A trip to Krabi won’t be complete without visiting its breathtaking islands and beautiful white beaches. However, don’t worry if you are afraid of having insufficient time to explore other attractions! You only need a day to visit 4 iconic islands in Krabi.
Let’s find out more about the boat trip and the highlights of these islands: Phra Nang Cave Beach, Koh Poda, Koh Tup, and Koh Kai (Chicken Island).
Phra Nang Cave Beach
Located on the Southern tip of the Railay Peninsula, Phra Nang Cave Beach is well-known for its stunning limestone cliffs surrounded by white sand and clear blue seawater.
Apart from offering a great photo backdrop, this beach has many fun activities which you can do, including rock climbing, sunbathing, swimming, and beach volleyball.
At the end of this 450-meter beach, there is Phra Nang Cave or the Princess Cave, where you can find wonderful stalactites and stalagmites. People also believe that the cave houses the princess spirit.

Inside the cave, there is a large collection of offerings and garlands as fishermen often come here to pray for success in fishing and protection from danger.
Koh Poda is the largest island among all the islands you will visit on this boat trip.
Regarded as a paradise for nature lovers by many visitors, Poda Island is home to fine white beaches and clear water, making it an ideal spot for swimming.
A signature landmark here is an eye-catching sail-like limestone cliff standing alone. So, don’t forget to snap some shots with it!
Koh Poda can get crowded from time to time as it is one of the top attractions in Krabi. If you prefer a quieter place to hang out and unwind, we suggest you walk further up the beach.
When talking about Krabi, you may commonly hear about “Talay Waek” or the sandbar that links two islets: Koh Tup and Koh Kai at low tide.
As it is home to one of Thailand’s unseen highlights, Koh Tup has gained popularity from both locals and foreigners. If you are lucky, you will be able to walk across this sandy causeway.

This exotic tropical island is also suitable for easy snorkeling, given its turquoise seawater. You can opt to walk around and explore the island as well.
Koh Kai (Chicken Island)
Koh Kai (Chicken Island), a neighboring island of Koh Tup, is only a 5-minute boat ride away from Koh Tup. It was named after its distinctive rock formation that resembles a chicken.
This postcard-perfect island is an excellent snorkeling and scuba diving spot as it has crystal clear seawater and impressive coral reefs. You will likely notice a school of the Dwarf Tiger Barb swimming too.
