Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park

Things to see and do

  • Phraya Nakhon Cave
    4 stars

    Phraya Nakhon, located a 45-minute climb from Laem Sala Beach, must be one of Thailand's most photographed caves. It's actually two collapsed sinkholes, with the main attraction a small, quite lovely little pavilion made for King Rama V. At mid-morning when the sun peeks through it's particularly ... read more

  • Beaches around Sam Roi Yot
    3 stars

    While the highlights of Sam Roi Yot are all found at least a few hundred metres inland, the area also has a handful of low-key beaches that are fine for an hour or two of lounging.

    4 stars

    Located a short ride from the main park headquarters in the park's southern reaches, Khao Daeng ("Red Mountain") is the best place in Sam Roi Yot to get a solid hike with breathtaking views as your reward. The trail begins just off the main road and climbs steeply up to the 157-metre-high ... read more

  • Kaew Cave

    Named after gemstone thanks to how the opaque walls glitter when a light is shined on them, Kaew Cave offers a more typical caverning experience than nearby Phraya Nakhon. After renting a headlamp for 40 baht from a man who hangs around near the parking lot, visitors are directed towards a ... read more

  • Khao Daeng Boat Trip
    3.5 stars

    A narrow mangrove-lined river rings around Khao Daeng and makes for a pleasant morning or late afternoon cruise. The trip takes around 90 minutes, going in a semi-loop around Khao Daeng and other striking rock formations. You'll also pass through a mangrove forest where crab-eating macaques can be ... read more
