Though this beach is not that popular among tourists compared to the Nopparat Thara Beach on mainland Krabi, Khlong Muang Beach or the island of Phi Phi, Ao Siao is getting ready to attract tourists once the Covid-19 outbreak comes to an end.
The 2-kilometre-long beach is still abundant with natural resources, especially scores of starfish which can be seen when the tide ebbs. The beach is also known for its refreshing breezes and strangely shaped sand dunes.
Ao Siao is 5km from Ao Nang Beach within the Hat Nopparat Thara-Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park.
