The beach of AO Nammao beach (Ao Nam Mao, Ao Nammao) is the Bay area, Ao Nammao Bay 10 kilometres to the East of AO Nang (beach on the map of the province). AO Nammao is located between Krabi town and AO Nang, but from the point of view of transport is a stub location because is very quiet and tourism is poorly developed. Here are the landmarks: Graveyard of seashells and Aquarium in Krabi.
The whole area stretches for almost 4 kilometers along the shore of the Bay and formed along the main and only road. The decor is rustic (in fact this is the village), and there is almost nothing of the entertainment and tourism infrastructure. However, along the beach there are hotels with their territory, there are bungalows with direct access to the water, you can rent a house. The hotel grounds are surrounded by greenery and bungalows you will live like in the jungle by the sea.

No shops, no transport here is almost there. You can eat in one of the few cafes in the food court or for the local market. A few food stalls and Souvenirs is near the shell cemetery, there is a local market near the pier.
The beaches here are worse than average quality. At low tide the water appear debris, logs, or concrete pillars, causing the bottom threat. At high tide in some places, the water suited so close to the mangroves and trees, that strip of sand almost disappears. In some places the beach is just rocky. In General, if you have any complaints about the quality of the beaches you here are unlikely. But there is a fairly simple solution, even two: take a share taxi for 20 baht to AO Nang, or by boat from the pier of Ao Nammao Pier to Railay, where the beaches are quite a sight. But this is one of the few places on the coast where at night you can see the miracle of nature – glowing plankton.
In General, if not to take into account the beach, amenities and attractions, the atmosphere is very quiet and peaceful, and because for some it will be enjoyable. But if you have pain in one place, here you'll just die of boredom, and have all the time travels in neighbouring areas. In the evenings to do absolutely nothing, have to spend time in the room or again in the neighbouring areas, for example, near AO Nang. The only advantage this area are the low prices for accommodation.
How to get to AO Nammao pier
As mentioned, the area is a stub. Go here only share taxis from the bus station in Talad Kao Krabi town Noppharat Tara beach, AO Nang beach - the shell Graveyard. The price from AO Nang for 20 baht (see currency of Thailand, the exchange rate) and bus station - is 80 baht. They go on filling it about every 20-30 minutes. From Krabi town, the bus station in Talad Kao and Krabi airport can only be reached with a transfer in AO Nang.
In the area of the pier of Ao Nammao Pier (pier on the map). There are in the occupancy of the boat to the beach East Railay (Railey East) for 60 baht, but the administration has to wait for a long time. You can also hire a boat to 4 Islands (Poda, chicken, Taba, Raleigh) for 2000 baht per boat up to 8 people; Hong island for 3,600 baht per boat (up to 6 people); on bamboo island (Bamboo Island) for 3800 baht for a boat (up to 5 people).
The best way is to have your own transport to get to neighbouring areas. Unfortunately, working rentals of motorbikes, we did not find, and to hire you need to negotiate with the locals or take a motorbike to rent in the surrounding areas.
