Lanta Islands

Just off the mainland at the southern end of Krabi province are the two large islands of Lanta Noi ('Little Lanta') and Lanta Yai ('Big Lanta'). The two big islands are at the center of a group of 52 islands, 15 of which have been designated as the Koh Lanta National Marine Park.

The west coast of Lanta Yai is lined with resorts and bungalows for almost its entire 25 kilometer length. Despite this, the Lanta islands are much less developed than Phuket or the Phi Phi islands, although many say that the scenery is not as spectacular. Still, the beaches are excellent and the prices are often highly competitive with the other destinations.
