Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot), Krabi Town

3.6
#4 of 15 in Nature in Krabi Town
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.

  • This is a great place. But the Emerald Pool was to crowded when we visited. We reached there by 1PM on a Sunday. The trip is definitely worth taking for the jungle trek and the Blue Pool at the end of...  more »
  • If you go, it's best to go with a guide who knows what to look for in the jungle. Everyone on our tour learned so much more because our guide pointed out lizards, poisonous plants, taught us how Banya...  more »

  • Great walk to emerald pool. It is about 800m from the entrance. The edge of the pool is extremely slippery so you need to be careful when you get in and out. Make sure you walk to the blue pool that is 600m further away. The scenery is amazing and the walk offers so many things to see
  • Very special underground water pond. The water temperature not too chilly, good for swimming. You can relax at the pond site and there are fish swimming around the pool. Even you can see small fish on the tree root ground surrounding there. Many food stalls selling delicious handy foods at the entry roads there, prices are cheap
  • Beautiful, clean swimming pool rewards you after a short (~1.5km) hike. The water is delightful but very, very slippery to get into! The Blue Pool is an extra 600m or so and I was surprised to learn that you can't swim in it. Ever. I'd recommend swimming in the Emerald Pool and then going to the Blue Pool. And then maybe dipping in the Emerald Pool again on your way out ;)
  • Beautiful and refreshing. Loved the swim and the lush forest-like vegetation. Gets pretty busy in season so go early if you seeking tranquillity. Worth the visit!
  • It was a frustration. We expected too much, I guess. But the place is beautiful indeed. A better management however would make the visit feel better. Be prepared to walk long and sloped distances.

Where to stay in Krabi Town

Most accommodations in Krabi Town are located to the southwest of the airport, south of Phet Kasem Road. A selection of boutique hotels jostles for position on the eastern side of the peninsula. The options here can differ greatly in terms of views and facilities, but they are all conveniently located close to the sandy riverbanks. If you're looking for something basic but comfortable, look at the guesthouses and hostels located on side streets just back from the water.
