Ko Lan Island
Ko Lan, or Coral Island, is a small island situated 7.5 km west of Pattaya. Ko Lan beach offers white sands and clear water. Ko Lan is accessible by speedboat and ferry.
Off Pattaya there are two small island groups, the "Near Islands" (Ko Sak, Ko Krok) located close to the northern shores of Pattaya, very near Ko Lan, and the "Far Islands".
The Far Islands are Ko Rin, Ko Man Wichai, Ko Hua Chang, and Ko Badan, located offshore directly west of Pattaya. Far Islands, are the prime scuba diving destinations in and around Pattaya.
Famous Koh Samet lies about 100 km away from Pattaya. Most travellers tend to stay for a few days of relaxation and later return to Pattaya City. There are also day trips available to book.
