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....more
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...more
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...more
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 ~...more
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...more
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...more
I specifically looked for this restaurant when I was on the island. My new found dutch friends, recommended this place and made me promise to try look for it and have a meal if I'm in the area. I did. All I can say is that THANK YOU !!!
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.
