Koh Lanta

Located south of Phuket and Krabi on the Andaman coast, the island group of Koh Lanta is a paradise for beach lovers and divers. Most of the main attractions can be found on Koh Lanta Yai, a 25km-long island containing outstanding natural beauty and secluded havens to be discovered, as well the sublime luxury of world-class beach resorts.

Scuba divers will love exploring the sea caves, pinnacles, seamounts and coral reefs in the crystalline waters of Koh Lanta, whilst those looking for a more luxuriating experience can enjoy the numerous stunning beaches on the island.

With enough development to provide convenient amenities and activities and ample unspoilt space to enjoy blissful solitude even during peak tourist season, Koh Lanta makes a perfect beach holiday in Thailand for couples, families, backpackers and divers.
