About Koh Muk
Koh Muk is one of a cluster of four islands to the South of the larger and more popular Koh Lanta. The other three islands are Koh Libong, Koh Kradang and Koh Ngai. It is possible to travel between these islands by longtail boat. Koh Muk is a small island with a couple of nice beaches, some limestone cliffs and a very laid back atmosphere. It is a welcome alternative to other overdeveloped islands in the Andaman Sea.
The thing which Koh Muk is best known for, however, is the Emerald Cave, also known as Morakot Cave. This is a spectacular natural wonder. To enter the Emerald Cave you first swim through a dark cave to emerge into a lagoon and beach enclosed by steep limestone cliffs. Legend has it that pirates once used Morakot Cave as a hiding place for their stash of valuables.
