Jungle Beach or Krating Beach, located to the west of Ao Sane Beach near Naiharn Beach, is this tiny beach with just a small spot of sand, and a lot of rocks. The Jungle Beach Resort (Baan Krating Jungle Resort) is up on the hill behind the beach on Laem Mum Nok Road. You can find rooms there for around just 1,500 Thai Baht – you’ll have access to the beach from there. Or, if you don’t plan on staying at a resort nearby, you can just take a longtail boat there from one of the other beaches in close proximity.
You can see in the video, one guy seems to be fishing from the rocks before we arrive at Krating Beach. This small beach is surrounded by huge rocks in the sand, on the hills around, and in the water. As you might have guessed from the video, Krating Beach is ideal for snorkeling – it’s an absolute snorkeling paradise. There are many rocks below the surface, and the rocky shore where the man is fishing, is an ideal spot to find lots of marine life.
The sandy area on the beach is nothing special, and you’ll probably feel a bit strange pulling up to Krating Beach in a longtail boat and plopping your mat down. The beach is only really visited by people staying at the Baan Krating Jungle Resort. Still, you can take a longboat here and snorkel while the boat waits or have them drop you off here while you snorkel to your heart’s content.
