Things to do

Lanta Animal Welfare

Lanta Animal Wellfare was founded by Junie Kovac in 2005. Her mission was to end the suffering of hundreds of homeless, abused and injured animals on Koh Lanta. It is a fantastic place to castrate, vaccinate, heal and learn.

Boat trips and snorkeling

There are several different snorkeling tours to choose from, most tours include: lunch buffet, fruit and drinks, snorkeling equipment, life jacket and transfer. If you are a small group, you can also rent a private longtail boat or go on a kayak trip to the mango swamp.


Ko Lanta’s location makes it a perfect place for diving, there is something for everyone.
For those of you who are beginners, or if you have not dived for a long time, there are well-protected reefs while those with greater experience / experienced divers find the world-famous Ko Haa, Hin Daeng and Hin Muang. Ko Rok and Ko Phi Phi are also easy to reach with day trips from Ko Lanta.

We recommend Lanta Diver who has extensive experience of diving on Lanta. Their office is located in Saladan.


The T-off Driving Range is located along Klong Dao Beach, close to Lan Ley Seafood Restaurant.

On the way to Krabi you will find Pakasai Country Club. The course has very tricky fairways and fast greens and provides a challenge for all golfers.

Muay Thai / thaiboxning
Muay Thai is probably the number one Thai national sport! Listen for the car with speakers that announce current matches.

Learn to cook Thai food
Try cooking Thai food with friends or family. There are both day and evening courses. Two schools that have been on the island for a long time are Lanta thai cookery school and Time for Lime.

Lanta Old Town
Lanta Old Town is located on the island’s east coast and you can get here by taxi or by renting a moped.
Stroll among the beautiful wooden houses, visit the village museum, look at the Chinese temple or take a turn past the local market.
