Picturesque, quiet and quite extended, Nopparat Tara located next to the most popular beach in the area – Ao Nang. The farther away from Ao Nang, the less civilization on the beach. AT at the end, it completely fades away. At the far end of Ao Nang beach ends with a beautiful casuarin grove and boat pier at confluence of the river in the sea.
The beach is located on the territory of the National Park Hat Noppharat Thara, but is available absolutely free for everyone. However, tourists on the beach is not very much, it is much less popular than neighboring Ao Nang. So here you can enjoy solitude (but not on weekends when Thais come here for a picnic and specifically trash).

The part of the beach that is adjacent to Ao Nang is more infrastructural developed. There are some big expensive hotels, cafes for tourists and entertainment. Along the beach is a road and between it and the sand a narrow strip of trees, a path and a concrete fencing is a favorite resting place of local Thais, especially in weekends.
Towards the end of the beach (if you go from Ao Nang) the strip between expensive and the sea is expanding and there is already a real casuarin forest (nat. park). The beach is not very clean, although the scenic itself imagine, let it and not bounty. Usually, most travels to Ao Nang beach, it is more beautiful.
Entry, depth and waves
In the part of the beach where it adjoins Ao Nang, the sea is very small, knee-deep. On the one hand, children swim comfortably. With another – here, as well as on neighboring beaches, there are strong ebbs, during the time of which the water goes so far that bathing is possible and not think. The bottom of the sea at low tide a little silty, a lot of crabs and small pebbles. The sand on the beach is light gray and yellow.
In the far end of Ao Nang beach, where the river flows into the sea, the sea deeper. It is best to come here, podgadyvaya time for tide table. We did that, otherwise it was first like that – you come, but there is no sea, you had to go back home. We are for ourselves chose about the middle of the beach, where to park the car, relatively clean, few people, far from the river.
Sun beds and shade
Lots of natural shade from trees all over the beach. But Shadow is only before dinner. From time to time throughout the beach also come across benches. Further to the pier along the beach grow high casuarina, there begins already nat. a park. Sun beds on the beach not.
In the far end of Ao Nang beach (right side), where there is a boat dock, far away into the sea is a picturesque sand spit on which you can walk. Especially far you can go at low tide. Immediately located several small rocks overgrown scrub top. Cafes and shops right on the beach practically No, if literally a couple of pieces.
But if you cross the road that runs along the beach, then there is a solid nearby are cafes, shops, salons and trays with stuff – all for the tourist. If you delve into the area, then there you are find 7-11 and a market near a mosque that works for some days.
Houses and hotels on the beach
Almost the only major beach resort here is Holiday Inn. , it is located where the beach of Ao Nang turns into Nopparat Tara, across the road from the sea. There are hotels too, but they cost not on the beach, but across the road from it, while being quite simple, bungalow type. The main part of the hotel a little deeper.
Next to the Holiday Inn there is still one like it – All Seasons Beach Resort . Around the middle of the beach is a guesthouse with good rating and not at all expensive – Massage Corner Guesthouse . Now the area of this beach is being developed and many construction projects have been launched, so that in the future large resorts on the beach probably will be more.
The main part of houses for rent monthly is located in Ao Nang, but in the area of Noporat Tara there are also houses. They are all not quite walking distance from the sea, the closest are 15 minutes on foot, but their Little.
