Emerald Pool

Thai name : สระมรกต

GPS : 7.925077,99.268118 (See on the map)


Krabi province is known for its islands and beautiful beaches but there is another place getting more and more famous for swimming: the Emerald Pool (Sra Morakot in Thai). This natural pond, located about fifty kilometers from Krabi or Ao Nang, owes its name to its limpid green emerald waters.

From the parking lot, there are two routes to the Emerald Pool, the main road, continuing straight after the ticket office and the trail road. The trail way is quickly on the right after entrance. It is 1.4 km long but so much nicer that the big path going directly from entrance to the pool. Note that besides the Emerald Pool which you will sometimes find also under the name of Emerald Pond, there is another pond, the Sra Kaew and the magnifiscent ''Blue Pool'', 600 meters after the Emerald Pool. Do not miss it ! It would be a shame to come here and not to see the intense and natural blue color of Blue Pool.
