Koh Lan (Coral Island), Pattaya

3.8
#1 of 7 in Nature in Chonburi Province
Turquoise sea meets blue skies at Koh Lan (Coral Island). Bathe in the clear waters, lounge on the clean white beaches, and admire the green mountains covered in dense vegetation. Or, try your hand at a whole host of water sports, from parasailing to jetskiing. Afterward, take time to sample the catch of the day at one of many cafes and restaurants. Be sure to bring a strong sun block, as the rays can be intense. Using our world travel planner, Pattaya attractions like Koh Lan (Coral Island) can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • This place has several beautiful beaches . It’s worth visiting if you are in pattaya . Advice to travelers : go directly to the pier and you ca buy the boat ticket for 30 baht .  more »
  • The sea is just a location, clear, blue, transparent. The sand is white, clean, but the people very much. The smell of food all over the place. People like "herrings in a barrel" filled. All side by side with each other. Besides the sea nothing like:)

  • Far reaching (tuk tuk with Jomtien, then walk 15 min. to the pier, all on heat)-but well worth it.

  • Lovely island. Top tips. 1. Buy ticket on ferry 30 baht 2, hire motorbike for 300 baht (fixed price don’t pay more and you won’t get it for less) 3, take ID or you won’t get a bike 4, ride up to Buddha for amazing views 5, be daring and have a paraglide at 2,000 baht 6, take your time on the roads 7, drink lots 8, find a bar over looking the sea not a road 9, don’t miss your ferry back 10, lots of Russians on the busy beaches 11, stunning place apart from a bit of litter that needs sorting. 12, not many bins on the island so take your rubbish home (don’t add to the problem) Enjoy.
  • A really dirty place, there has to be a time these folks realize there is no fun in swimming with trash. The day people leave this island won't be a trash bin, the locals have to start reinvesting the cash they are making. A big NO And yes, the island once was a paradise before we came here
  • Mesmerising island.. beauty all over..clear water.. 1 suggestion who visited pattaya & take a day trip to this island I would recommend them to stay night there & come next day to pattaya...
  • Koh Lan, popularly called Coral Island is very near Pattaya and is indeed a Great Place to spend the day. There are Slow Boats available every half hour or so from the Bali Hi Pier in Pattaya to the Tawaen Beach Pier in Koh Lan. If however you take the other Slow Boat to Na Ban Pier in Koh Lan, you can always take a shared ride to Tawaen Beach Pier for just 20 Bath per person. Na Ban is also a lovely Beach in Koh Lan Island and is more secluded, but much smaller. The water at both beaches is very clear & there are demarcated areas where it is safe to swim. Adequate Restaurants and Food Stall are also available for you to eat at and there are paid Washrooms and Changing rooms as well. There are now a few small Hotels where you can even stay the night if you so desire. Speed Boats are also available from Pattaya to Koh Lan and back as well. Plenty of Water Sports activities are also available at Koh Lan. Indeed a Must Visit place whenever you go to Pattaya for a Holiday.
  • Good beach with several sports options. Limited food options are there. Overall very attractive.

Where to stay in Pattaya

Stay near Walking Street for lodgings closest to Pattaya's famous nightlife. Head up the coast to find quieter and bigger rooms in budget hotels or the more expensive resort-style complexes. You can also look in Soi Buakhao, where backpacker hostels and economical hotels offer easy access to main attractions, activities, and facilities.
