56 miles from Patong Bay
A better anchorage, one sheltered from both the northeast and the southwest is between Koh Miang and the small islets to the east in about 10-15 metres on a sandy bottom. Though a strong current runs through the channel, the holding is good.
Closer to the beach on Koh Miang, anchorage can be found in 8-10 metres on a sandy bottom.
Access either to the park headquarters beach or to a smaller beach opposite is easy by dinghy. There’s a trail from the smaller beach to the park headquarters. The snorkelling and diving is excellent around the small islet and among the coral heads, which appear indigo against the intense blue-green of the deep clear water.
