Trip Planner: Asia / Thailand / Trang Province / Kantang District / Ko Muk / Morakot Cave (Emerald Cave)
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.
