Morakot Cave (Emerald Cave), Ko Muk

(4.6/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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
