Mu Koh Lanta National Park, Ko Lanta

3.7
#2 of 6 in Nature in Ko Lanta
At the southern tip of Ko Lanta Yai, Mu Koh Lanta National Park boasts a gorgeous beach and mountainous terrain popular with hikers, sunbathers, and divers. You'll enter at the top of a steep hill, which you can descend by car or along the nature trail instead. At the bottom, you'll see a conspicuous old lighthouse on a hill jutting into the sea. Hike up to the lighthouse or simply relax on the white-sand beach, where the clear, calm water is perfect for swimming. Be careful not to leave your bags unattended on the sand, however, because the unscrupulous resident monkeys will eagerly search them for food. Before you visit Ko Lanta, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • A very lovely part of the world. There is an entry fee of 200 baht, which is well worth it. There are beautiful views of the sea and lighthouse. You are able to swim on the beaches here. There are many monkeys in the area and it is very advisable to adhere to the rules and not feed them!
  • Lovely quiet place. National park with a walking trail and two beaches. Last entry by 6 pm and need to leave out by 7 pm. The walk to light house is highly recommended.
  • For a cheap entry you can enjoy the small but unbelievable beautiful beach. No ships around, just small jumping fishs from time to time. The food was not as awesome as the surrounding.
  • The most exquisite beach with turquoise water. Swings hanging from the palm trees on the beach. A beautiful 2km nature trail through the jungle. Beautifully manicured lawns / gardens. Lots of monkeys jumping from the trees into the water and swimming. A joy to watch, but they are very aggressive. Hang on to your bags, clothes, water bottles!
  • Good view from Light house, nice Beach. Beware of monkeys, but do not be scared. They are trying their luck. Bastards. Nature trail is just bad joke, concrete in rainforest. Rather go to tiger cave And waterfall. IT is more authentic experience. Not worth 200 baths. Believe me.

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.
