Chicken Island is also known as Koh Kai, Koh Gai or Koh Hua Khwan.
This small and unusual looking island is situated just south of Poda and Tup Islands about 30 minutes by longtail boat from the west coast of Krabi.
Koh Kai received it’s more commonly known name as Chicken Island because of a large rock formation that undoubtedly resembles the head and neck of a chicken.
Koh Kai is somewhat of a local landmark; on one side there is sheer cliffs that are covered in vegetation, while the other side boasts a beautiful beach.
What makes this spot so different from the other islands around Krabi is witnessed on low tide when a sandbar emerges from the water.
This sandbar connects Chick
en island to the two smaller islands of Koh Mor and Tup in effect making the three islands become one.
This picturesque and unique occurrence is commonly referred to as Talay Waek.
When the tide is low you are able to walk across the y shaped sandbar from Koh Kai to the other islands of Koh Mor on the left or Tup on the right.
The whole area is simply stunning with panoramic views of the Krabi coastline in the background.
Snorkelling around the waters is fantastic with spectacular coral reefs and an abundance of tropical fish that literally eat out of your hand.
This is just one of the islands you get to visit if you do the Four Island Tour from Krabi.
