Koh Libong lays nearest to the mainland of Trang province. There is one bigger village (Ban Maphrao), three smaller villages and some bungalow resorts on the southern west coast near to Ban Lang Khao. The streets are gravel roads and there are some trecking pathways leading to the mountains with its nice limestone cave. The sandy beaches are wide, quite beautiful, but a little dirty from garbage. The water is flat and swiming is only possible at high tide. One attraction of Koh Libong are the seacows living in front of the coast. Another arrives every November/December with thousands of birds of passage from Russia stopping here on their way to the south. Koh Libong is unknown Thailand and no tourist attractions or special activities are offered. Kayaking, trecking or island hopping by longtail boat are the prefered things to do.
By boat frequently from Chao Mai (Hat Yao Pier) on the mainland in 30 minutes or by other boats from the islands around (Koh Mook or Koh Sukorn). During rainy season, boat transfers might be canceled.
The speedboats of Tigerlinetravel.com stop at Chao Mai to load or unload guests (if there are any) on their way from Koh Lanta to Koh Lipe and back.
Five simple but good resorts offer cheap huts from bamboo or wood and bungalows with own restaurants providing good and tasty Thai food. The Andalay Resort is more comfortable and modern but more expensive too.
