Small island just a 15 minute ride on a longtail boat from Ao Nang beach. Buy a ticket from the official kiosk on the beach road, and they will direct you to your boat. Private use of the boats slightly more expensive than a joint ride, but well worth it. A must-see when in Krabi/Ao Nang.

Tup Island is one of the most viewed sites in Thailand. On this island, when the low tide, the sea is gradually separated by the white sand, connecting the two islands which allows to get from one island to the other. A beautiful place to be.

Tup island is a unique island. During high tide (usually afternoon) it seems as it were two islands. But during low tide you will see that it's actually only 1 island. Really beautiful small island. The sunset from out there is amazing. With everything around you just ocean and small islands. A breathtaking experience. Must see when you're in southern... More

Visited as part of a 3 island boat trip from Ao Nang. This is a beautiful island with stunning "castaway" beaches. We stopped here for lunch provided by the boat operator so can't say whether or not it is possible to buy food.

Can get really packed sometimes especially during peak season. But the beach is so clean until you'll see the vivid colour of the blue water

Beautiful beach but really busy. Loads of boats in and out so be aware if you are swimming or snorkelling.

A beautiful beach for sunbathing. Growded, but cosy. Not for snorkeling. The water is not so clear due to the sand. Spend a day here and enjoy your holiday!

Sea over which you can walk around for miles. A beach having sea waves on both sides. Beautiful one.

Went on the 4-island trip to Phranang, Chicken, Tup and Poda Islands and this is my favourite! The sand bank linking the 2 islands is amazing- my 2 year old explored it like a wonderland.

A small cute island, we got there early around 8:20ish with our private water taxi which was approx 2500 baht from centara resort. The journey took around 20 minutes. We set out early to enjoy the beach before the crowd of other tourists got in, also it was low tide so we had a good portion of the beach exposed.... More
