About Travel to Koh Libong
Koh Libong is the largest of the cluster of 4 inhabited islands off the West Coast of Thailand in Trang Province.
Larger than Koh Muk, Koh Kradan and Koh Ngai
Unlike the other three islands, Koh Muk, Koh Kradan and Koh Ngai, there is more to Koh Libong than simply beaches, jungle and small range of self sufficient resorts. Koh Libong is also cheaper in terms of accommodation and food than the other islands because it’s less remote. The distance to the mainland is only 3.5 KM.
Koh Libong is approximately 9 km by 8 km at its widest and longest points, with a land area of around 35 square kilometres. The Eastern half of the island is a nature reserve. Most of the resorts on Koh Libong are located on the Western side of the island along the beautiful Haad Lang Khao beach, also known simply as Libong Beach. Basic bungalows near the beach are available from around 1,000 THB a night depending upon the season and at the top end of the range of accommodation, beach front villas cost up to 20,000 THB per night.
In terms of things to do and see, Koh Libong has three main attractions. The first of the these is its main village, Batu Bute. The main religion for the people of Koh Libong is Islam, and the culture and way people live on Koh Libong is a little different to other Thai islands located further North. The most pictureseque aspects of Batu Bute are its houses on stilts over the sea, and the small fishing boats which local people use to make a living from small scale fishing operations.
To the very north of Koh Libong is Saphan Hin, which is a natural sea arch on a fairly desereted beach. The area around the sea arch, also referred to locally as ‘Stone Bridge’, makes a trip to see it worth while.
On the Eastern coast of Koh Libong, and this is the thing which Koh Libong is most famous for, there is one of Thailand’s last surviving communities of dugong, which are large sea mammals that graze on underwater plants. There are several hundred dugongs living off the coast of Koh Libong and they are closely monitored by the Thai authorities. The best way to see the dugongs is to take a boat trip. You can also sometimes see the dugongs from viewpoints in the South and East of the Island, as well as from an observation tower located at the far end of a 1 km pier in Batu Bute.
