Relaxed and unhurried, Ao Nang, is surrounded by spectacular scenery. Towering Majestic cliffs, swaying palms, an expanse of pure white sand and offshore, a vista weirdly shaped islands providing a wonderful seascape. Perfect is how this place has been described. Despite fairly rapid development over the last few years, there are no large shopping centres, no large leisure facilities, no high rise resort hotels, because Ao Nang is a place for sea, sun and sand. But you will find find most of the accommodation, shops and restaurants all within easy walking distance of each other and a beach which just beckons to sit and relax.
