Beaches · Islands · Scuba & Snorkeling
Visitors usually come back from their holiday in Krabi Province deeply impressed by the region's natural attractions, which include white-sand beaches, extensive coral reefs, numerous waterfalls, caves, and more than 130 islands. The area encompasses some of the most popular destinations floating just off the picturesque Andaman Coast, including the six islands protected as a national park of impressive natural beauty. Most tours of Krabi Province include an exploration of the vertical karst formations jutting from the sea, a dramatic backdrop for water-based adventures. Although mass tourism in the province increasingly exerts pressure, many of the islands here retain a relaxed feel and offer a bit of solitude in a heavenly tropical setting.
