The Koh Lanta Island is located off the Andaman coast of Thailand, south of Krabi and Phuket. The island is famous for its long beaches and its natural beauty, both above and under the water. Koh Lanta is a scuba diving paradise, with coral reefs, limestone outcrops, pinnacles, caves and also many dive centers if you want to take diving courses or certification.
It has remained a quiet place, unlike other places along the coast, such as Phuket and Koh Phi Phi.The island can be accessed either by car-ferry from the mainland or by boat from Krabi, Phuket or Koh Phi Phi. The variety of accommodations on the island is one of its best features. It ranges from five-star hotels and resorts to family hotels or budget and beach bungalows. Most of the resorts and hotels are located on the two most northerly beaches, Klong Dao and Long Beach.
The best time to go to Koh Lanta is from November to April, when there is very little rain and temperatures average 32C.
