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!!!

You have to swim or go by kajak inside the cave and you get to the small bech which is hidden inside. Very insteresting place. But be prepare that you are in the National park and you have to pay 200bht by entrance.

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
