Within reach of the twin sea mounts of Hin Daeng and Hin Muang, Thailand’s deepest dive sites, and with easy access to the dive sites of Ko Haa and Ko Phi Phi, Lanta is ideally located to experience the very best this region has to offer.
The southern Andaman Sea is known for its excellent visibility and diversity of marine life, from ornate ghost pipefish and harlequin shrimps to the mantas and whale sharks that are drawn to the area’s deeper dive sites. With shallow coves, deep drop-offs, limestone outcrops, seamounts, and undersea caves to explore, divers will enjoy the excellent variety of diving in the region.
Ko Lanta’s west coast has numerous exceptional beaches and a certain relaxed charm that distinguishes the island from its more famous neighbours, Ko Phi Phi and Phuket.
- Ideal for viewing: hawksbill turtle, ornate ghost pipefish, common cuttlefish
