Tup Island, Ao Nang

4.2
#3 of 19 in Nature in Krabi Town
Relax on a pristine beach or snorkel in crystal clear waters filled with tropical fish at Tup Island, one of the most popular islands around Krabi. You can rent a boat and paddle about at your own leisure. At low tide, walk across a sandbar to the neighboring island. Bring a waterproof bag to keep any belongings in, in case you have to return at high tide when the water rises to waist height above the sandbar. Be aware that the small island becomes very crowded at peak times. Plan to visit Tup Island during your Krabi Town vacation using our convenient Krabi Town online visit planner .

  • the strip of sand that unites the two islets is beautiful. Accessible by island tours from Ao Nang or by private boat. Too many tourists. To see anyway.

  • Splendid views, one of the best islands with picturesque scenery though it was small. Clear water and white soft sands. Really enjoyed swimming here.  more »

  • Beautiful! Been there as part of 3 islands tour. This is the very smallest one, close to Chicken. It was high tide so these two islands weren’t “connected” at the moment. Very tiny sand part with rocks on both ends of island. It was a nice swim and I liked it very much, this is place to spend about 15-30 minutes I guess. Many boats arrive, but it was not crowded as I expected.
  • Great island to hang out on for a few hours. There's a sandbar that connects two sides of the island. One side has a bathroom and place to get food (not too many options) other side has icy drinks and food as well. 300 baht boat ride plus 400 baht park fee but worth it.The park fee is paid to the driver and he keeps your return ticket - just a heads up as these were the parts we were like hope this works out. Watch out for the monkeys who will go through your things if you're not paying attention! We only saw 2 but they were on the prowl.
  • Amazing beach, a small island between the water. Awesome view. One will find fishes around when in water
  • Beautiful island and walkable to and from during low tides. Its a bit tough to walk through, would highly recommend wet socks if you're planning to go (a friend got these for $5 from Kmart). Otherwise you can get them very much from any where in Ao Nang and surroundings. The water was running nice and warm, you'd definitely want to get yourself wet.
  • This place is an unbelievable gem in the ocean. A very tiny strip of white sand with two small hillocks at both ends. The water is unrealistically coloured yet crystal clear. It's a place that I would love to spend my life at.
