Koh Mapring (4) – Beautifully Made by Nature

The Island of Koh Mapring (4) is located in the south-westernmost in a group of three islands off the northwest coast of Koh Rang. It is a rocky land mass where vegetation is mostly green bush, small trees and wild plants. Its exterior outlay is not inviting. It looks nearly barren. The frequent visits to Koh Mapring (4) are geared for snorkeling activities. It can be reached by motorized boats or speedboats from the nearby Koh Rang Island. As observed many tourists drop by the island for lunch on its limited beach front area which is relatively coarse and rocky.


Koh Mapring (4) Island is site to tourists who loves the adventure of snorkel and scuba. Its rocky seabed is home to diverse marine life. It is significantly an underwater world of beauty. The variety of fishes are relatively tamed and fun to play with especially when feeding them.  Underwater gadget especially waterproof camera for some photo shoots is a worthy load to have in scuba diving.  Koh Mapring (4) is quieter spot compared to other nearby small islands in the vicinity of Koh Rang. It is considerably a good venue where you have a restful snap in the comfort of the boat ride anchored off near its coast. Adventure trip going around the whole island can be done by kayak or a paddled boat. Line fishing as you like doing it for added excitement and fun can also be done after getting permission from authority because all islands are under marine protection. There are portions of the island which is strictly declared as “no fishing zones”. 


The clear waters encircling the island offer excellent swimming experience for tourists who are off for it.  Underwater scenes can also be viewed from the boat and snorkeling under the hull is also a fun adventure to consider. Creativity in its natural form is what tourists can do to get the most value from things which are of limited state of being.
