Shuttle through darkness to emerge at Morakot Cave (Emerald Cave), a white beach completely surrounded by towering cliffs and green vegetation. To reach this attraction, you must take a boat during low tide to a cave entrance, where you then don a lifejacket and swim through the dark tunnel. The surreal experience of emerging into the sunlight-filled cave and soft beach may be slightly dampened by throngs of tourists in high season. Crowds are at a minimum early and late; bring a waterproof flashlight if the pitch-black cave will make you uncomfortable.

The Emerald Cave is a 80 meter long cave you swim trough to get to a hidden laguna. It's packed with tourists swimming in and out the cave, and when you come into the laguna, surprise, there are even more tourists. Despite all the tourists I enjoyed coming here to look at the amazing formations by the nature, and wonder how it's possible for such creations to happen without human intervention.

Even though it is one of the most promoted attraction on 4 islands tours, it is not that astonishing place as one may expect. Moreover, too much crowds just spoil the mood.
Outstanding way to the inner sea lake bellow the cave and nature itself when you reach the place. You fill lile in Indiana Jones movies
wonderful place pirate cave most influenced the accounts after 15 hours when few people are recommended
Amazing. Must see. Go early morning or late afternoon to avoid the 200 baht fee
