Ko Rok Nok, Ko Lanta

4.6
#3 of 6 in Nature in Ko Lanta
Indulge in white sands, lush coastal forests, and extensive underwater environments at Ko Rok Nok, the outer of the Ko Rok island pair. Hit the blue waters to explore the multitude of reefs and coral systems near the shore. Bring snorkeling gear to fully appreciate the teeming colorful fish and other wildlife. Alternatively, simply stretch out on the shore and enjoy the sun, soft sand, or shade of overhanging trees. Consider renting a beach tent for a bit more privacy. Keep an eye out on land for the island's giant-size monitor lizards.

  • Koh Rok is one of the most beautiful of the islands about an hour's speeedboat ride from Koh Lanta. The super soft, white and fine grains of sand adorning the beach is not commonly found in most locat...  more »
  • A visit to the two Ko ROK Islands to the snorkel is worthwhile in any case. Even if many boats there set, can be to the snorkel from the way go. This will be more difficult when it comes ashore.

  • Clean beach, white, fine as flour, sand. But a lot of people. More on this beach, and island, look not at that

  • Beautiful beach with amazing snorkeling right off the soft white sand beach. Visibility is good. Monitor lizards roam the area, which is cool to see. There's a lifeguard, which is unusual. Unfortunately it's packed with people who are pretty clueless as to respecting the coral, and you can see the effects on it. I've never seen so many people taking weird trying to be a model type photos in one place... Try to catch a tour that hits here at a different time from the rest of the tours.
  • Ok trip to this island but it always felt like a major tourist procession. The snorkeling is superb with some of the clearest waters in the area and pretty much the best selection of fish you can imagine.
  • We went there snorkeling for one day and it was a awesome trip. I think, it is the same like every travel agency sells you there. 1. pickup at hotel 2. speedboat to koh rok 3. snorkeling at different places 4. lunch buffet at the beach with free time 5. snorkeling again 6. drop off at hotel. But you should negotiate with the prices. The range was 1700 THB to 1200 THB for Koh Rok 1 Day.
  • Amazing place, well worth a visit. Dont expect to see much live coral.
  • The water is very clear and not too cold. You can swim with your eyes open in the deep of water.

Where to stay in Ko Lanta

Most accommodations available in Ko Lanta sit on the west coast of the island. Close to the shore, you can find mid-range to expensive beach resorts and rental apartments. Expect to find less expensive rooms farther north and south along the coast, away from the main areas of development. The remoter areas also boast a few fine resorts with spas and private strips of coastline.
