Ao Tubtim

Guesthouses, hotels and resorts

Tiny Ao Tubtim has one large and reputable beach resort with a wide array of options for low- to mid-range budgets, and also an ageing backpacker spot on the northern end of the beach. Traverse the headland to the south and you'll reach isolated Ao Nuan with its lone place to stay.
