5 miles from Ao Nang, Krabi
(SOUTHEAST KOH PODA NOK) Just north of the small island, a sandy bottom in 10-12 metres of water provides a secure overnight anchorage in the southwest season. It will be evident from your first sight of the anchorage why this group of islands is known locally as the ‘Chicken Islands’.
Each day tourists pass this area by longtail from Krabi, but anchoring yachts have it to themselves most of the time. Enjoy good diving and snorkelling around both the headland and the island. On the west side of the headland is a small beach with shoals of seargent major fish. Do not feed them! It’s a crime!
