So you are on vacation in Koh Samui and looking for unusual things to do? While Koh Samui undoubtedly offers plenty of adventure experiences inland, there is one place you should try to visit for a half-day trip. Only 10 minutes away by boat lies Koh Madsum – an exotic getaway they call “The Pig Island.”
Koh Madsum tour has all the excitement packed in just 3-4 hours. Starting with a picturesque beach of unusual shape to a vibrant reef all along the shore that promises excellent snorkeling in clear and calm waters. If you are a family with kids or a beginner swimmer, you will enjoy it a lot. But guess what, your Pig Island adventure is only about to start.
Soon enough, you will notice dozens of wild boars walking around freely and ready to pose with you. Add to it a stunning landscape of Koh Samui as a background – you are for some Instagram-worthy treat! The coconut palm trees, lazy hammocks, and watersports, all in a company of friendly piglets will somewhat remind of Exuma in the Bahamas!
How about taking the road less traveled during your Koh Madsum tour? Jump on a kayak, and you can navigate along the coastline, passing the mangrove forests and lush island interior with occasional creeks. Enjoy the sounds of wilderness with rare birds in the jungle and watch out for colorful lizards. You can even kayak to a neighboring Koh Taen, which promises more eco-adventures.
Koh Madsum “Pig Island” tour is a perfect getaway for the whole family. Home to the best coral reefs and snorkeling near Koh Samui and its incredible wild pigs, a trip to this tiny island gem will not disappoint you.
