Ko Lanta Island


If you’re after a beach island holiday and are ready for adventure, then scuba diving the beautiful coral reefs and secluded islands of the Mu Ko Lanta National Marine Park is the perfect choice.

 

The island of Ko Lanta lies in the tropical waters of the Andaman Sea, off the west coast of Southern Thailand. The island is surrounded by more than twenty kilometres of white sandy beaches and the cool mountainous interior is a maze of small dirt tracks through the unspoilt rainforest and rubber plantations. The spectacular sunsets Ko Lanta is famous for can be enjoyed along the entire west coast.

 

Less-crowded, commercialised and more relaxed than popular tourist hubs like Phi Phi, Phuket and Koh Samui, Koh Lanta has an untouched beauty which attracts all-fashion of international travelers. Resorts, activities, restaurants, bars, and shops are in plentiful supply for every budget, though the island still maintains a small-town feel. While tourism is growing quickly, Ko Lanta retains its traditional charm with an awareness that the island’s natural beauty needs to be preserved. The twenty thousand residents out-number the tourists at all times on Ko Lanta – even during mid-season it is possible to walk three kilometers down some beaches and pass only a few other visitors.


 

On land, the wildlife of the Lanta National Park is fascinating to both kids and adults. Explore Ko Lanta’s caves and mangroves, elephant trek, hike or mountain bike through natural rainforest and enjoy stunning panoramic views, wander along kilometres of white sandy beaches, or simply relax in your hammock with a good book.
Off the coast, the marine park encompasses a further fifteen islands which can be explored by traditional longtail boat. The marine life in this area is spectacular and can be enjoyed by divers and snorkelers alike.


Wherever you go on Ko Lanta, you’ll be spoilt with great food, friendly locals and a laid-back casual atmosphere.

The Thais’ hospitality and love of children is legendary and you can be assured that your stay will be enjoyable and memorable.
