“Paradise on Earth”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Tup Island is connected to Chicken Island by a small sandy causeway which can be walked across at low tide. Low tide when we visited was at 06:30AM / 18:00 so unfortunately we missed it on this visit, although on a previous visit I did walk across.

To really appreciate this place and its worth noting this down, go as early in the morning as you can. It is very popular and very beautiful, even more so where your there with just a few people or so. When several hundred people are there, less so.

The water is bath water warm and clean. Snorkelling is a must, you cannot appreciate how many different types of fish are invisible from the boats. There are green and blue ones but also a lot of mini goldfish, which if you have an underwater camera, would be a great background for your home PC or Mac.

Well worth a visit, best advice, take a longtail boat as you can do the 4 island tour, Chicken Island, Pado Island, Tup Island and Railey Beach.

Downside: You are expected to pay an additional 200 THB per person because you are in National Park. This is not included in your boat arrangement, once paid, tell them to give the ticket to the boat captain otherwise, they will try to charge you 200 THB per island or until you wise up to it.

“Beautiful island”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Its small and connected to another tiny island by a sand strip which is exposed during low tide and you can cross over on foot. A really unique experience for us.

“Would be beautiful during dry season”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Our visit was during the wet season with choppy seas, high tides and temperamental weather so the sea was not nice. But am sure it could be quite beautiful during calm weather. However, even during this low season period, the beach was overcrowded and full of litter so I can only imagine the madness of high season.

Longtail boat is a more private ride but much slower. However, once you reach the islands, it doesn't matter whether you are on a private longtail or fast boat...there is just people and boats everywhere! I'd go with the fast boat, it's safer and faster.

Simply wow factor. Although it was a bit crowded, you would forget about it once you set foot into the waters and sandy beach. Bring lots of sun lotion.
