This is a beautiful beach to visit and a welcome break after busy Bangkok. We assumed that our next stop ko Tao would be even prettier, but it actually wasn't. Ao Manao is quiet and clean with beautiful surroundings.

The beach is very clean and well-maintained due to its location in military base. Highly Recommended for anyone visiting the nearby Prachaup area.

Ao Manao is so calm. But the beach is not as white as others, perhaps it was located near the mouth of the river.

We went on foot. A bit far but doable. At the entrance of wing 5 you have to register. We didn't have our passport with us but got in anyway. The museum is closed, so is the mountain. You can only climb it on long...More

We've been visiting Ao Manao (Wing 5 of the Royal Thai Air Force) for 3 years now. A large un-extraordinary hotel but with spacious clean air-conditioned rooms overlooking the private bay. The tv in the rooms only has Thai channels and the wifi can be...More
