Entirely without human intervention, these two small islet great diving site on the small depth where the large number of underwater gardens of hard and soft corals. Black tipped reef sharks and sea turtles hawksbill-the usual attractions of these places .

Just off the shore is a square mile of coral reef with fabulous underwater marine life, making this a paradise on earth . Ko Rok Nok and Ko Rok Nai have both remained mostly undisturbed by the outside world, and there is plenty to see.

Koh Lanta Snorkelling

Koh Lanta Snorkelling Snorkeling at Koh Lanta is limited so if you really want to see the underwater life of the Andaman sea buy a snorkeling tour to one of the southern islands. Tours are offered by speedboats, larger boats and long-tailed boats. Speedboat offer the fastest service and is the perfect option to explore more islands for a short time including the most remote. Traditional Thai long-tailed fishing boats provide a more intimate experience though a bit noisy, and large tour boats offer the lowest rates and the most comfortable atmosphere for sea cruise but can often be crowded. Going on all these trips please verify that took protection from the sun.
