Morakot Cave, Mook Island, Trang
Morakot cave is a hidden treasure waited to be explored. Visitors have to swim to the entrance and discover a big chamber without a ceiling so the sunlight can shed inside this cave. The beauty that the visitors can witness inside the cave is white delicate sand with an emerald colored sea.
It takes around thirty minutes to travel from Kuan Toong Ku ferry landing to Koh Mook. The ferry will take visitors to the entrance of the cave where there is a small hollow that only small boats can enter during the ebb tide time. Tourists have to wear life vests and swim across to the other side of the cave which is 80 meters long. The tour guides have to check the daily ebb tide before bringing visitors inside.
The other side of the cave is a white delicate sandy beach with many rare trees. If the weather is nice, the sun will shine through the trees and reflect on white sand.
