Nopparat Thara Beach, Krabi Overview

Located around 6 km west of Krabi town, the Noppharat Thara Beach is one of Krabi's most famous beaches. The 3 km long stretch of soft, white sand lined up with coconut and casuarina trees comprises two beaches. The water level nearĀ Nopparat Thara Beach is so shallow thatĀ one can actually walk up to the islands during low tides.

So, for those picnicking plans in the shade of coconut trees, Noppharathara Beach is an ideal tourist destination to visit. Formerly known as Klong Haeng Beach, it is divided into two parts by the Klong Haeng River and is originally a part of the Marine National Park. A marvelous view of the offshore island of Ko Khao Sam Nuai and the Noppharat Thara–Koh Phi Phi National Park is visually appealing.
