Must see · Cave · Nature / Park
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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Ko Muk trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Except the massive amounts of tourists going here it is a nice beach which you reach after swimming through a short cave. We expected that to be much longer. However, if you are lucky you might hit a time without too many boats and maybe you can also go there by kayak. That way you can enjoy a wonderful beach for your self!
  • This place is amazing! You cross the cave and end up on a beautiful beach inside the island which was a former pirate bay. 100% recommended.
