#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 .

  • 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.
