3:30 Koh Wua Talap Island. Here you can choose to go to see the caves with beautiful limestone formations which is about 50 minutes walk or to the view point, or just relax and enjoy the beach, and see the monkeys. Probably one of the best hikes in the islands of the Gulf of Thailand. Here,there is a path leading up the side of the rocks. This will take maybe 30 minutes to walk up, and well worth it. But be warned, this is not a hike for the faint hearted.
Make sure you have good footwear as there are sharp limestone crags which will be your foothold, especially towards the peak. With a breathtaking view of all the Ang Thong islands, the end result of the hike is well worth it.
