Koh Lan (Coral Island) is located 8 km off Pattaya. It is a very popular destination among tourists who are mostly Thai on weekends. Many come from Bangkok, only 2 hours away to spend the end of the week or holidays. Koh Larn means the Coral Island. It has the sandy beaches and the turquoise sea the nearest from the Thai capital city. It is also a more enjoyable and relaxing place than the bustling Pattaya on the continent and its not that pretty beaches.
Koh Lan is 4 km long and has a small hill on top with a small temple. There are two small villages Ban Ko Lan and Ban Krok Makhan. This is where the restaurants and most hotels and guesthouses are. Most of Koh Lan’s beaches are located on the west coast. The most popular and populated one is undoubtedly Tawaen Beach.
Many Bangkok residents come then to enjoy the most beautiful beaches just 2 hours from the capital city. So advance booking is highly recommended. The highest concentration of hotels and guesthouses is on Tawaen Beach.
