“Great day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Wonderful snorkeling, remote beach, and swimming. Worth a day trip to wade across the sand bar to chicken island or find a spot to read. What Thailand beaches are all about.

“Beautiful, never seen before”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Imagine at low tide, you get to walk between 3 islands (of of them tup island)... make sure its just a little low tide where the sand is slightly covered with water. Makes good pictures. Do wear something for the foot as there are lots of corals there if you plan to walk between the 3 islands.

“WOW! like a dream paradise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I came here after buying a cheap tour through "Barracudas tour", is a very good deal for $400B and they take you to several islands for the whole day. One of them was this one: Poda & Tup Island, they are very close to each other. During the midday it gets packed with tourist, but the good news is that they all come at once and they all leave in less that 2 hours, so you still have plenty of spots to swim in privacy.
The best thing about Tup island is that there's no accommodation, bar or anything, is just the natural beauty of this beach. If you go on low tide you can walk from one beach to the other. the water is soooo warm, good snorkeling too. Bring your lunch box and spend the day in this island is truly amazing and remember to bring ALL your rubbish with you. Is good to keep this place just the way it is clean and untouched!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This little island is amazing! We got there as the tide was starting to come in. We landed the boat on a small sand bar, and by the time we left, it was slowly disappearing. The water was sooo clear, and the beach was small, but beautiful. We had snorkels, but didn't need to use them. The fish were everywhere!

“Perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Untouchable and natural island in one of the 4 island tour. We can go to chicken island on the opposite with only walking across the sea. Amazing!
