Hotels in Koh Lanta
Koh Lanta, is part of the Mu Koh Lanta Marine National Park and is actually a series of stunning Thai Islands characterised by white sandy beaches, spectacular scenery, dense forests and coral reefs. The largest Island is Ko Lanta Yai, where most people stay and the boats pull in at the little town of Ban Sala Dan.
An unforgettable highlight on Koh Lanta is undoubtedly the labyrinth of caverns, caves and tunnels at Tham Khao Maikaeo. Created by the monsoon rains carving out the limestone for millions of years, you can reach this natural wonder on a guided jungle trek. With vast chambers and tiny passages, stalactites and stalagmites, there's even an underground pool to bath in if you don't mind the chill!
At the very tip of the Island is Ta Nod Beach and the lighthouse. The beach is wonderfully unspoilt and often quiet, because it's quite hard to reach, but well worth it. Climb up to the lighthouse to gain fantastic views out over the archipelago and the National Park. Sunsets here are unforgettable.
Endlessly sandy, fringed by forest and lapped by shallow warm sea, the best beaches of Koh Lanta are gorgeous. Klong Dao Beach is the most popular with its huge swathes of spotless sand and safe waters for children. Just south of Klong Dao is Pra Ae Beach, a gently curving crescent of luminous sand with tropical forest tumbling to its edge.
In contrast to the large popular icons, Bamboo Bay is very private. Smooth white sand is here in abundance too but at the northern end there are crystal clear rock pools where you can snorkel amongst the marine life.
Communities and culture
On the east coast of Koh Lanta is Ban Ko Lanta or Lanta Old Town. Here you can wander the island's original port and commercial heart, which provided safe harbour for trading vessels from the Arabic States and China. Some of the elegant wooden houses here are more than 100 years old.
There is a rich mix of restaurants, markets and handmade goods on offer in the town, from hand-painted t-shirts to hammocks.
To explore the culture of this fascinating place, try the Chao Leh Museum at Ban Sanghka-U. There is an excellent display of traditional bamboo homes and plenty of exhibits that shed light on local beliefs, creativity and customs.
Naturally it's all about local seafood and Thai traditions, and who would argue with that? Koh Lanta hotels put you on the doorstep of restaurants such as Lanta Seafood, Red Snapper and Beautiful Restaurant, where fresh fish is prepared with delicate expertise and flavoured with wonderful Thai spices.
It's easy to find a table overlooking one of the stunning beaches and some restaurants have piers that extend right into the ocean.
