Blessed with soft white sands, clear turquoise water, and plenty of shade, Ao Wai is one of the quietest beaches on the south side of the island. Bask in the sun, then take a refreshing swim or snorkel among colorful corals looking for pearl oysters. Even though this picture-perfect beach is far removed from the action, the nearby seaside resort offers showers, restrooms, sunbeds, and its bar/restaurant to all visitors. Ao Wai is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
