About Koh Mook
Koh Mook (Muk) is a small rocky island off the coast of Trang province. On the east side, the island has a long sandy peninsula. Here lays a fishing village of the sea gypsy people and a coconut plantations. The village offers no tourist facilities, no shop, no restaurant and no ATM machine. At the end of the peninsula, beautiful Sivalai Beach Resort was built some years ago. The close proximity to the fishing village and the mainland result in some noise from longtail boats tht passes the peninsula all day long.
In the southwest of the island is a large bay with a beautiful sandy beach. Since Koh Mook has no pier, daily excursion boats stop here to unload guests at Koh Mook Charlie resort. Like Koh Ngai, the neighbour island, more an more guests arrive at Koh Mook, either as day trip visitors or as guests for some holidays. Koh Mook´s special attraction is the Emerald Cave located at the steep and rocky westcoast. A low tide, it is possible to swim into the cave. Not much can be done on Koh Mook. Swimming, sun bathing, kayaking or relaxing in the shade of the trees is the choice. Day trips to Koh Kradan are worthwhile.
How to get there
Fly to Krabi (AirAsia) and come by expressboat via Koh Lanta or fly to Trang (Nokair or AirAsia) and take the speedboat from Kuan Tungku pier on the Trang mainland. A daily boat leaves Koh Lanta at 9 a.m. from Ban Saladan. It stops at Koh Ngai and Koh Mook, after some snorkelling stops are completed (this may take some time). Boat connections to other places and times are possible by longtail boats on an individual basis, but quite expensive.

Accommodation [links to r24.org*]
On the west coast lays Koh Mook Charlie Resort with simple and comfortable bungalows at reasonable prices and a good restaurant. Unique in location and facilities is Koh Mook Sivalai Resort, a nice resort on a very special beach place. The possible activities on that peninsula however are very limited.
The other resorts on Koh Mook are very simple and the beaches are not the cleanest.
