Diving in Koh Lanta
Divers, whether just beginning or more experienced, will find their paradise in the waters surrounding Koh Lanta. The island is close to the famous Hin Daeng & Hin Muang pinnacles, where marine life is exceptional.
The Andaman Sea shelters some of the best Flora and Fauna on the planet, and Koh Lanta is right in the middle of it all…. Several years past, the region containing Krabi, Phi-Phi and Phuket was declared a National Marine Park; unfortunately this proclamation is not always respected (though progress has been made). Every dive site has had anchorages installed in order to avoid damaging the ocean floor. Marine Park fees are also charged to all divers, and retrieving coral or other natural elements is strictly forbidden.
The Koh Lanta area offers a variety of dive sites, catering to both beginners and more experienced divers. Depths range from 2m to 60m! Generally speaking, the dive sites are concentrated around the islands of Koh Phi Phi, Koh Bida, and Koh Haa. Even non-divers can take advantage of these waters as there are so many fish to see here, even from the surface!
Between November and April, divers have the chance to dive with large pelagic fish such as majestic Whale Sharks and Manta Rays. Hin Daeng & Hin Muang are the dive sites of choice – your chances of meeting one of these giants of the sea here are very good! (although unfortunately, no guarantees!!)
It is not uncommon, either, to witness dolphins swimming alongside the dive boat! Other types of whales have also been sighted near Koh Lanta.
Travel to Koh Lanta
Just off Thailand’s south western coastal town of Krabi, on the east side of Phang Nga Bay, exists a unique, unspoiled tropical island: Ko Lanta Yai. With clear, cool waters and superb white sand beaches stretching along a 27 kilometer coastline, its paradisiacal appeal remains unmarred by mass tourism. The island, which reaches a height of almost 500 meters at its extreme end, also boasts a mountain range covered with rain forest.
The Koh Lanta archipelago is made up of over fifty small islands, though only three are inhabited: Lanta Yai, Lanta Noi and Ko Ngai. Lanta Yai is the most attractive to tourists, with its impressive beaches and activities for visitors.
The island itself runs from north to south, with the west coast established as the main tourist area, offering accommodations for all budgets, a variety of activities, and a choice of bars and restaurants. Picture-perfect sunsets can be seen from any of the many beaches, while the colorful local fishing boats known as “long tails” bob lazily in the foreground.
The east coast is far less developed, affording the curious explorer a glimpse of life outside of tourism. Facing toward the mainland, the coastline largely consists of mangroves, with yellow sand beaches towards the southern end. It’s here you will find the ancient Sea Gypsy Village, home to the indigenous settlers on Ko Lanta who live in harmony with the sea.
