A pristine paradise 7.5 kilometres away from the main shore, Koh Lan is one of the must-visit islands while in Pattaya. Home to famous beaches such as Hat Thong Long, Hat Ta Waen, and Hat Laem Thian, Koh Lan or Coral Island is a serene destination for both beach-bums and nature geeks.
As you arrive at Coral Island, there are lots of activities you can indulge in – parasailing, speed boat riding, jet ski, snorkeling, and banana boat riding. The island also offers perfect opportunities for relaxation – there are plenty of sun loungers you can use while sunbathing and just spending a relaxing day out in the sun. If you want to maximise the experience, they also have masseuses that are readily available. Go full on with the island life experience by getting a henna tattoo or having locals braid your hair. A number of restaurants ranging from high end to street side offer fresh seafood dishes every day. Hotels are also springing up in this place – so accommodation is not a problem.
