Located southwest of Ao Nang, Tup Island is a famous attraction filled with breathtaking beaches and scenic coastlines. The entire area of the island is incredibly picturesque as you can see the entire Krabi coastline as its backdrop.
High tide calls you to swim and explore the waters of Tup island as they surely don’t disappoint. Snorkelling is a must – below Tup Island’s glistening waters are colourful tropical fishes that are often clustered near the rocks at the end of the beach. During low tide, you can walk on the sandbar going to Chicken Island as well as Mor Island. It is recommended to use some footwear when walking in the sandbar as there are instances that there are sharp shells or corals along the way.
