Stretching from Klong Dao on the northern side and Bamboo Bay on the southern, Koh Lanta is probably amongst the most favored beaches in Thailand. The sheer size of the coastline is what attracts most beach bums to this stunning getaway.
For the adventurists, the popular places for diving are on the coasts of Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, and Ko Haa. Lanta is the pride and joy of Krabi and can be easily reached thanks to its relatively flat and accessible geology. The island is located in the Krabi province.
Highlights: Visit the Ban Saladan Tourist Centre, Khao Mai Kaew Caves, Visit Ko Lanta Noi and the Lanta Old Town, a diverse and culturally rich village.
Location: Ko Lanta Yai is in the Andaman Sea off the west coast of Thailand
Getting there: There are no direct regular ferries from Phuket to Krabi although it is possible to charter a speedboat or similar transportation. Daily ferries operate between Phuket and Krabi via Phi Phi Island
