2 miles from Ao Nang, Krabi
Anchor in sand just south of the four islets in around 4-5 metres. The water is very clear, and the shallows are easy to spot. This is an excellent overnight stop in the northeast monsoon.
Dinghy excursions up the river are possible keeping close to the western shore at the entrance. Once over the bar, the water is deeper and the inlet is bounded by sandy beaches. The entrance is also suitable for speedboats and shallow draft vessels.
Inside the river are several jetties used by small local boats. On the west bank there’s a road, with local food stalls alongside, that provides access to the main road to Krabi Town and Ao Nang. The east side jetty is the transit point for all guest and staff vessels to Centara Grand Beach Resort on the east side of the Ao Nang headland.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only.
