Ao Nang Beach
Right in the centre of town, you’ll find a paradise you’ve probably stared enviously at on Instagram many times before. Ao Nang Beach is a 1km(0.6mi)-long stretch of soft sand lined with colourful longtail boats and overlooked by those famous limestone cliffs. The huge, jagged rocks with their luscious greenery protrude from the sea, and this landscape makes Ao Nang Beach the perfect spot to catch the sunset. Grab yourself a Chang (refreshing local beer) from a nearby shop and watch the sky flush with colour as the sun dips behind the sea. For some true Thailand magic, perch on one of the rope swings to the left of the main sitting area. They’re fit for two and, as the stars come out, you really can’t beat it.
