Koh Lanta Organised Trips

Koh Lanta Marine Park By Kayak

Koh Lanta’s marine national park is a haven for wildlife, blessed with pristine coral reefs and dotted with tiny limestone karst islands, just made for exploring by kayak. This private full-day visit will take you to some of its most fascinating sights, starting with Koh Phee. Also known as “Ghost Island”, it has been eroded by wind and water over thousands of years into a shape that looks, from the mainland, like a giant human skull. Clambering through its network of caves, you’ll find ancient stalagmites and stalactites, fossils embedded in the walls and the occasional sleeping bat. The second stop is Koh Talabang, where you’ll spend an enthralling few hours kayaking along its shoreline, discovering perfect tiny beaches, steep-sided coves and atmospheric caves, pausing for a rest and a simple lunch on one of those beaches along the way.

• Operates November to May

Koh Rok Islands Cruise

Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of one of the most idyllic corners of Koh Lanta Marine Park. Zipping across the Andaman Sea in a speedboat - a burst of joy in its own right - you’ll arrive in next to no time at the craggy twin islands of Koh Rok Nok and Kho Rok Nai, separated by a narrow channel. The more adventurous may opt to hike through the lush, rugged interior looking out for monitor lizards; others will be happy to spend the day on the beach, marvelling at the powder-soft sand and enjoying the occasional lazy swim in the sparkling turquoise sea. The crystal-clear waters around Koh Rok are a snorkeller’s dream, thanks to an extensive reef system that’s teeming with colourful aquatic life - the keen-eyed may be lucky enough to spot hawksbill turtles, moray eels or even a black-tip shark.

Phi Phi Island Cruise from Koh Lanta

Enjoy a relaxing day discovering the natural delights of Koh Phi Phi, a scenic archipelago of six specks of land in the Andaman Sea roughly halfway between Koh Lanta and Phuket. Travelling by speedboat, you’ll arrive in around half an hour at beautiful Ao Pileh lagoon on the second-largest island, where you’ll have a chance to plunge into its emerald waters for a swim and a snorkel. Once you’ve dried off, the next port of call is the so-called “Viking Cave” which owes its nickname to the images of different types of boats - including one that looks like a Viking longboat - painted on its walls. From here, you’ll make for another highly rated snorkelling spot, passing the main filming location for Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Beach. The day ends on Phi Phi Don, the largest island and the only one that’s inhabited, where you’ll have time to swim, hike to the viewpoint or browse the tiny street stalls.

Thai Cooking Class in Koh Lanta

Sometimes the best souvenirs to bring back from holiday are the ones you can’t see, such as great memories and new-found skills. This relaxed cooking class fits the bill on both counts, thanks in part to its superb beachfront setting. Under the supervision of a professional local chef, with the sound of the waves in the background, you’ll learn the skills and techniques you’ll need to make authentic Thai favourites such as green curry, stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts and several fragrant soups. The reward for your efforts is a laidback lunch overlooking the sea, listening to music and enjoying the dishes that you’ve prepared, plus a fistful of recipes to take away so you can recreate the dishes back at home. It’s a delightful way to spend a morning that will appeal to everyone from couples to groups of friends and families with older children.

• Daily departures
• Operates year round
• Group experience
