Bali Hai Pier is the central hub for getting the ferry to Coral Island (Koh Lan). In addition to the regularly scheduled ferries, the Pattaya Pier is a jumping off point for speed boats, fishing charters and Scuba excursions. The port is busy with boats picking up and dropping off passengers throughout the day.
Ferries depart for Coral Island starting at 7:00 am and run on a regular schedule to either Naban Pier or Tawaen Beach. From those destinations you can get to other areas and beaches of Koh Lan. Naban Pier is a dropping off point and you will need to take a motorbike taxi, Songthaew, or rent a motorbike for the day to get to the nice beaches.
The last boat back to Bali Hai Pier is from Naban pier at 6:30pm (18:00). One should be there early so they don’t miss their ride home. The last boat from Tawaen Beach is much earlier at 4:00pm (16:00).
A visit to Koh Lan is quite popular for people on holiday in Pattaya. You’ll find the Pattaya Pier a buzz with activity all day as people are coming and going from the Island. Boats are usually quite full, but are not overcrowded.
