Here you'll find a straight stretch of golden sand, lined by clear waters so shallow and calm that they're the perfect place for children to play and swim safely. Apart from an onsite beach bar which serves food and drink throughout the day and some exotic trees which provide natural shade, there are no facilities here, so you'll need to bring all your own commodities with you.
Tubkaek beach is one of the least popular in the whole of Krabi, making it the ideal place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet.

There are no food and drink kiosks on the beach, although there are some restaurants, hotels and bars lining the beach, just a few metres back from the shore. Toward the north of the beach, you'll also find the Tubkaek National Park which you can explore.
