KOH LIPE NORTH
These anchorages, one located opposite a Thai fishing station and a large sea gypsy village, the other to the east near the islets offer reasonable overnight anchorage.
Anchorage (C) is among moorings in 12-15 metres on a muddy bottom. There are restaurants, limited fuel, water and a fisheries museum ashore at the National Park HQ. Anchorage (D) [6°29.725N, 99° 18.765E], just west of Hin Takon Dukang, is better in the southwest season in 8-10 metres. Anchorage is also available on the east coast off Sunrise Beach between the two islands to the east of Koh Lipe in 15-20 metres.
To the north, across the channel, on the southern tip of Koh Adang is another gypsy village with a jetty in a sandy lagoon, which can be accessed by dinghy.
