The secluded beaches of Koh Wua Talap could easily surpass any luxury villas with their gorgeous and beautiful atmosphere. Despite not being the biggest, Koh Wua Talap is known for its importance as the star island of the archipelago with its reputation as the headquarters of the national park. Visitors can expect to take in the most beautiful sight of Thailand where scenic and captivating views that cover the islands and their waters are sure to mesmerize.
Koh Wua Talap is known to be the only destination where overnight accommodation can be found, but do not expect them to be luxurious as you can only find rustic accommodation options here. However, be assured that the rustic accommodation options here in Koh Wua Talap are the best ways for you to embrace the beauty of nature at its wildest. Visitors can expect to choose from a few simple bungalows or even put up tents as this is one of the policies enforced by the government in the hopes of maintaining the beauty and natural state of Koh Wua Talap. One important thing to take note is to place your bookings early as they sell out pretty fast due to the limited number available in order to enjoy the best views of sunrise and sunset while staying overnight.
The Pha Jun Jaras Trail remains to be the viewpoint that visitors should not miss while exploring Koh Wua Talap. Most would find the climb to be quite strenuous as the almost 500 meters climb can be regarded as steep, but the view at the top will make up for it. Be sure to wear decent shoes and choose to climb either early in the morning or late in the evening to beat the humid weather for an easy climb. The Bua Boke Cave is a mysterious cave that is relatively easy to explore as the trek is not that long, although some parts could be tricky and should be trekked with caution. The mysterious atmosphere of the cave is attributed to the light entering both sides of the cave, making it all the more captivating.
