The famous white sand beaches, 28° warm aquamarine seas of Phang Nga bay, the Phi Phi islands and Phuket’s paradise islands are a lot closer than you think.

Fine, white sandy beaches and breathtaking rock formations rising from the vivid turquoise waters that surround the islands will instantly confirm you’ve arrived in paradise. Experience 1 night on the island and visit famous Maya Bay early in the morning before all tourist will arrive. In the afternoon you can move towards Koh Lanta.
At Koh Lanta itself you can dine in an excellent restaurant. 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.
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.
Koh Rok Nai: Excellent snorkeling along the reefs on the south side of Koh Rok Nai and the east side of Koh Rok Nok. There is a small tent resort on the south beach of Koh Rok Nai.
Ko Adang, further south is one of the uninhabited islands of the Butang Group, part of the Tarutao National Marine Park. Enjoy swimming, exceptional snorkeling, hiking on the mountain trails and you can even take a refreshing shower at a freshwater stream in the heart of the jungle.
Datai Bay to Koh Lipe: This is where you will cross the “border” from Thailand to Malaysia. Koh Lipe, also in the Butang group, is known for its pristine waters, fantastic snorkeling, white sandy beaches and the welcoming Sea Gypsies village. Spend your evening at one of the small beach bars or restaurants on the western side, the home of the Chao Leh (Sea Gypsies). Maybe an afternoon cocktail at one of the small beach bars? Vis is famous for its Vugava and Plavac wines made from the local grapes, which we highly recommend you sample. Koh Lipe also features a lovely waterfall.
The local dive shop on the north side of the island operates year round and offers dive trips for qualified and first time divers.
