What is Klong Muang Beach?
Klong Muang Beach is one of those splendid stretches of sand that grace the coastline of Krabi, a province that doesn't fall short of breathtaking landscapes. This beach is somewhat of a hush-hush locale, known mostly to those who seek tranquillity away from the more boisterous tourist spots like Ao Nang or the Phi Phi Islands. Its pristine shores are lapped by the serene emerald waters of the Andaman Sea, and the beach itself is flanked by luxurious resorts and the more modest establishments that cater to travellers seeking both comfort and adventure.
