Poda Island is a beautiful place located 25-minutes away from Raileh Peninsular. It is a small circular limestone island which is covered by soft and white sand beach.
Poda Island’s long beach in the east is a perfect place to chill out and relax under the shade of the palm trees or swim in the clear waters and sunbathe. Snorkelling and scuba diving are a must here – you’ll see the great and abundant marine life under water. Colourful corals dominate the seabed just 20 metres away from the coast. You can also see and check the neighbouring islands with a hired long tail boat or with a kayak. You can also witness the Talay Week or divided sea during the low tide, where a Y-shaped sandbar will appear connecting the 3 neighbouring islands.
Poda Island is located in the west coast of Thailand, Krabi Province, 8 kilometres away from Ao Nang.
