12 miles from Ao Nang, Krabi
A secluded anchorage and a useful stopover on the way to or from Krabi. It is acceptable overnight in the northeast monsoon season or in very calm weather. The best anchorage can be recognised by a mushroom-shaped rock in the middle of the small indentation facing south. Approach from the south until the bottom shelves to about 15 metres; anchor on the sandy bottom.
Towards the western end of the bay lies a spectacular spit of white sand, which gives excellent access for swimming, exploring and beachcombing.
To the north of the sandy spit is an enticing bay, particularly good for snorkelling and diving. Anchoring is not advised here since large coral heads, rising from depths of about 20 metres, fringe the bay. It is best to take your dinghy from the recommended anchorage or else swim from the beach.
