Koh Poda is one the most popular islands in Krabi archipelago.
Located just six kilometres offshore from Ao Nang, it roughly takes 25 minutes to get there by long-tail boat. The price for a return ticket is about 300 baht per person; note that if you travel alone, you will have to wait for the long-tail boat to be full according to its capacity before you set off.
Mu KohPoda or Poda Island group consists of four islands: KohPoda, Koh Kai, Koh Tap and Koh Mor. KohPoda is the largest of the group despite its area being no more than a kilometre in diameter.
Covered with palm and pine trees and almost entirely encircled by a soft white sand beach, it is every inch the stunning tropical getaway.
A coral reef lies about 20 metres from the beach with a variety of sea life. The irresistible combination of excellent snorkelling, scenery and soft sand make the island a popular choice with snorkelers and sea kayakers, but surprisingly, it’s not that crowded.
