Introducing Paradise on Earth - The Islands of Koh Year. Wonderful clear sea, white beaches and extensive coral reefs will appeal to you.
Located in the Andaman Sea, Koh Rok is part of the Mu Koh Lanta National Park. There are two islands, twins, which are the most beautiful place on the west coast of Thailand suitable for snorkeling. The islands are 250 km apart and a coral reef stretches between them.
Every day, a number of boats arrive at these islets from Koh Hai, 15 km away and Koh Lanta, less than 30 km away. Companies that offer snorkeling trips to these islands call them Bermuda Ridge or Seafan Garden. You can see fish, turtles, moray eels and smaller sharks in the high season waters. With the increase in mass tourism in Phuket, Krabi or Phi-Phi, the number of visitors to these beautiful islets has also increased. A large part of the coral reef is hidden five meters below the surface and experienced snorkers will enjoy this depth perfectly.
The interior of the island is covered by a jungle that stretches over the rocks up to 200 meters above sea level.
The islands offer you a wealth of opportunities to spend your free time. You can wander through the jungle, island, snorkel or sunbathe. You will not be bored here. By boat you can make a trip to nearby towns.
In addition to these organized excursions, a boat can be rented privately to Koh Hain or Koh Kradan. The ship costs you roughly 4000 Baht. Food and drink are required, as well as 400 baht entry to the National Park. It is also possible to sleep on Koh Year. There is a campsite where you can rent a tent. Negotiate the terms with the boatman in time. Enjoy this wonderful vacation where you want to go.
