One of the cleanest beaches in Thailand. Very beautiful. The dusky leaf monkeys are the best (and love corn--buy from market for an unforgettable experience)!

This is our kind of beach - quiet, natural, not many foreigners, good eateries, great sand, gently sloping beach, safe swimming and safe for kids. Absolutely idyllic!

Traveling around Thailand and looking for most peaceful beach in Thailand 's gulf ? Must visit to Prachuapkhirikhan and heading to Aou Ma-now (it is mean Lemon Bay in Thai) This area is under property of THai airforec base and use to be landing site for japanese soildiegalow anr betwwen WW II.But now it is white sand beach with very cheap bungalow and hotel run by Airforce base unit 53.Most unordinary from elsewhere is very cheap seafood along the beach and clean cooking by family of the soldier in the airbase.Every time for me and my family visit ,this place never make me disappointed,but most favorite to my kids and my wife.

Ao Manao beach is about 4 kilometres from the town it's clean with a food court at the back and deck chairs, brolly and table for about 50 bht., it is walkable but a bycycle or motor bike is handy as this enables you to tour around the airforce base (wing 5) to see things especially the Spectacled Lungar monkeys which are really sweet to see.

Ao Manao beach is only a short 15 minute ride out of Prachuap Khiri Khan on motorbike, and is worth the trip. On the way you have to pass the checkpoint into the military base, and if you are a foreigner, you must go inside to sign the guestbook, both coming and going. Also, if you are riding a motorbike, you are required to wear a helmet to go through the base, and will be turned back if you do not have one. The beach is extremely popular with Thai's, so there are many facilities catering to tourist, including restaurants, public washroom, boat and jet-ski rentals, etc.

Ao Manao is located in the furthest south of the three beautiful bays the line the coast near Prachuap Khiri Khan, and is a spectacular setting for a day at the beach.
