Ao Noi beach is quite long with fishing boats at the end. After the village, you arrive at Wat Ao Noi, a beautiful teak temple at the foot of a mountain surrounded by two large 9 heads nagas. Behind it on the mountain , you will see a staircase made with shells with a standing Buddha in the middle leading to two buildings. And on the right, there are the stairs leading to the cave hosting a reclining Buddha. Don't forget to to turn the light of the cave on before starting the climb. The switch is on the wall of the building at right before the grand staircase (a small donation into the box below will be welcome).

Note that Ao Noi beach is not particularly suitable for swimming .
