An amazing day exploring the caves and the coastline by canoe around the island of Koh Yao Noi island (Thailand). The only way into this secluded bay was by taking advantage of the low tide, allowing us to slip through a low cave whilst lying back in the canoe. Out of the darkness came this incredible little hidden lake (well, maybe lake is a little excessive, bigger than a pond but smaller than a lake..!), you can see the tide marks around the edge. The light was amazing, and the high sided limestone cliffs around us echoed out incredible noises from the birds and monkeys – it was like something out of a film.
