My wife and I decided to visit Ko Hong and pay for a private long tail boat. The cost was 2000 baht (inclusive) and we were dropped off at 0810 and the first visitors on the island. It was as close to paradise as you can get before the hordes arrive. The sand is like talcum powder and we did a couple of nature trails.
You cannot access the lagoon on foot.

Once all the other day trippers turned up, it became a free for all. There is a designated swimming area and you have to wear a life jacket as the rangers will constantly remind you. The snorkelling is ok as we saw lots of parrot fish.

The longtail boat man arrived at the prescribed time to collect us and took us to the lagoon, which frankly didn’t blow us away. We moved on to Monkey island where although you don’t get off the boat, you can still feed them.

By paying a little extra for a private long tail boat, you can have as long as you want on the island. You tell him where to go and he will. You avoid the crowds, you’re not dictated by time and you’re not squeezed on a long tail boat with people shoving cameras in your face.

Yes, you pay 300 baht each as it’s a national park, but that is the norm in Thailand now.

I am able to seek the island that is rather private than the others, this Koh Hong can give answer my topic. I can some clown fish in the water but i travel here in rainy season. There is some problem of the island that there are many woods bits or logs bits that float on the water for this season.

It is nice place to hangout and chill but for foreigners it is 300 baht which I feel its worth it!

Sometimes you cant access to the lagoon due to low tide. But guides always say can access via kayaking. However,noone will leads you and you are on your own if anything happened. So, go ahead and rent a kayak.

Then it's low tide, then there are a lot of rocks at the seabed even when it is near the beach. Makes it hard to snorkel as you may hit the rocks. Nevertheless, the beach is nice and long. sand is soft!

Ko Hong is certainly one of the most beautiful islands in the Krabi area. Unfortunately its natural beauty and closeness to Ao Nang, generates an endless stream of longtail boats that unload thousands of tourists onto its shores. The only way to enjoy the spectacular beach is to organize your own trip and get there by 8am, then you will have a couple of hours of its unspoiled beauty to enjoy. When the crowds arrive you can go and visit any of the other countless islands in the area, which being less famous do not attract nearly as much interest.

We knew it would be busy going in peak season, but it really does take away the beauty and serenity of these wonderful karst islands with the amount of boats and volume of tourists. 300bht each to land on the island, food and drink available, along with basic facilities. The best part of this island is the hidden lagoon which had less tourists.

As much as the island is beautiful. You will never be able to see it in it's full glory. It is the idyllic James Bond island scene...beautiful clear waters,,,lovely to snorkel around in . But ...the locals and sheer volume of tourists have turned this place into a nightmare. I thought James Bond Island was bad...This comes in as a close second. Boats are coming in and out non stop. Beach is very seldom short of 'packed' You have pay to visit the island which goes towards conservation. I doubt you will be able to take a picture without at least 10 people hovering in the background. We were lucky we went EARLY in the day It's sad really. But I guess it's the way of the world..

Ko Hong or Hong Island and all other islands in the Andaman Sea are some great wonders of Mother Nature. It is surprising to see the cliffs standing all vertically in the sea waters. Most of them are vertical. One can look at them and keep on pondering for hours, how did they form, since when, and how are they standing like that. There are certain beauties that can only be felt but difficult to explain. The cliffs in Andaman Sea of Thailand are something like that. Snorkelling is definitely very enjoyable for young people. But both my wife and I are quite aged for such adventure.

We booked private long tail boat from khlong muang beach for full day trip to 3 islands. This was last stop at afternoon. Must say that it is nice and worth to visit but really growded. Sand at the beach was extremely soft. I also searched and found geocache just 50m from beach.
