Ao Mai Ngam is on the northwest coast of the North Surin Island. Most of the coral is located over two hundred meters out from the beach itself. During low tides of the full or new moon, one can walk and wade out to the coral. During high tide, one must swim out. The water is calm except during the monsoon season.
To get to Ao Mai Ngam, you can hike along the two thousand meter hiking route where you can enjoy nature study in the jungle paths (this trip takes approximately one to one-and-a-half hours). Otherwise, one can take a small boat to get there.
Big boats are not allowed as the water is too shallow. After the short boat ride, one must take a shortwalk of two hundred meters to get to Ao Mai Ngam.
