The waterfalls on Koh Samui may not be the tallest you’ll find in Thailand, but they are all certainly blessed with a personal and distinctive charm. Each is worth a visit during your stay, providing an instantly refreshing break from the lively and built up areas of the island.
Na Muang 1 is one of the more popular waterfalls on the island for its ease of access and picturesque swimming area. You’ll find the well signed turning off the 4169 Ring Road between Nathon and Hua Thanon in the southwest of the island. Natural rock formations form a steep and scenic stairway down to the base of the fall. Elephant trails run nearby, and seeing the elephants amble over waters downstream with trekkers on their backs ads to the other-worldly feel. The heavily populated pool at the base of the fall must be approached with caution as the waterfall’s foam hides sharp edged rocks underneath.
Na Muang 2 is Koh Samui’s most beautiful waterfall, with stunning rock formations and verdant surroundings bathed in a brilliant natural light. An enjoyable ten minute walk brings you to the fall and is part of the fun. You can pick up something to eat and some souvenirs at Na Muang 1 to break up the trip. Follow the concrete road to the left, south of Na Muang 1 on the Ring Road until it becomes a walking track. Remember to bring a camera!
Accommodation is off the main road and in nearby towns such as Lamai and Hua Thanon.
