In Koh Mook Island, also known as Koh Muk, we self-organized a trip to the Emerald Cave (also called Morakot Cave); without a guide or tour agency. And it was… spectacular. The Emerald Cave in Koh Mook island ends at a “secret” lagoon, that even has it’s very own beach. The lagoon can only be reached if you kayak, or swim through a pitch black, 80-meter long cave. We’d love to tell you more about the Emerald Cave, but before we do, you must know that we experienced a serious kayak-trauma in Thailand.
Eventually, you’ll arrive at one of the most unique and beautiful places in Thailand: a beach surrounded by towering cliffs that are covered with tropical vegetation.
Last year (March 2016) we explored a number of smaller caves at Railay Beach. A great experience, until our kayak capsized and we ended up in the water. No biggie, until we found out that our dry bag wasn’t properly sealed. Farewell brand new SLR camera. So this around time we left our new new camera behind in our room, and only took a mobile phone, dry bag and waterproof flashlight (a must!) with us.
