Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot), Krabi Town
(3.6/5 based on 1,100+ 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).

  • Entrance centuries Park 200 baht per person. Concrete paths through the Park. In the middle of the Lake route where all basking. People mngogo any and all very funny. Maybe it's all the composition of the water so the people affected. Blue Lake itself like a big puddle. Sorry didn't read the previous review. Wasted time spent and not justifiable expensive entrance. Example entry on salt hot springs 100 Baht. The place is just raskruchnno. Included in the trurristicheskij route.

  • Nice place but not amazing. We rented a scooter and drove from Ao Nang. It was a bit too far but encountered a great place to eat on the way there. Don't carry too much stuff to this place. You have t...  more »
  • I'm a fan of the basins, nature ect... At home I spend my time to relax me there. I was disappointed on back in a national park and having to pay (400bts the visit for two 40 for parking)... we drove ready from 1 h 30 to at least see that emerald pool... 2 other points being closed and the crystal pool we noticed it at the end because it does not flow (in pond). It is beautiful the pool really, but I was disappointed. I think especially of the fact that front we have a thai didn't want to pay the friend (s), there chat with the guardian, two small jokes after the entry for them six free. .. .While we were we forced to Bank... not cool.

  • 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.
