Ao Thalane or Thalane Bay is one of the most beautiful mangrove forests in the whole of Thailand. About 20km from Krabi Town this section of the coast is covered in dense foliage that wraps all the caves cliffs and amazing shaped Karsts.
This area of Krabi is perfect for cruising around in a Kayak. The small inlets, caves and hidden lagoons can be discovered on kayaking tour, the shade from the jungle all around you keeping it cool. Krabi’s coastline is an amazing sight, to actually get to paddle a kayak around it is a very memorable experience. Kids love to kayak, its so close in to the nature its a really immersive experience.
Surrounded by towering karst formations and cute little offshore islands, this place is simply ideal for kayaking. You get to explore small hidden passageways and discover the bay’s diverse eco system at your own pace and away from hordes of tourists. Rich in flora and fauna, Ao Thalane Bay is a great place to spot some of Thailand’s evasive wildlife: rare birds, monkeys and more.
For those seeking a quieter vacation, Ao Thalane offers a perfect secluded retreat. Nothing to really do except kayaking or cycling. No shopping complexes and only a couple of restaurants will be found near the hotels. There is very little to do at night, which for those seeking peace and quiet is perfect.
