It has clear water and clean beach. We reached island at 8:30 in the morning and there was no one except forest rangers. You need to pay 400 baht national park fee to put a foot on island. You can see this island from Ao nang beach, just 15 minutes travel by long tail boat. Better to hire charter boat... More

Everywhere on the island are rubbish and plastics. It makes sad to see, what people are doing to this place which has been a paradise for sure. Rangers are not interested in that either in money. You should not visit this place.

Nice place to visit and relax, but surely hyped. Nothing much to offer in terms of any activity other than enjoying in clear water and white sand beach, and probably some sun bath as well. More beach space is now getting crowded due to the lot boats parked there. This beach has some splendid view across the sea towards many... More

Went there by long-tail. 500 THB per person for return, inclusive of national park entry fee. The return journey is only at 3-4pm, so you'll be stuck for a long time on this island unless you're on private charter. Be warned. Completely overrun by people once you get dropped off at the main beach. We tried to make our way... More

beautiful, if not a bit spoiled by all of the litter. If 1000 farangs must shell out 10 bucks per person, each day, why can't the national park rangers get of their you-know-whats and do some damn cleaning. What a perfect place, although the sea lice are quite bad in february.

When you are in Ao Nang or Krabi you have to make a 4-Island trip. Two of the Islands you have to visit is Tub Kaek Island and Poda Island.

Nice pristine waters are to be found here. Grab your snorkel and check out the sea life. Pack a picnic, as there is nothing much on the island. Worth seeing and a much better standard of beach than the main Ao Nang beach.
