Ko Libong is still one of the pearls in the Andaman Sea. This large island offers travelers a taste of traditional island life. This multi-day sea kayaking vacation destination offers a chance for responsible tourists to experience both wonderful natural encounters as well as an opportunity to interact with the locals.
Ko Libong offers stunning limestone karst cliffs and headlands. The island is still covered in jungle. There are many trails of varying degrees of difficulty for those who would like to either go birding or simply go for a stroll in a tropical jungle.
The islands could be circumnavigated in one day, but we prefer to take our time and see it slowly. A channel cuts right through the middle of the island, making the island even easier to see.
Sea kayaking in Trang
This multi-day sea kayaking expedition is an ever-shifting panorama of beaches, headlands and tropical jungle.
This trip is for experienced paddlers during the low season (mid April through October). It's perfectly calm during the high season (November through mid April). It involves more paddling than most of our other trips. It's a great trip for experienced paddlers!
Dugongs (Sea Cows) of the order Sirenia
There are Dugong or sea cows on the southern side of Ko Libong. These are similar to the Manatees of tropical America. More closely a relative of the elephant than any other sea mammal, Dugongs are slow-moving herbivores that feed on the sea grass. Their weight ranges from about 230 Kg. to over 400 Kg.
The locals are doing their best to keep the sea grass beds fertile. They don't set their nets in the area. The largest herd in all of Southeast Asia is right here on Ko Libong. Researchers have identified 122 individuals.
They are not too difficult to see either. They come into shallow water (1 - 5 meters) when the tide comes in. They retreat to deeper water when not feeding.
You can stay in either upscale bungalows built for more upscale tourists or you can experience what Ko Libong is all about by staying in the bungalows by the fishing village. You can enjoy the laid-back quality of island life and the friendliness of the locals. The restaurants at these bungalows are excellent. Click here to read more about the bungalow of Ko Libong.
