resort of Rayawadee. Phra Nang Beach can be reached by walking to the far end of Railay East and following the footpath around. Phra Nang beach gets very busy every day but is not polluted by the noise of jet skis or partying as you might find in Phuket. The cave is host to a shrine to fertility and is a unique photo opportunity in itself if you want to see dozens of giant wooden penises!! There are two words to describe Koh Jum Island.
