Poda island is a "must see". It takes about 25 min to get there by long tail boat. The sand is white and the water is very clear. It is good to go snorkling there. There are many tourists visiting the island so be prepared for that. We paid 300 baht to go there by long tail and additional 400... More

Beautiful island spot very near to Ao Nang and Railey. Super clear waters. In high season loads of day trippers on the main beach. Recommend to walk the beach further south. Easy to combine the visit to Poda with Chicken and Tub islands (and "the divided sea" when the tide is low).

We took a longtail to Poda ($300 baht per person return) plus a $400 entry fee per person due to it being national Park. We arrived around 10 30 in morning to crystal clear waters and white sand beach. It looked tranquil and uncommercialised (so we thought). After a couple of hours we walked back around to where we thought... More

Breathtaking, less busy, tree swings, bbq on beach, so fun and relaxing all in one. Only problem is atrocious bathrooms, but I mean its a beach in Thailand so what can you expect other than a hole in the ground haha

We visited this beautiful island around noon and were having lunch on one end of the beach with our group. It was not very crowded and I assumed that it is just a tiny island. After the lunch we were told that we have about 45 mins here at the island. So me and husband started walking towards the other... More

Nothing much to do here just chill. If not because following the island hoping I think I myself won't come to this island. I would rather chill at Ao nang beach and use the 400 Baht for some good food. So, you may consider isit worth to just pay another 400 Baht (besides we pay for the trip fees) just... More
