The Nopparat Thara beach in Krabi

Usually refers to AO Nang as one of its beaches is part of the National Park, Hat Noppharat Thara / Ko Phi Phi Mu. The length of the beach to two kilometers.
It is believed that the Nopparat Thara beach is more wild and natural beach than AO Nang. As in AO Nang, just a few metres from the water's edge come on the road, but it is much less busy, and on the other side of it is the endless array of shops and agencies in AO Nang. No along most of the beach is extended and equipped with recreational areas, making it only wins. All the entertainment such as jet skis and banana is forbidden here (because it is the territory NAT. Park), you can't even find sun loungers and umbrellas for rent. In the Western part, close to the beach, there are several beautiful coral island which can be reached on foot during low tide.
However, it would be wrong to say that it is the ideal beach. Unfortunately, it is far from ideal. The sandy strip here is narrow at high tide in some places is only a few meters of sand. And in the Eastern part, the one closer to AO Nang, along the water's edge stretches the protective stone border, forming embankment and not adding beauty to the beach. If you move further West, the border disappears and the beach becomes more natural, however, it appears the natural debris washed ashore by the waves. For bathing the beach is not very suitable: water is muddy at low tide goes far, very shallow clay bottom and unpleasant. Still one problem: here on the weekend a lot of locals to picnic on the beach, and after they left a lot of garbage.
