At the northern end of the bay is the popular “Why Not Bar” which has live music and fire dancing shows in the evenings and the Baan Lanta resort and spa which has a good restaurant with nightly fresh seafood BBQ. Your captain can organize elephant treks or diving trips with the local dive centre and choose from the various destinations below.

The Emerald Cave (Tham Morakot): Buoyed entrance at the base of the cliff to this stunning cave where you can either swim or go by canoe or dinghy through the
80 meter passage to the Emerald cave. Cut your engine as you enter the dark cave, home to a bat colony. The passage leads to a large and towering Hong, “room”, open to the sky. No overnight stay or cave access from April to October.

Koh Ha Yai: Koh Ha islands are about 11 miles southwest of Koh Lanta, roughly between Koh Rok and Koh Phi Phi. They don’t offer any protection for an overnight stop in either season but make a perfect lunch stop. There is good coral all around the islands and a small beach ashore.
Koh Ngai: The southern side of the island is a good overnight stop. There is an excellent reef with good snorkeling and lots of lionfish and there are several isolated coral outcrops less than a metre below surface. The two small islands to the east offer excellent snorkeling.
Koh Muk: Here you will find the most impressive Hong (cave) in Thailand. After a 100 m trip by dinghy inside a narrow cave you will arrive at an internal lagoon complete with a white sandy beach. Magic!
Koh Kradan East: The best snorkeling around Koh Kradan can be found at the southeastern end of the island.
Koh Kradan South: There is a good reef with numerous lion fish but this is not a good overnight stop in either season unless conditions are very calm. There is a footpath to Paradise lost bungalows which is about a 150 metre walk.

DAY 4: KOH ROK

Morning cruise to Koh Rok Nok. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the island, the white sand beaches, the fisherman shrine and pristine reefs of this national marine park.
