Western Nopphara Thara

The best part of Nopphara Thara Beach is found on the far side of the river -- a long stretch of largely undeveloped sand that curves to the west. Suitable for those who want peace and quiet and could care less about access to nightlife and traveller facilities, it's one of Krabi's best little hideaways. You can easily get here by longtail boat for 40 baht in high season, though in low season you may need to wander around the pier looking for a boatman. If coming by motorbike, head northwest out of Nopphara Thara village and take a couple of lefts, staying on Nongtalay-Klongmuang Rd and following signs for Khlong Muang beach, until you see signs for the small resorts in western Nopphara Thara.

Eastern Nopphara Thara

While the beach here could be worse, it's nowhere near as pristine as western Nopphara Thara and the rather busy road that runs its length detracts from the atmosphere. Still, some cheap and interesting places to stay can be found a short walk inland, and the area is especially suited to long-stayers who appreciate more of a local style.
