Koh Pak Bia - Krabi

Island Getaway Off Ao Nang

Koh Pak Bia (also spelled Phak Bia) is a small island that belong to the Koh Hong archipelago. Located right between Koh Yao Noi and Krabi coast, it is a popular destination for island-hoppers and day trippers in search of a quiet place to spend a relaxing time. Koh Pak Bia’s situation toward the southern side of Phang Nga Bay makes its surrounding waters more emerald than turquoise, yet snorkelling at short distance from its main beach allows visitors to see a great range of fish species.

The shape of Pak Bia Island is rather peculiar. It features a large circular dome covered with lush foliage, linked to a small rocky crop by a stripe of thick sand. The sand itself, again as a result of the island’s unique location, is not white and powdery as Koh Poda (located some 16km southeast), but is more like small yellowish gravel. Surrounded by other small islands, the scenery is fantastic and gives a real feeling of exclusivity and well-being in the the warm and natural environment of these tropical islands. A few local vendors have fresh drinks and snacks for sale on Koh Pak Bia.
