offering activities

is a quieter alternative to Ao Nang and excellent for a morning stroll or watching the sunset, but the beach gets rather narrow on high tide, and it is a good idea to ask the locals if it is jellyfish season before plunging in if no one else is in the water. Nearby the river, during low tide you can walk up to some of the nearby craggy limestone islands like Kao Pak Klong. Do Rai Leh and Ko Phi Phi are just around the corner and there are many tour operators offering activities such as sea kayaking and elephant treks. '''Rock Climbing''' can be arranged through Ao Nang agencies who will arrange transfers, lunch, and as much climbing as your limbs can handle. Alternatively, simply wander over to Rai Leh or Ton Sai and organize an introductory course yourself. *
