Visitors to the Krabi area will spend relaxing days on one of the 80 outer islands easily accessed by local longtail motorboats. Most visitors will stay in the town of Ao Nang which has several excellent mid-range hotels and many wonderful restaurants lining the beach. In addition to the offshore islands, there are several spectacular beaches to the north or south of Ao Nang which can be easily accessed for sunbathing and snorkeling.
