Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot), Krabi Town

(3.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Plunge into the warm, clear waters at Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot), a hot spring tucked away in a thick forest. The main spring has become famous for its turquoise color, and is as good for a relaxing swim as it is photogenic. Take a hike through the area to enjoy the lush woods, and consider arranging for a guide to show you around and point out all the animals that call this edenic landscape home. Make sure to explore as much of the area as possible: plenty of more secluded pools are hiding off the beaten track. Before you head to Krabi Town, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Krabi Town vacation planner, to make sure you see all that Krabi Town has to offer, including Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot).

  • 我們住在奧南海灘附近,開車過來要一個小時左右感覺很遠,其實本來我們不是很期待這裡的,因為前兩天我們才去海上浮潛啊游泳啊什麼的,但是這裡水很清澈,熱帶雨林的植被也值得一看,下水游泳的人也非常多,因為周圍有樹林的遮擋,池子有一部分是不會曬到太陽的,怕曬的也同樣可以下水喔。 
  • Walk 1 km 4 to go to the source and swim... go in early afternoon, much less crowded, avoid weekends, then 800 m market for Blue Lagoon... swimming prohibited, beautiful blue... put sneakers to go to the Blue Lagoon... nice site

  • Not bad for fun swimming with family. The walking is a bit far almoat 800 meters away from the front entry but you can enjoy the jungle scenery. The pool is nice with good view.
  • The place is quite difficult to get to, despite having GPS (which lead us through single track in oil palm plantations). Tourist entrance fee is exorbitant (THB 100!) & the pool itself is a bit of a disappointment. I did enjoy going around the short hike towards the blue pool deeper into the park (it had a very "Mononoke" vibe) & reading about the unique geology of the area.
  • A great couple hours out of the day, a nice place to meet local Thai people if you go on the weekend. A very happy place to be with everyone around you enjoying themselves and having fun :) The pool itself is beautiful though if you want to see it for its 'beauty' you'll need to work out when to come in it's quietest times as it's more like a big natural swimming pool when it's busy. The water is cloudy as there is so much action going on around. Midweek early morning would be the best time to come I imagine.
  • Very nice scenery. The water is superb quality and green emerald colour. Must walk about 1 km to reach to emerald pool, another 1 km to blue pool. SNEEKER is recommended.
  • Its a nice place, gets busy sometimes so I go to the blue pool to meditate. Emerald pool walk is cute, serene and somewhat scenic if you take the path on the right at after the entrance. Much more pleasant early in the morning.
