This Hong (Thai for ‘room’) can only be entered by dinghy or small motorboat from the shallow lagoon at high to middle tide or from the open-water entrance on the south-western corner of the island at low tide.

The hong, which gives the island its name, is a stunningly beautiful, enclosed pool with a large rock chimney opening to the sky. Once inside, you will find perfect opportunities for photography, relaxing or exploring.

The noteworthy Mu Koh Hong archipelago is a most striking and unique rock formation. About 12 islets lay in line vertically, stretching from the north to the south in Phang-Nga Bay and the Andaman Sea off Krabi.

Koh Kudu

The island is a small stepping stone located north of Koh Yao Noi. It is destined to be famous once again, as it has been very popular in the past. The surrounding area is relatively quiet for sunbathing and relaxing.

Explore Hok Yao Yai

Koh Yao Yai (Long Island)

The island boasts attractions such as Ao Klong Son (Klong Son Bay), a white sandy beach surrounded by pine trees with a low cliff of colourful rock formations to one side. The bay is a magnet for those interested in coral.

Ao Tee Kood (Tee Kood Bay) also flaunts a stunning, white, sandy beach sheltered by shady pine trees. At Ao Hin Kong (Hin Kong Bay) the beach is shaded by tropical forest, although this area is unsuitable for swimming. The speciality at this location is live fish and rays caught by the mostly Muslim village fishermen.

Koh Phak Bia

This is a small island behind a second island, surrounded by an array of more islands, both small and large, easily accessible from Phuket, Phang Nga or Krabi. Sit and sunbathe lazily on the quiet, shady, tree-dotted beach, or the clear, limpid water is an irresistible invitation to any swimmer. At low tide, this idyllic beach forms a land bridge of sand dunes to its twin.

Koh Phak Bia is a charming island. The most stunning spot is the white sandy cape, surrounded by clear seawater. This is popular with visitors who can enjoy a 360-degree view of numerous tiny islands in the waters around Krabi, Phang Nga and Koh Yao Noi. Experience amazing snorkelling around the sandy cape and glide over colourful coral only 50 metres away.

An island enveloped in natural beauty among clear waters and concealing secluded privacy, Koh Lao La Ding is a small island with a U-shaped white, sandy beach laced between limestone cliffs. It is inhabited by a group of people who have a concession on the swallows’ nests on the cave ceilings, which they guard 24 hours a day. The island offers visitors the opportunity to explore and enjoy swimming in paradise or enjoy sunbathing on the beach, snorkelling, and appreciating the fabulous sights of the emerald sea.
