Highlights of Koh Hong

The Koh Hong archipelago consists of about a dozen islands but most are so tiny that they don’t have beaches of their own but the biggest island has several lovely beaches. However things rarely get crowded here as there’s so much to do.

What puts Koh Hong on top of many visitors’ itineraries is its spectacular rock formation and its breathtaking natural lagoon surrounding by majestic limestone formations. There is only one way to enter this inner lake; the entrance channel’s width is about 10 metres, therefore you can easily get in with a long-tail boat or a kayak. The water is not deep, just about one metre, perfect for leisurely swim.
