Morakot Cave (Emerald Cave), Sikao
(4.6/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Shuttle through darkness to emerge at Morakot Cave (Emerald Cave), a white beach completely surrounded by towering cliffs and green vegetation. To reach this attraction, you must take a boat during low tide to a cave entrance, where you then don a lifejacket and swim through the dark tunnel. The surreal experience of emerging into the sunlight-filled cave and soft beach may be slightly dampened by throngs of tourists in high season. Crowds are at a minimum early and late; bring a waterproof flashlight if the pitch-black cave will make you uncomfortable. Add Morakot Cave (Emerald Cave) to your Sikao travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Sikao holiday planner.

  • An awesome experience swimming through the cave with tour guides that takes good care of the tourists. 
  • Now I'm an extremely non-confident swimmer & usually scared with all things water but I absolutely loved this experience. The flotation vest gives you great buoyancy but the boat crew also reassure & ...  more »
  • We visited the Emerald (Morakot) Cave in low season, consequently this was visited by only 18 people the morning we went which was most pleasent. We were on a trip from our Hotel the Anantara Si Kao, ...  more »

  • Well worth a visit. Anchored outside and took the dingy through. Need to turn the engine off and paddle through. We were at low tide. 1.6m an it had plenty of space but another meter of tide would have made it tricky. You could still swim through though.
  • Not going while you're on koh muk would be a mistake. Take a kayak from Charlie or a long tail boat from the other side of the island.
  • Lovely little swim into the lagoon and small beach, very crowded.
  • It's really breathtaking inside the cave. Take a moment to enjoy the Beauty of Mother Nature.
  • best to come early or it can be rather busy inside the cave and beach. after a short swim you are rewarded with a perfect paradisiacal beach
