    Beautiful beaches and clean National park with clean toilet facilities,

    The sand is easy on the fretboard nice to swim in the lifeguard protected areas,however neglect has claimed the nature trail as it is hazardous even the most agile of athletes. Loose tile, overgrown oaths lead you up up up to a totally blocked cure by overgrowth.

    You are deposited at the end if the trail on beaches that are not kept clean.

    If you stay in the main section of the park you will d joy your day,

    It’s indeed a Long Beach. We walked there for 4km. It would be too hot under the sun, but walking there after 5pm was pleasant. Plenty restaurants and bars for you to stop by. The beach was clean and full of hermit crabs. You can rent kayaks or SUPs from nearby hotels, but recommend to do so in early mornings when sea is relatively flat. Good for family visit. But if you want to come for souvenirs, this is not the place.

    We didn't stay long but the atmosphere was very nice and the view from the pier impressive! Some lovely, exceptionally clean, restaurants overhanging the bay sure could do with the business.

    A long golden sand beach backed by a few resorts and a whole range of bars and restaurants which all seem to offer good quality cheap food and happy hour(s) cocktails. Most offer deck chairs and sun umbrellas for free with little or no pressure to order food or drinks. Try Jai-Dee Home, my favourite.

    We had been here before earlier in the year but on this occasion decided to “do” the walk through the rain forest. Entrance to the National Park is not free and if you are a foreigner( even if you live in Thailand) the entry fee is 200 baht. Fee for the car plus Thai driver is 70 baht.
    There’s plenty of car parking, toilets and a small shop and staff are very helpful.
    The path leading immediately from the car park into the forest was closed due to a fallen tree so the walk starts from the far end of the beach. It is quite steep in places and slippery so proper footwear is essential. Their are certainly some challenges! There’s a couple of places where a small concrete bridge crosses what might be a stream bed…the only problem being that much of the bridge has disappeared so, unless you can balance on a concrete beam a few centimeters wide, a detour is necessary.
    As you gain height, there are some wonderful views down to the sea as well as magnificent trees soaring up to the canopy. We did spot briefly some spectacles langurs but whilst they kept an eye on us for some considerable time, we couldn’t always see them.
    Depending on who you ask, the walk is anything between 2.5 km to 3.5km! Time wise, it really depends how much notice you take of them tress, plants and wildlife.
    Despite some of the difficulties, it is well worth attempting this walk for a rain forest experience. Not sure how suitable it would be for young children.
    Proper footwear, some water and a fully charged camera battery are essential!

    Lovely long sandy beach, ideal for walking (or running). Some rocks at one end. Lovely to swim when tide is in.
    Plenty of bars and restaurants on the beach, which comes alive at night. Not too noisy just a friendly atmosphere.

    Another of the lovely beaches in the south of Koh Lanta, almost deserted when we went. Definitely worth a visit.

    Snorkelling trip. Speedboat picked us up at the beach at our hotel Long Beach Chalet. First stop Koh Rok and since we arrived first the girls had the beach to themselves while we boys did some snorkelling.

    Very nice beach. The lunch we got served tasted very good. There is a small kiosk on the island as well. Rangers look after the beach and secure tourists behave accordingly.

    Remember to wear sandals/shoes on the floating dock which is VERY hot.

    Just recalled the memorable trip on Koh Jum Island. It's kinda basic and relax place for someone who seeks for the pleasant and beachfront accommodation with a small budget. Even though some beaches are quite rocky, they probably replace the weak point of them with the seaview.

    It's easy to get there both of ferry and minibus (song taew). Ferry from Klong Jirad, Krabi Town to Koh Jum will cruise and operated by Lanta Super Concorde and Andaman Wave Master on Nov to Mar. Transferring via Mainland will be the best way if you visit there on low season around Apr to Oct. You can hop on minibus at River View Hotel in Krabi Town for going to Laem Kaurd Pier or at bus stop in front of Krabi Airport. After that taking a daily boat to Mutu Pier which departs nearly every hour from 9 A.M. til 18.00.

    Maybe Koh Jum isn't the best snorkelling site in Krabi but there are the neighbor trips such as 4 Islands of Lanta archipelago, 4 Islands of Trang Sea and Koh Rok that you are able to enjoy while staying in this low-key island

    If you like walking it's ok to visit for a couple of hours but there's not much of a waterfall in the dry season. The caves are worth a look with some MASSIVE spiders!

    Expect a workout, you will sweat from the inclination during tracking through the woods and inside the cave (30min to cave,1h in cave and 30 min back). Wear appropriate clothes, sneakers or tight fitting shoes with good grip, no flip-flops. Entrance fee + guide 300thb/person. Inside the cave there are a few glimmering limestone formations, bats and spiders. But the cave in itself is impressive with its more horizontal formation. There are quite a few ladders inside, with 40-50cm between steps. However the ladders are sturdy, even for a 95kg person. In the end you will need to walk on all fours to get out. So this is an experience for the more adventures person but worth trying if you want to do something different. I have never experienced something similar before, even if I have been into a handful different limestone caves in my life. Our guide did not speak much (no safety instructions etc. but what should you expect in Thailand?), he was more of the “show the way and point out”-type. But my feeling was that he understood me quite well and even if he answered in a simple way he answered my questions, so I was satisfied.
