With crystal clear water and interminable stretches of fine white sand, Thailand’s Coral Island, or Koh Larn (Koh Lan), is paradise personified. About 4.5 miles (7 km) off the coast of Pattaya, Coral Island is a perfect day trip destination and a mecca for lovers of water sports, scuba diving, and snorkeling.

Popular Coral Island Activities & Things to Do
Coral Island caters to both island adventurers and those looking to relax. Take a glass-bottom boat ride to marvel at colorful fish, sea urchins, parrotfish, and sea sponges in the underwater world; kick things up a notch with a banana boat ride or parasailing experience; or simply sink your toes into the sand, enjoy a buffet lunch of freshly caught seafood, and work on getting the perfect sun tan.

How to Visit With Viator
Whether it’s to energize or exhilarate, Coral Island caters to the needs of every type of traveler. The majority of Coral Island tours depart from Pattaya Beach’s South Pier—the journey takes 15 minutes by speedboat. Tours typically include pickup from Pattaya hotels and a tour guide, as well as plenty of free time to explore Koh Larn’s six main golden beaches, all of which are flanked by seafood restaurants and offer opportunities for beach activities such as parasailing, water-skiing, and scuba diving in the green-blue waters. Opt for a private tour for the full experience.

Insider Tip
Before leaving Pattaya in favor of Coral Island’s blissful serenity, consider taking a city tour that stops by the Pattaya Floating Market, a visual feast of boats swelling with exotic produce, and the Nong Nooch Tropical Garden, one of the city’s most popular attractions.

What Brings People to Coral Island
Travelers to Southeast Asia flock to these beautiful islands to escape the bustling crowds of mainland Thailand, recline on the white-sand beaches, and swim among a coral reef inhabited by diverse marine life. Although most tours are single-day options and beach bungalows on the island are more expensive than accommodations on the mainland, taking a Coral Island tour that includes an overnight stay allows you to take further advantage of the island’s idyllic beaches.

How to Get There

To get from Pattaya to Coral Island, you can only travel by boat. Therefore, you must first arrive in Pattaya city before heading out on a boat ride west to the island. Bangkok is about 90 miles (150 km) northwest of Pattaya Bay, and convenient transfer services are available from Bangkok hotels and the city’s Suvarnabhumi Airport. The journey to Pattaya takes approximately two hours by road.
