really pretty nice beach on this side of the island, Nice rocks jutting out into the sea, pretty clear water, a bit of trash, but not extensive.

Amazing beach location with a short long tail boat trip from Ao Nang. Chilled out vibe an opportunity to grab food and drink. Can hire paddle boats to explore the rocks and snorkel from the beach, love this place when visiting Ao Nang

It a nice secluded island, not too crowded like the more popular ones. Options for things to do like rock climbing & stand up paddling. Expensive to stay within the island as hotel are bit more expensive than usual
