Beautiful beach!! Go on a sunny clear day

If you catch the right day (sunny and no clouds) it's an amazing beach that you can snorkel from. No much to do but enjoy the beautiful views, relax and take some amazing phots

The island is stunning. We did this as part of our 4 island tour. Spent 1 hr here but easily can spend longer. We wanted to come back and we ended up meeting another 2 couples at the longtail taxi stop at Ao Nang who wanted to go to just Poda so we jumped in as well so the price... More

Great island, great sand, during the season way too many people, but still worth going and seeing it, great time to spend whole day.

Having been on this island a couple of times and I think that is nice island to go to. The only downside is that you are paying more in fees because it is a national park than what you pay to go there by longtail boat from Ao Nang.

A visit to Poda Island is probably enjoyable on a calm, fine day, but it can be a difficult experience otherwise. My family and I booked a twilight cruise, which incorporated a visit to several islands in the Aonang/Railay area. The boat was not the one featured in the advertisements, and the weather descended into a storm as the afternoon... More

You just have to go there vizit and come back. Nothing special. The whater is great and blue the beach is ok not so clean they could clean it because they charge you 400 THD just to visit the island.

Incredibly beautiful beach. take about two hours on speed boat to get there from Patong habour, so much of your day is spent on traveling. really enjoyable time on beach. many food options from people selling on boat. will go again.
