Ao Ka Beach – Talay Nai

Here if you have chosen Kayaks, you get off the boat and kayak around and make your way to Koh Mae Koh.

If you have not chosen kayaks, you stay on Orion and we dock next at Mae Koh, which leads to Talay Nai, the beautiful Emerald Lake.

For those that choose kayaks, we drop you off and get you suited up for your short kayak tour to Mae Koh taking in the caves and cool rock structures as we make our way to meet up with the other passengers.

Koh Mae Koh - Emerald Lagoon Talay Nai

Make sure you have good footwear!

On Mae Koh we visit the beautiful emerald lagoon Talay Nai, surrounded by steep limestone cliffs, where the scenes are breathtaking. A short, steep climb to the viewing platform offers a stunning panorama of the picturesque islands that Form the National Marine Park on one side, and a breathtaking view of the emerald lagoon on the other.

Please note some of there stairs are very steep it is advise that you wear proper footwear for this part of the tour. If you would like to relax at this stop you also have the option of relaxing on the beach and snorkelling or swimming.

Koh Wua Talap Island

Our last stop on our day tour and one of the most breathtaking views in Thailand!

Here you can choose to go to see the caves with beautiful limestone formations which is about 50 minutes walk or to the view point, or just relax and enjoy the beach, and see the monkeys. Probably one of the best hikes in the islands of the Gulf of Thailand. Here,there is apath leading up the side of the rocks. This will take maybe 30 minutes to walk up, and well worth it. But be warned, this is not a hike for the faint hearted.

Make sure you have good footwear as there are sharp limestone crags which will be your foothold, especially towards the peak. With a breathtaking view of all the Ang Thong islands, the end result of the hike is well worth it. This trek will justify the trip to Ang Thong alone, but please be warned, this is a tough and steep climb!!!
