Nopparat Thara Beach

Located about 18 km north of the ever-popular Krabi Town and next to the much busier Ao Nang, Nopparat Thara Beach is within the 387 km² Hat Nopparat Thara – Koh Phi Phi National Park.

This relatively serene, unspoilt beach has almost 4 km of soft white sand lined by local casuarina trees. You can easily find a shady place for laying your beach mat and enjoying the peace.

The beach is about 20 metres wide at low tide and is a mixture of shells, corals, sand and some rocks. It has idyllic views out across the calm bay to offshore tree-covered islands.

Nopparat Beach is a top spot for swimming, picnics and sunbathing and is frequented by locals as well as tourists. At low tide you can wade across in shallow water to tiny island of Koh Kao Pak Klong at one end of the beach.

The nearby highway is lined with hotels, beach bars and restaurants, particularly at the eastern end of the bay. Attractions include speedboat trips to nearby islands, a ferry to Ao Nang, snorkelling and diving trips, sea eagle tours and the Nopparat Thara Pier. You can also rent a longtail boat and enjoy a local sightseeing ride around the surrounding islands including Koh Poda.

The best time to visit is at sunrise for enjoying stunning skies.
