We recently spent a weekend in Prachuap Khiri Khan and headed absolutely fell in love with Ao Manao Beach! It is located inside the Wing 5 Air Force Base right in Prachuap city. The beach is huge and military personnel keep it spotless! The bay is protected by many small islands so the water is calm and safe even for... More

It took around two and half hours from Bangkok to Ao Manao by car. But it worth ! The beach is beautiful and clean. You can swim on the beach. There are 2 or 3 public bathroom to use after swim at the beach, and you just pay around 5 - 10 baht only. The best time to visit this... More

Having rented a house in Hua Hin for a month, we did a fair bit of touring around the surrounding area. We stopped here on our way back to Hua Hin from Pratchuap Khiri Khan. The guard at the gate did give us kind of a weird look when we said we were going to the beach (maybe not a... More

The best beach in the area. We were here on a weekday so was absolutely dead which was great for us. Is mainly used by the locals and Bangkok crowd during the weekends I believe, loads of deckchairs available but none at all being used while we were there. Food area is pretty cheap and yummy too with an english... More

We have spent some time at this lovely quiet beach just a few kms away from Prachuap Kiri Kan town. The beach is a nice place to relax, especially during the week when very few people were around. The water is shallow, ideal for people with young children and for those of us scared of water !

Passing through looking for 1 night, stayed 1 week. Convenient and hospitable, food is genuine Thai- Issan if you want The guesthouse has a delightful garden with beautiful plants and koi. ROB and Pancake were more than willing to arrange connections, bikes and sightseeing. A bargain at the prices. I highly recommend.

This beach was the perfect spot for us. My daughter could play safely in the very calm and shallow sea in this crescent formed bay. The wide beach and the water was very clean. Foreigners have to sign in and out at the military camp entry.
