Destination: Koh Phanak

08.10 N 098.29 E

Uninhabited, steep, densely forested island which is riddled with dry caves, sea caves and "hongs". Most of the caves and hongs can safely be explored on foot or by kayak although it is in some cases wise to check the tide tables before setting off. Unless you'd enjoy a night in a cave waiting for the tide to drop so you can get out again, that is.

All around the island it is deep enough to bring the yacht to within touching distance, you do need to take care not to tangle the rig in the many stalactites that hang over the shoreside cliffs though!

Koh Phanak offers, especially in the SW season, several safe anchorages with stunning scenery.

Koh Phanak is part of the Koh Hong National Park.
