Pan Beach in Krabi is long and completely wild.

Deserted and deserted beach, a great place to relax and contemplate. All the charm of wild wilderness and just 10 km from Ao Nanga. True, there is no tourist infrastructure either, with the exception of a few hotels with bamboo huts.

Beach description

This beach borders on the east Nopparat Tara beachbut separated from it by the river. Three beaches - Ao Nang, Nopparat Tara and Ban Beach divide the large arc of the bay into about three parts. Ban Beach is the most deserted and secluded of all three beaches listed above. There is practically nothing on it.

Well, well, a couple of houses and a few simple ones.bungalow hotels. But that's all. Only fishing boats, a great view of the islands in the distance and the cliffs of the coast, light sand and casuarin trees, sometimes alternated with palm trees and other vegetation.

It is very deserted and quiet. In the morning and in the evening nobody. On the west side, the beach ends at the confluence of the river into the sea (or bay), on the east from Nopparat Thara, it is also separated by a river, next to which small rocks, covered with bushes, stick out of the water.

Sunset, depth and waves

Sunset on the beach is very long and shallow. Far, far away, the sea keeps knee-deep. That, in principle, can be convenient for swimming, if you do not like to jump in the waves. Here, as well as on the neighboring beaches, ebbs are strongly pronounced, during which the sea moves so far from the coast that the deep water from the coast becomes practically unattainable.

At such a time, you can see the bare bottom - even, without large stones and everything cracked. The sand on the beach is light gray, there is a little silt on the bottom near the shore.

Sun beds and shade

There are no deck chairs with umbrellas for rent on the beach, in generalnothing but sand. But along the whole beach there are trees, including sprawling high casuarines, which give shade well. In this natural shade you can hide from the sun during the day. In the mornings, the entire strip of the beach is in the shade of the trees. Sun loungers can only be found near the resorts.

There is nothing at all on the beach. Only sea, sand and trees. Yes, a few simple bungalow hotels. But no more infrastructure. So if you go there, you need to take water with you and have something to eat.

How to find the beach

You can drive to the beach either by taxi oryour transport. From Ao Nang, take the same road that leads to the beach and Klong Muang village. For example, like this: first you need along the Ao Nang seafront to Nopparat Tara beach, then along Nopparat Tara, then the road goes inland from the sea, to the right.

Next, follow the signs to go to Klong muang. After the bridge across the river, you should turn left onto the 6024 road. From the 6024 road there will also be a left turn to a small forest road. It will be about 10 km from Ao Nang.

Turn inconspicuous, there is only a house by the roadon the left stands and the road to the forest leaves. Further this narrow road winds through the forest and leads to a fork. It is better to go to the right - the road goes further along the beach, and there will be bungalow hotels on the left. Where the Pan Bungalows is located, there is a ramp directly to the beach. It will be about his middle.

The road along the beach runs along a private area with a fence.

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
