Ao Thalane – The most popular spot for kayaking in Krabi province, Ao Tha Len (also spelt Thalane) is a small bay that puts you within easy paddling distance of a network of canals meandering amid mangroves, sea caves and vertical limestone cliffs.
Ao Thalane – Thalane Bay in Thai – has become the capital of sea kayaking in Krabi Province. Located in the southern part of Ao Luk sub-district , Ao Thalane is a fishing village located in a superb area featuring mangrove forests and impressive limestone canyons, offering the perfect playground for sea kayaking exploration.This area of Krabi Province is rather undeveloped and still retains its genuinely Thai character. The mangrove forest and its inextricable network of canals is the breeding ground of many fish and crustacean species, so fishing has been the prime occupation of the locals for centuries before the first tourists arrived. Fortunately, tourism development in Ao Thalane is pretty slow and this area remains off the beaten tracks.
