Koh Lanta Port is situated on the tip of the most southern island of Koh Lanta, laying just off the southwest coast of Thailand. Koh Lanta is comprised of several smaller islands, only connected via the ferry routes operating between them. Ditching its previous tag as a quintessential party destination for backpackers and travellers, Koh Lanta is now regarded as a haven for the European middle class. Offering visitors the chance to dine in fine restaurants and reside in luxurious resorts, the atmosphere is much more serene than many of Thailand’s neighbouring islands and is generally a significantly older crowd than other tourist areas.
The island is one of the largest in the group, stretching for 30 km in length and 6 km in width. It is covered by lush greenery, extravagant restaurants and nine stunning beaches, making it easy to see why it’s considered such an idyllic holiday location. The port is fairly easy to access, though it is sitting 6.5 km away from the nearest major town, meaning the best way to get there is by taxi. There are public minivans operating; they don’t stop at the port itself but can provide a cheap option to get in close proximity.
For transport to and from the island, the ferry routes are the only option available. The crossing to Phuket is the most common, lasting for around two hours and typically running a couple of times a day. It is advised to check for live updates due to the erratic weather conditions; sometimes the crossing times can run less frequently in the rainy seasons.
