Koh Poda Krabi Aonang


Koh Podah Nai is a little over 6 km to the south of Ao Nang beach.

It is one of the largest isles offshore and has average depths of 8 meters around its perimeter.

Poda Nai reef slopes gently downwards from five meters in the north beach until it flattens out at twelve meters.

The site's shallowness means that the coral heads often break sea level at low tide which make ideal snorkeling spots at high tide.

Divers will find better corals and marine creatures if you venture outwards from the island. Clusters of stag-horn coral, cauliflower coral formations, leaf and plate corals are a keen sight for novice divers.

Take a peak in the crevices of the rocky walls and you may see tiger-tail seahorses clinging inside. Koh Podah Nok is approximately 500 meters due south of the main Podah island. Nok means small in Thai and this tiny islet is extremely shallow around the site.

Typical depths are one to 4 meters so snorkeling is the main water-based activity here and photographers will find the picturesque eastern shore particularly stunning at the beach front.
