Enjoy the stunning vistas, sampling your chef’s homemade Tod Man Pla, Yam Neua Thai Beef Salad and spicy Thai Green Curry.

Discover the Emerald Cave early to see the wonder at its best before sailing south-west past Ko Kradan towards the spectacular Ko Rok.

We’d suggest aiming to arrive at lunch so that you can get a good mooring, enjoy the beach and get the best catch from the local fishermen.
