Tub Kaek Beach
Tub Kaek Beach in the north of Krabi is a quiet, hideaway beach, one of a few here. It is a 20 minute drive through rubber plantations from the hub of Ao Nang Beach. This sliver of beautiful coral sand sits tight between the ocean and a steep mountainside clothed in some of the thickest natural rainforest left in the province. Beautiful old trees stretch out over the beach sands, providing such ideal, deep shade that the 5 hotels here need few beach umbrellas. And the offshore scenery here is dramatic also –the horizon is punctuated by unusual shaped, mountain-islands protruding from the sea.
Tub Kaek Beach is host to a small but impressive group of stunning luxury resorts scattered along the exclusive stretch of pure white sand. Visitors will marvel at the evening sun and enjoy the peaceful nature of a beach yet to be spoiled by over commercial exploitation.
The Anyavee Tubkaek Beach Resort has direct access to the sea and half or full-day boating excursions can be arranged, many of the rooms have their own personal plunge pools or Jacuzzis for those who wish for a bit of privacy when getting wet.
When visiting Krabi, you'll feel right at home at Frog and Catfish Country Inn Krabi, which offers quality accommodation and great service. The hotel is not too far from the city center: just 15 km away, and it normally takes about 25 minutes to reach the airport.
The 5-star, Lanna-styled Amari Vogue Krabi overlooks the magnificent Tub Kaek Beach, offering guests stunning views and a natural, breezy atmosphere. There are 57 luxurious rooms that offer sea views with islands dotting the horizon.
Krabi Thailand [Kindle Edition]
From archaeological discoveries, it is believed that Krabi was one of the oldest communities in Thailand dating from the prehistoric period. It is also believed that Krabi was once the town of Ban Thai Samo, one of 12 royal cities that used a monkey as the town symbol. Krabi was a dependency town of the Nakhon Si Thammarat Kingdom. Another legend indicates that the town may have taken its name after the meaning of Krabi, which means sword. This may have stemmed from a legend that says an ancient sword was unearthed prior to the city's founding. Later, the sword became a symbol of Krabi.
