Hong’s lagoon is where the island’s name comes from. Hong in Thai means “room”. The lagoon looks like a huge hall in the middle of the sea covered by walls of steep rocky hills of the island. Through a dramatic cliff passage is the only one way to access the lagoon. It is so named Hong, or room.
Koh Hong lagoon
Ko Hong lagoon is best accessed by kayak at low tide to take pleasure in its shallow emerald green water, only a few inches deep. Long tail boat can only enter around mid-tide when the water is around chest level. To get the best pictures, the dramatic cliff passage should be photographed on your way out.
This is a small island that has got bird’s nest concession. (We are unable to visit the martin nesting cave because of the ownership of private companies.) We will bring you to view the quiet and peaceful atmosphere on this island. Krabi people call this island “Koh Lading”. But foreign tourist call it Paradise island because Lading is too difficult to pronounce and because of its peaceful environment as in the paradise, the tourist then call it Paradise island.
The Pakbia Island is a small island in Hong island chain. The island is formed by limestone. With it’s countless rocky outcrops. So, it makes the island looks like a garden full of mushrooms emerge from the sea surface which can be seen clearly during the low tide. Furthermore, further north of Hong island, both Pakbia island and Rai island have impressive sandbars revealed at low tide which connects the two islands.
Red island or Daeng island is named because of its color that looks like a pile of brown-red stones in the middle of the sea. It is located between Lading island and Hong island. Daeng island has got a clear water full of all kinds of sea creatures which makes it one of the best shallow diving spots.
