Koh Rok Islands

Islands near Koh Lanta

The two Rok Islands – Koh Rok Nai and Koh Rok Nok – are tiny paradises 30 km south of Koh Lanta. Small, rugged and mostly unspoilt, they are home to an impressive coral reef system, pristine white-sand beaches, a small ranger’s station, a restaurant and very little else. While there is some accommodation available so that you can stay on the island, this is mostly in the form of tents and a few bungalows.

As part of the Mu Loh Lanta Marine National Park, the Koh Rok Islands have a thriving underwater ecosystem, where divers and snorkelers can encounter sea turtles, moray eels and black-tip reef sharks. On land, on Rok Nai, the beautiful Koh Rok Waterfall is well worth seeing.

There is no public boat service to the Koh Rok Islands, but there are tour companies operating speedboat or long-tail boat day trips there from around 3,500 baht from Koh Kradan, Koh Muk, Koh Ngai or Koh Lanta. You will also need to pay a 400 baht entry fee on arrival at Koh Rok. Tours are not available from 1 May to 1 November as the islands are closed during this time.
