Ao Thalane (Thalane Bay) Tours

Ao Thalane (Thalane Bay)
Krabi is famous for its towering limestone cliffs, idyllic beaches and peaceful mangrove forests, and Ao Thalane (Thalane Bay) represents one of the most beautiful mangrove forests in all of Thailand. On this stretch of coast 12 miles (20 kilometers) from Krabi Town, dense mangroves shroud the karsts and cliffs, hiding caves, small inlets and secluded lagoons. 

The best way to explore Ao Thalane is with paddle in hand. Shaded by the canopy, kayaking through the winding network of mangrove roots gets visitors close to nature, where it’s possible to spot kingfishers, crab-eating Macaques, river otters, herons, monkeys, monitor lizards and snakes. It’s an ideal place to escape the bustle of Ao Nang or Krabi for a day spent surrounded by only the sounds of nature.

Practical Info

Generally, mid-tide is the best time for kayaking in Ao Thalane, as it will be possible to explore more areas. Low tide, however, offers better access to caves and better chances to see the critters living on the muddy banks.
Address: Khao Thong Subdistrict, Krabi, Thailand
