If you are the sporty type who simply cannot withstand the mundane activities of lazing on the beach or taking a boring boat trip, you’ll be glad to know that there are outdoor activities available in Krabi as well!
Rock Climbing is a popular activity in Krabi. At Phra Nang Beach, the adventurous can scale the limestone cliffs with the use of safety equipment like bolts and harnesses. There are courses for beginners so you can join in the fun even if you have no prior climbing experience.
For a different type of adrenaline-rush, you can consider Cliff Climbing. This is an exhilarating activity where you swim from your boat to the base of a cliff, climb up a rope ladder, and proceed to scale the cliff. There is no harness whatsoever, and if you miss a step you simply fall into the sea. I had my cliff climbing adventure with the Krabi Sunset Cruises tour. The boat crew provided me with the necessary equipment such as life-jackets and flippers. They also tied a sturdier ladder to the cliff to make the climb easier. The professionalism of the crew made me feel safe even though cliff-climbing seems like a risky activity.
