About Koh Lanta

Koh Lanta consists of a cluster of islands. The one where tourists can stay is Koh Lanta Yai, which is the biggest island in the group some 6 km wide and 30 km long. Koh Lanta Yai has 9 sandy beaches, forests, mangroves and coral reefs. This is a beautiful destination which is less busy than nearby Koh Phi Phi, and is more focused on families and older travellers than Koh Phi Phi which attracts a lot of younger visitors.

As well as great beaches, there are some places of interest to visit in Koh Lanta. The island’s main town, simply known as Koh Lanta Old Town, has a culturally diverse group of residents including people of Chinese heritage and people from the sea gypsy community. There is also a sea gypsy village which is an interesting place to visit. This ancient group of once nomadic fishermen now live in houses on stilts on the coast line and still use traditional wooden boats to earn their living fishing, an income they now supplement with tourism.

The other major point of interest on the island is the Khao Mai Kaew Caves which are in the centre of the island. These caves have stalactites and stalagmites and an underground lake.
