Koh Liang Nua and Koh Liang Tai are tall limestone islands similar to those of Phang Nga Bay. The only reasonable anchorages lie on sandy patches on the southeast, northeast (B) and west sides (C) of Koh Liang Tai.
Take special care in anchoring, as the reef edge extends some 250 metres offshore and rises vertically from 6 metres. On the sandy patches it’s best to drop the hook in 8-10 metres, well off the reef edge.
There are a few small backpacker rock-climbing resorts ashore with basic Thai fare restaurants. There‘s also a small Sea Gypsy village where seafood and coconuts can be acquired for money or barter. The small islets of Koh Bulao Bot and Hin Bae Wa are safely accessible from the west. They provide a great snorkelling and fishing day anchorage, but only in calm conditions.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only. They should not be used for navigation. Please refer to Official Hydrographic Charts of the respective countries.
