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.

  • For foreigners visiting worth 200 baht per person, up to the Lake laid track length of 800 meters. The lake itself is a big puddle with a huge number of people, especially local, which swim in clothes. Water Emerald, really fresh. But there was no desire to swim.

  • Here, good morning, water will have to come to the little bit very clear because people still do it? Free car parking fee is 20 per person, each 30 baht for food are prohibited to bring into the drinking water side in each bottle. And during the entrance there is a restaurant with a grocery store, where the price is not expensive at regular price in the market, such as a beach or a set of slippers phloe cheaper markets.

  • I spent an hour by ferry from Phuket, Krabi arrive after car went in the one hour call. Emerald pool and arrived, several hundred yen (baht) to pay entry fee and walk for 15 minutes, because he was wearing a swimsuit as in-situ swam in the clothes off. Ground is slippery was the very memories in nature. Because they were tourists from there when I was there.

  • 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.
