One of the most underrated experiences in Krabi is the 4 Island Tour. Walking down the main street in the beach town of Ao Nang, you will see hundreds of street vendors promoting their many tours. The 4 Island Tour is one that many people overlook, choosing to go to one of the more popular beaches like Maya Bay or Railay Beach. However, this tour will exceed all of your expectations.
These tours start at 9am and generally cost 1,200 Baht during high season. You can usually bargain with the vendor and get the cost down to 1,000 Baht. However, if you want to take a risk and book the tour right before 9am when the boat leaves, you can find yourself paying just 500 Baht per person. The tour cost includes hotel pick-up, snorkeling gear, island entrance fees, and lunch, so you definitely get your money’s worth. The first stop on the tour is Phra Nang Cave Beach. This beautiful beach is only accessible by boat, and features a limestone cliff to your left, and a small picturesque island to your right.
Next up on the tour is the small Tup Island with crystal clear waters, sea swings, and tropical fish. At low tide, a small sandbar emerges that connects the tiny island to the much larger neighboring island and the next stop on the tour. Chicken Island is named after the unmistakable rock emerging from the island that resembles a chicken head. At this island, you will have the opportunity to snorkel in warm, clear waters among schools of brightly colored fish.
Tip: If you bring bread for the fish you are guaranteed to have hundreds of blue and yellow-striped fish surrounding you, leaving you with some incredible photos. The final, and perhaps the best stop on the tour is Poda Island. This island is a little slice of paradise, featuring white sand beaches, turquoise water, and an amazing limestone island jutting out of the water. For those of you searching for more secluded beaches, Poda will be the perfect place for you. The 4 Island Tour brings you back to Ao Nang Beach at 3pm, leaving you with stunning photos and the experience of a lifetime.
