10 miles from ao Nang , Krabi
National Parks moorings are provided or the bay provides protection with good holding in 15-20 metres. In the southwest monsoon season an uncomfortable ground swell sometimes curves around the eastern headland. Koh Hong is so named because of its large internal lagoon, accessible only by dinghy across a shallow reef on tides above 1 metre.
This large hong has a small entrance which sometimes has gill nets strung across its width on the ebb tide. The Hong, about 200 metres across, is the biggest in the area, and the sheer cliffs on all sides make a picturesque backdrop for photography. You can swim in the hong at high tide.
East of the entrance to the hong is a superb silica sand beach nestled between two small cliffs. At the far eastern end of the beach and behind the undergrowth is a small entrance to a deep amphitheatre limestone cave complete with bats, stalagmites and stalactites. Bring a flashlight.
