5 Gorgeous islands near Koh Lanta, Thailand – Beach escapes of unimaginable wonder

Labeled as 'Koh Lanta' are the isles of Koh Lanta Noi and Koh Lanta Yai found off Krabi's coast from where many exciting adventures can be had across these following 5 tropical islands.


Koh Ngai

One of the more minute islands that you will discover in Krabi Province, Koh Ngai measures a mere 4 km by 2 km yet pulls out all the stops in providing intrepid travellers with a fascinating holiday to partake in. From mountainous forests, coconut plantations to rugged stretches of rock that dot the islet's perimeter, all one will require is a keen sense for adventure. Look to explore the beach before heading inland on a bird-watching expedition and be mindful that many reefs are found in the immediate vicinity of Koh Ngai where countless marine mammals might be caught sight of.


Koh Rock

Forming an integral part of the beautiful Mu Ko Lanta National Park are two islands that make up what is referred to by the name of Koh Rock. Filled with plenty to do and see, day trips are the preferred means of delighting in all that Koh Rock has to offer. For instance, outdoor enthusiasts can pick and choose from diving or snorkelling within the impressive reef where the marvels of the marine world will come into full focus. A trek through dense jungle may be planned out too that will have you surrounded by the sights and sounds of a thriving habitat.


Koh Mook

What does the thought of swimming through a cave from the ocean sound like? Should this stir your senses and take your level of curiosity to a place never been to before, then look up as to what a trip to Koh Mook (Koh Muk) entails. Though not always spoken of alongside some of the more celebrated and visited islands in the region, Koh Mook sure does have its fair share of thrills to embrace. After having navigated your way through the Emerald Cave, a short swim will bring you to an enclosed sandy beach from where the isle's vibe will surely capture your attention. Sweeping views of cliffs covered in greenery will warmly welcome you that in turn, will usher in a feeling of isolation and solace. Get away from the outside world and set off on a splendid jungle trek or simply lie down on the beach and savour the vistas ahead.


Koh Phi Phi

Arguably the most famed and accessed of all the stunning isles that scatter Krabi, the two islands of Koh Phi Phi, namely Phi Phi Leh and Phi Phi Don are where revelry and relaxation find a perfect refuge. The larger of the two islands being Phi Phi Don is where partying, water sporting activities and the ultimate Thai beach holiday might be enjoyed. However, a day trip to Phi Phi Leh will see the holidaymaker in you unwinding amidst the jaw-dropping scenes of the famous Maya Bay which was once used during the filming of the Hollywood hit, 'The Beach.' Found 28.8 km from Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort which is one of the resorts in Krabi that offers good accommodation and leisure opportunities, guests will have more than one reason to smile should they choose to venture out to Koh Phi Phi.


Koh Jum

Seen as a great way to leave all cares behind, a holiday to Koh Jum will fill you with much admiration for the glorious outdoors of Krabi. The diverse population residing here is one of the draws of calling by Koh Jum with people of Chinese ancestry, Thai Muslims and a group called the 'sea gypsies' ever ready to educate foreign nationals on their ways and peculiarities. Allow life to unwind at a pace of its choosing, either by burying yourself in your favourite novel or catching some shut-eye in a hammock whilst lulled to the sounds of the deep blue.
