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.

  • Pristine seas but not a lot of fish. The snorkelling was excellent but there was a current that made it quite difficult but still enjoyable. Went with Opal and had lunch on the island, It may have bee...  more »
  • Speedboats go every day after one or two release of snorkling and hotels to take tourists around leave them 2 hours (the time for lunch and to take a bath) on this pretty beach... but the police watch and delineates a zone of very small bathing, it is forbidden to move away from the edge.

  • We had a tour around the island. The national park was not our favourite place. The monkeys were very aggressive and we could not relax.  more »

  • 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.
  • Island is wonderfull. But so ovecrouded. There is always like 1000 people...
  • 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.
