Mu Ko Ang Thong National Marine Park, Ang Thong

4.4
#3 of 12 in Nature in Ko Samui
Mu Ko Ang Thong National Marine Park encompasses an archipelago of 42 rugged, densely forested islands dotting turquoise blue water. This scenic spot offers plenty of things to do, all organized in tour packages by local operators. Kayak around the islands or snorkel among coral with colorful schools of fish and sea urchins. Adventure by land by donning proper climbing equipment and exploring the mountains on foot. Alternatively, just post up at one of the sandy bays or lagoons, relax, and swim. You'll find small local restaurants throughout and bars serving plenty of Thai food and cold beer. The archipelago is accessed by speed-boat; prepare for a slightly bumpy ride.

  • We left from Koh Samui speedboat. Support took care of our comfort. In the first stage of the dopłyenliśmy to the first stop in which schedule was diving. Not special, a lot of junk. The rest was much better. Szmaradgowe Lake, wonderful. Another island on kayaks, wonderful, we decided on it remain and pohuśtać on the swing. Otani in a wonderful dinner, a simple but delicious, local restaurant by the sea.

  • Word of advice. Be very careful to sun exposure even if it is cloudy. Use plenty of sunblock, drink water and cover your head. It is a gorgeous trip. I used Orion company but others may be just as good.. Save energy for the mountain viewpoint on the way back.
  • This place took my breath away! It was absolute true paradise! Simply a must do! We went in a tour group, which left from the Fisherman Village, and we took a speedboat over. I believe the journey took around an hour, then we went for a snorkel by an island named 'Monkey Island' (it looked like a monkey). that was AMAZING! Beautiful fish to be seen everywhere! Then we were dropped off on a secluded beach, just the tour group of around 8 people were there! The waters were calm, warm and crystal clear! Close your eyes, imagine a beach scape paradise... THIS IS IT! The sand was white and powdery and all you could see when you look out to see were blue waters with islands surrounding you. Heaven! We also stopped off at the Emerald Lagoon, which we had to climb 256 steep stairs to see, totally worth it! I stood in awe at natures beauty for ages, I've never seen a lagoon in such a peaceful state and so lush with colour! You are able to head down on to a platform within the lagoon itself, when there you can see awesome sea life enjoying their selves in the clear waters beneath! Make this place a priority when visiting the Gulf Islands!
  • Wonderful place to visit but the herds of people destroy the atmosphere.
  • I've gone with the safari boat tour to this beatiful place. It really worths it!
  • Koh Phangan is my absolute favorite island. The Mu Koh Angthong National forest is a must see.
