Go by private long tail and try to avoid the boats schedule. or just rent a kayak (no high tide!). it can be funny swimming in the dark to reach this very little "private" beach. Please do it with the sun, colours are extraordinary!

It was a great experience swimming the cave. It was a bit scary at first not knowing how long we have to swim, but at the end there was this amazing lagoon. And I swam with my 1,5 year old child. She was so brave....More

A really pretty spot. We were staying on Koh Mook so we went early in the morning before it got busy. A lovely swim through the cave to an awesome swim spot in the middle. The colours of the cave are incredible

this is a must visit place while in Koh mook or in nearby islands. You have to swim a bit inside a cave to reach the beach, but when you do you are truly amazed. It definitely worths visiting!!!

Expected maybe the spectacular as it's biĺled as best in Thailand. I went on a tour with Phuket Sail Tours and the one we went with them to was far superior.

I wouldn’t recommend if you aren’t a confident swimmer. The waves can swell and require lots of paddling through the cave in the dark (with headlamps only).

I recommend you hire a private boat and tell them to take you there during less busy time, we did that. Pay a little more but it will all be worth it. We got there when the big groups were leaving, so there were about seven... More
