Cascading down rocks which have a distinct purplish shade and set amidst jungle landscapes, the Na Muang Waterfalls in Koh Samui offer a perfect escape for those looking to explore this enchanting island. Before visiting the falls ensure you find suitable accommodation at a resort or hotel in Samui that lets you experience the very best the island has to offer. Tucked away along Chaweng Beach, Anantara Lawana Resort & Spa Koh Samui is one such Koh Samui resort that features rejuvenating wellness treatments too.
Situated around 12 kms from Nathon Bay, the picturesque Na Muang Waterfalls not only provide scenic photo opportunities, but also spots in which to swim and cool off. The first of the falls known as Na Muang 1 will be the first one that you reach on your hike, while half an hour more by foot will bring you to Na Muang 2. These sites are also known as the ‘Purple Waterfalls’ due to the fact that the rock faces are shaded in a purplish hue. When visiting the falls make sure to also pay a visit to the nearby Na Muang Safari Park where you and your family can enjoy such activities as taking elephant rides.
