Krabi Island Overview

Krabi Island is getting its recognition for its scenic beauty, lush vegetation on shorelines, rough limestone formations, sprouting coral reefs, beautiful caves, and a stunning access point to the Andaman. It houses over 200 islands and several pristine and postcard beaches with stunningly modern but classic resorts and captivating surroundings, making it an ideal place for vacationing in Thailand.

Prominent for its stunning beaches with soft white sand, clear water, lush green vegetation, limestone formations, and water sports activities, the Krabi Island welcomes visitors from all over the world and allows them to experience the exotic island away from the bustling city life. 

Krabi Island is the most soothing fraction of Thailand with terrific activities like island hopping, scuba diving, snorkeling, bird watching, kayaking, swimming, and more. The beachfront resorts lend a five-star touch to the panorama. 

With over 200 islands laying off the Krabi coastline, the best way to explore all of them is to rent a boat from Krabi town and explore the postcard islands on your own. With Thrillophilia Thailand packages, tourists can also take some time off island hopping and visit the famous Thung Teao Forest Natural Park which is known for its natural beauty, Crystal Lagoon, also known as the Emerald Pool with warm crystal clear water. This natural park is the perfect spot for bird watching. 

Krabi Island is also home to a temple in a cave at Wat Tham Sua. There is a warren of caves located here with several monks living and worshipping here. The cave lets you explore tons of relics and icons, along with the "Footprint of the Buddha", which is a 1,237 steps climb to the top. The top of the cave lets you relish the 360 degree view of the whole Andaman Sea.
