As part of a trip to Angthong National Marine Park, you’ll stop by at Ko Wua Talap Island. Beautiful scenery, fantastic viewpoint. When in Samui, you should definitely go there. The beach is small and well maintained.
Koh Wua Ta Lap Koh Wua Ta Lap is one of 42 islands that make up the Ang Thong National Marine Park. The cheapest way to get from Bangkok to Ko Wua Ta Lap costs only ฿1000, and the quickest way takes just 5½ hours.
If you visit Angthong marine park make sure you go to the Ko Wua Talap Viewpoint as well. It is absolutely magical. Have to be fit though, its a real workout! Got some energy left? Visit the cave, its at the end of the beach...More
The beauty of this place is crazy. Such a stunning island, beach and the viewpoint is spectacular. Just be careful going up and down as it is very steep and hard work - they say low to moderate fitness, but I'd say you will struggle...More
Reached the island during lunch time and was advised that the vertical trek was quite long, tiring and could be tight to complete within the stipulated time given (was told that the climb and descent together would account for 1hr 45 mins). But I was...More
It’s for me one of the nicest places on Koh Samui.
We went with a long tail boat just great experience with local peoples.
We had the chance to fishing from the boat we catch our lunch;)
Just a great experience.

The return climb to the HIGH LOOKOUT can be done in an hour without rushing and most tours seem to give 3 hours to this headquarters island - which leaves enough time for FIT PEOPLE to also do the return climb to the LOTUS CAVE and grab a bit of beach time afterwards.
People of normal fitness should maybe only do one and our tour leader suggested to give the LOTUS CAVE a miss - it takes as long and is as tough (it's shorter, equally steep but technically harder) for far less reward. Having done both, I concur.
My first visit in the 90s, I managed to do both in the one afternoon - and both tracks were less developed and tougher. I was a very fit 50s something then. Latest visit I'm a very fit 70s something and found the initial climb to the high lookout was so tough (I did it non-stop without using the rope assists - as a fitness activity) and tiring I was glad I was staying overnight in a tent and had next day to do the cave.
Some speedboat trips may give more than the usual 3 hours on the island - I researched** only SLOW BOATS because I am sick of rough, uncomfortable, often wet and noisy long distance speedboat trips. My slowboat company SAMUI ISLAND TOUR did a good job - btw I think this is the same outfit VIATOR uses for its customers.
** The most economical way for campers and bungalow stayers to get to the island is by way of one of the daytour boats. It's also lotsa fun on account you do all the things the daytrip customers do - but over 2 days.

There is an accommodation on Koh Wua Talab run by national park. There is a cabin there but I don't think there is 2-bedroom cabin. You can go there by travel agency. When you buy boat ticket, you need to tell the agency... More
There is an accommodation on Koh Wua Talab run by national park. There is a cabin there but I don't think there is 2-bedroom cabin. You can go there by travel agency. When you buy boat ticket, you need to tell the agency that you need to stay there one night and the agency will take note to the tour operator to pick you up next day trip. Make sure you don't forget the boat name.
