Hong Islands, Krabi Province

4.4
#6 of 29 in Nature in Krabi Province
Cave Island
Explore the secluded Hong Islands, part of the Phang Nga Bay Marine National Park. Featuring the characteristic sheer rock walls of the area, the main island is uninhabited, except for the birds, white-faced gibbons, and giant monitor lizards which can sometimes be spotted lounging on the white sand beach. The island's interior hides a lagoon, accessed via a dramatic cliff passage. Elsewhere, one island holds a sheltered cove home to many birds, and impressive sandbars peek out of the water at low tide. Watch for two decent snorkeling spots. To best see the islands, choose a kayak tour, which allows you to explore the mangroves that surround the islands, and visit the lagoon at low tide when the water changes color from a deep emerald green to a clear turquoise. Make Hong Islands a centerpiece of your Ao Luek vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Ao Luek trip itinerary planner.

  • Pretty Cove and beaches. Too crowded but at least the floating pontoon avoids the boats landed directly on the beach.

  • Go early morning, or late around 2pm. There will be less people. Beautiful beach and water clear crystal with fishes for snorkeling.
  • The sea water was greenish. A young girl was enjoying herself diving into the lagoon waters from the boat. The sandy white beach was clean and the sea water was crystal clear. A pretty relaxing and peaceful place with good scenery. Visiting this island was part of the kayaking trip.
  • Hong islands can be reached within 20 to 30 minutes from Ao Nang by speedboat or 45 minutes by longtail. The islands are the most beautiful place in Krabi province. The main island, Koh Hong is uninhabited, except for the birds, gibbons , lizards or other small primates. The best accessed by Kayak is at low tide. Motor boats (either longtail or speedboats) will go around mid-tide. The entrance to the lagoon is through a fantastic cliff passage.
  • 300TBH national park entry for foreigners. It's a small beach but tranquil. Water is a jade colour but snorkelling visibility was very low when we went yesterday. Go early if possible as place is popular for Chinese tourist groups as they start flooding in around 11am. We took a private tour and explored the surround areas as there are secluded mini islands nearby.
  • The place is nice bcoz the rocks. It would be great if less tourists and more clear water !
