Na Muang Waterfall, Ko Samui

(850+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall Nature / Park
Two cascades close together bear the name Na Muang Waterfall--or Purple Falls--so-called because of the colored sheen of the rocks. As you approach the falls, local guides will attempt to charge you for everything from elephant rides to monkey shows, but access costs nothing if you go on foot. There are several steep and slippery sections on the short trek there, however, be cautious. If you have any mobility issues, hire a ride in an all-terrain vehicle. At the falls, you can swim in the plunge pool if you don't mind the murky water.

  • Fantastic feeling to swim in waterfall in a little chilled water! I would suggest everybody to experience this. Easy to get there as road and steps leads almost till water. Water is dull so you cannot see what is below-rocks or water. Should be taken with carefulness. Not suitable for people with disabilities.
  • We were there at about noon time and it wasn't so crowded. Plenty of shade. A nice natural pool with deep and shallow spots. The water wasn't so cold. Just 2 minutes walk from a parking spot (costs 20 baht). The water is not so cold either. To sum things up - Perfect waterfall scenery.
  • Definitely worth going. This place is sick! Highly Recommended. Take your swin gear and enjoy. Free entry and easy to get to.
  • Only s few minutes off the main road, we did not see many tourists on this day. A couple of elephants were behind railings, one of which seemed under stress. The waterfall was pretty and not too high. Bring a swimming short if you want to take a dip in the cooling pool. We did snd certainly quite refreshing.
  • Nature at its finest! What else we need more than just water, trees, waterfall, animals and the voices of nature? Beautiful!
