Krabi Private Transfer & Tours
This 'island of rooms' is the perfect escape destination. A wonderful island location renowned for its breathtaking beauty, shallow coral reefs and fine, sandy beaches. In the middle of the half-circle shaped island lies the 'secret' lagoon, where you can find yourself at one with nature. Picnic lunch and time for swimming, snorkelling and exploring. Relaxing and fun.
The Hong Islands in Krabi are four secluded islands known as the Koh Hong group and situated northwest of Ao Nang in the middle of Phang Nga Bay with rocky outcrops. Its little bay and beach is perhaps one of the most picturesque spots in the entire Andaman Sea which is worth visiting.
The large lagoon in the middle of Koh Hong is best reached by kayak when the tide is low. The colour of the lagoon makes a dramatic change from emerald green to turquoise blue during low tide. The impressive cliff passage which leads to the lagoon surrounded by mangroves and is one of the most photographed landmarks. Low tides also reveal impressive sandbars on the islands of Koh Rai and Koh Pakbia.
The main Koh Hong Beach is an ideal place to learn how to snorkel because rock cliffs protect the beach on three sides. A narrow entrance leads to the open sea, which is shallow enough for snorkelers to see hundreds of tropical fish while simply standing in the water. However, visitors should watch out for sharp coral which sticks out from the sand when walking on the beach during low tide.
It takes about an hour to kayak around the Koh Hong coastline, which is filled with unique limestone karsts. It took millions of years to create these limestone stone pillars coated with thin soil layers. There are no private beaches, resorts or any other development on the Hong Islands because of their national park status. A private tour is especially recommended and you should plan to visit early or late, since it has been discovered and midday sees larger groups arriving for an hour.
