The resort has three beaches within its boundaries. One is – Paparat Txara, in the western part of the resort; the other is Paui Phlong, surrounded by dense vegetation and occupying a separate cove on the east side of the city. The most popular is Ao Nanga Beach, located in a cluster of forested cliffs.

From May to October, the resort experiences rainy weather. This is the season when the main season of rainfall is practically over. But that doesnt mean its raining every day. The intensity of the intensity depends on the effect of the monsoons.

The average annual temperature fluctuates between 20 and 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Winter is a cold spell from November through February. This is the season that is most beneficial to travelers. The hot season lasts from March through May. During this period, the temperature and humidity rise sharply.
