The Krabi coastline is one of Southeast Asia's most stunning destinations, and it's revealed in all its glory here. From the towering cliffs of Railay beach to the sheer turqouise beauty of Phi Phi and the dive spots offshore. Come to Krabi and find yourself a gorgeous secluded island beach, enjoy the hospitality of the five start resorts in Ao Nang, or get stuck into climbing, kayaking and diving.

The province is located at the shore to the Andaman Sea and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Most notable are the solitary limestone hills, both on the land and in the sea as islands. Rock climbers from all over the world travel to Ton Sai Beach and Railay Beach to climb. These beaches form part of Krabi's Phra Nang Peninsula. Of about 154 islands belonging to the province, Ko Phi Phi Leh is perhaps the most famous, as it was the set of the movie The Beach. The coast of the province was badly damaged by the tsunami on December 26 2004.

Hat Noppharat Thara - Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park Covering the areas of Tambon Nong Thale, Tambon Sai Thai, Tambon Ao Nang and Tambon Pak Nam, Amphoe Mueang, Hat Noppharat Thara - Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park has an area of 242,437 rai in which 200,849 rai is water. There are 3 distinctive kinds of forest here: moist evergreen forests, mangrove forests and peat swamp forests.
