Destination: Koh Hong Krabi Archipelago

08.03 N  98.41 E 

A cluster of some thirty small islands plus a few larger ones. None have permanent habitation.

The islands are high, steep and densely forested so the scenery is splendid. Many of the small islands have inviting beaches but anchoring is often difficult as it is deep until right close in. A multihull can be nosed on the beach for a brief stop in these cases.

The largest island of the group, Koh Hong Krabi (East), has a spectacular near-landlocked lagoon which is not to be missed. Its only acess to the sea is through a narrow opening in the towering cliffs which surround it. If the tide is right you can (just) take the yacht inside otherwise you use a dinghy or kayak or you swim.
