Top Activities In Koh Larn

Enjoy a day trip to Koh Larn

Only a 30 to 40-minute boat ride from Pattaya, Koh Larn is a quaint island boasting stunning turquoise waters, white sand beaches, and lush landscapes. Often overlooked by many tourists, Koh Larn may be small but offers many activities and is the perfect day trip destination from Pattaya.


How To Get To Koh Larn

Getting to Koh Larn from Pattaya is a simple and enjoyable journey. The most common mode of transportation is ferry, which departs regularly from Pattaya’s Bali Hai Pier from early morning until the last boats at 5 pm. The ferry ride offers a scenic view of the Gulf of Thailand and takes about 30-45 minutes. If you want a faster option, speedboats are available for hire, providing a quicker (but more expensive) way to reach the island in about 15 minutes. Both options drop passengers at either Naban Port or Tawaen Beach, where you can begin your Koh Larn adventure.

Remember to dress appropriately when visiting the temples and respect local customs.

Go Fishing

If fishing is an activity that interests you, Koh Larn is a great spot to try it. It’s not so well known to tourists, but it is very popular activity among the locals. Simply hop on a speed boat ride for 5 minutes to the popular Tako Trip or Squid Fishing Cafe. This fresh seafood floating restaurant offers squid fishing packages that will provide you with the equipment to catch squids, crabs, shrimps, or fish. The best part? You can have sashimi made from your catch on the spot! For more serious enthusiasts, many charter companies in Koh Larn offer day trip packages for deep-sea fishing.
