Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot), Krabi Town

3.6
#3 of 10 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.

  • The waters are murky Crystal by supposedly amount of people who visit and take showers. Very slippery at the entrance. The best entrance and around the Park in the gangway which is located to the right, then Yes, you will see the crystal-clear waters in rivers that are in the Park

  • The Emerald Pool is very nice. However, do plan properly your trip if you want to visit the Blue Pool as it will closed from May to October for bird mating.
  • A great place for the whole family. It's a 1.4km walk through the jungle which is worth it by it's self. The pool is amazing. Be very careful for the rocks as they are very slippy.
  • Emerald pool was absolutely amazing! The crystal clear water was totally picturesque - it almost didn't seem real. My sister & I had a really tranquil & peaceful experience - we would definitely come back! Unfortunately the infamous blue pool was closed when we were there though - it's only open to the public from November to April. However, a wary note, be sure to get here early (the park opens at 8am) - we were leaving around 10-10:30 & saw at least 100 people​ making their way to the pool (which is definitely not big enough to hold everyone!).
  • Nice place to visit for a quick swim in a hot day. 800m. Walk to the swimming pool. Nice temperature of water, water is refreshing.
  • Wonderful pool with limestone hill view. Some place is prohibited for tourist to enter, the limestone slope. The Blue Pool also closed after 3 pm. Really beautiful natural green algae after effect. The small waterfall near the entrance also won't disappoint you. In case you're too tired to walk few miles up to the pool. The forest also well kept with many tropical plants to learn about.
