Visited Koh Muk a couple of years ago. Kayaked down to the Emerald cave from Charlie Beach and was fortunate enough to have the place completely to ourselves because no tourists die to C19 entry restrictions.

If the authorities want to restore the natural environment, I suggest they do something to remove all the trash that's washed up. 



Looks great, but doesn't show the trash at the waterline.
