KOH PHANAK, S’WEST BAY

12 miles from Yacht haven

KOH PHANAK, SOUTHWEST BAY. 8°10.487N, 98°29.230E

A secluded anchorage in approximately 4 metres with good holding on a muddy bottom, the southwest bay is an ideal overnight haven in the northeast monsoon season. There is interesting exploring to be done by dinghy under spectacular limestone overhangs along the entire west coast.

Adjacent to the anchorage, a tide-restricted narrow cave gives access to kayaks at mid-tide for about an hour. If you miss the timing you may have to slither out on your belly in the mud or wait for six hours inside the hong for the next opportunity to escape. Well worth the risk.
