Tup Island Tours

Tup Island is one of the most popular offshore islands around Krabi, and is a staple part of the itinerary for most day trips from the mainland. Situated southwest of Ao Nang and between Poda Island and Chicken Island, Tup is smaller than the other islands in the archipelago it belongs to, but its white sands and excellent snorkeling certainly don’t disappoint. 

Tup Island is most commonly visited as part of a ‘Four Islands’ longboat tour from Ao Nang. The three other islands include Poda Island, Chicken Island, and Mor Island, with a stop at Phra Nang Cave Beach usually included. This entire area is incredibly scenic, with panoramic views of the Krabi coastline as its backdrop.

The clear waters and abundance of tropical fish surrounding Tup Island make it a haven for swimming and snorkeling, although many visitors prefer to simply relax on the beach or enjoy a stroll. At low tide, a sandbar emerges linking Tup Island with Chicken Island as well as the smaller Mor Island. This unique occurrence is commonly referred to as Talay Waek, meaning ‘divided sea’.

Practical Info

Tup Island is included in Krabi’s Four Island tours, which depart from Ao Nang, as well as a number of other beaches along the Krabi coastline. Alternatively it’s possible to charter a private longtail boat with a driver.

Some sort of footwear is recommended when walking across the sandbar between the islands, as sharp coral and shells usually emerge from the water and lay strewn across the sand.
