Noppharat Thara is among Krabi’s most famous beaches. Located only 6 km away from Ao Nang Bay, Noppharat Thara Beach features a 3-km white sandy beach full of rows of casuarinas and coconut trees. The beach was formerly known as ‘Khlong Haeng Beach,’ which means a dried-canal beach in Thai. The term was taken during low tide when the water dries up and reveals long, seashells-paved seashore. Nopphrat Thara Beach is actually part of the marine national park. So it means visitors who wish to stay overnight are required to contact the office of the national park for reservations and accommodation options in advance.
