Ko Muk Things to Do

  • Emerald Cave

    The boatmen brought us to a not-so-obvious cave opening. I started to panic when he asked us to jump down and swim into the cave.I did it and it was really worth it. As I was swimming into the cave, I was in total darkness for about few minutes!It was a relieve after seeing a light from an opening in front. There was a small beach inside the cave....

  • Tham Morakot, the Emerald Caves

    The Amazing Emerald Cave lies behind the sheer cliffs of Koh Muk. I had to swim slowly (some parts in sheer pitch darkness) through small cavity to the cave about 80 metres away. Inside the Emerald Cave, the waters are gentel and sand white, surrounded by high cliffs and covered by the blue sky. This is one natural wonder that is not available...

  • Relax and lie on the beach

    Absolute best thing to do on Ko Muk (apart from Thai massage by the beach) is to lie down on the sand and catch the sun.Make sure you lather sunblock on yourself before falling asleep :-) And you can't take long naps as you have to turn yourself over to catch the sun ... its something alike a human barbeque !!I did not get burnt like I normally...

  • Thai massage

    The one thing that I wanted to do eversince I was in Thailand and I found it here :-)On Had Farang beach, near to the Sawadee bungalows on the right, you can see a sturdy hut-like covered platform. There was no one around there, so I wandered into the restaurant nearby and asked around. The Thai masseur came by 10 minutes later.He was really good ~...

  • Snorkelling (3)

    I didn't see any big fishes, but many different colourful ones.It seems that sea snakes are not uncommon around Ko Muk; fortunately I didn't see any of them, as they are poisonous and their bite could be lethal. They have a ribbon shape and they are about 1 mt long.

  • Snorkelling (2)

    The coral around Ko Muk is lively.One of the best snorkelling areas is between Farang Beach and the Emerald cave.Some good spots can be reached directly from the beach, but chartering a small boat is better.

  • Snorkelling (1)

    I used a cheap disposable waterproof camera to take some pictures of the underwater world around Ko Muk.You can't go deeper than 1.5 mt with those plastic things.I'm sorry the quality of the pics is not so good: in reality everything was much better!

  • The Emerald Cave (2)

    Entering the Emerald Cave tunnel is not dangerous, but you must be a good swimmer and you must not be afraid of dark.Take also into account that you must enter and then exit only during low tide.Once you're in the tunnel it's a 5 min. swim (about 100mt) through the narrow tunnel to reach the lagoon. The tunnel is not straight and in some parts it...

  • The Emerald Cave (1)

    The Emerald Cave, or "Tham Morakot", is the top attraction on Ko Muk.Located on the rocky western coast of the island, north of Farang beach, this amazing tunnel can be entered by swimming only during low tide. At the end of the 100 mt narrow tunnel there is a stunning c-shaped lagoon, with emerald clear water, a small white beach, palm trees and...

    One daily boat from Hat Pak Meng

    by dabuwan Updated May 22, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is usually one daily boat between Ko Muk and Hat Pak Meng pier in Trang province.
    Departure time is not so fixed and it takes about one hour.
    You can better check in advance with the Ko Muk resort for accomodation availability. Local travel agents can help you.
    Hat Pak Meng is also a very nice place, and spending some hours here waiting for the boat is not bad at all.
    On Ko Muk the boat leaves/departs from the muddy beach close to the resort and the fisherman village. Be prepared to walk with sea water until your knees before reaching the shore.
