Morakot Cave (Emerald Cave), Sikao

(4.6/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • In the morning early preferably. Must swim for 80 m, so a good deal in complete darkness, to get to a beach in nature. A must if you go in the corner!

  • 我们一家4人包了一艘长尾船1500铢到翡翠洞,途中有几个浮潜的地方,可以看到成群的沙丁鱼,非常的壮观。但是人多一点比较好,周围安静得有点让人害怕,因为只有我们一家人在那儿浮潜,所以时间很短我们就离开了,如果有10来个朋友一起去应该很好玩,翡翠洞需要缴纳200铢每人的门票。那里的人很多,80米的黑洞穿越的确考验胆量。但是进去之后还是会有些许失望,没有想象中的惊艳。 
  • departure of kho ngai with a long tail negotiate directly on the beach, approximately 3 minutes to reach this place or the Rangers ask baths for the preservation of the reserve, finally we can put water, strange to enter this tunnel to swim after 5 minutes, fabulous: Paradise

  • 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
