Eighteen km to the northwest of Krabi, this beach boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. The name Hat Noppharat Thara is Pali-Sanskrit for Beach of the Nine Gemmed Stream, and was given to the area by Field Marshall Sarit who was impressed by its sheer beauty. In days gone by, this area was a heaven for pirates, who used the abundance of islands and caves for cover. However, today it is widely reputed as one of the most scenic coastal areas anywhere. Essentially a continuation of the marine karst topography of the incomparable Phangnga Bay, Hat Noppharat Thara is a two km stretch of beautiful, white-sand beach, with calm, clear seas spotted by rocky, limestone islands. Many of these coastal islands are within half a km of the beach, and are accessible by foot during low tide.
I hope you like it! ;)
