    Visiting Lanta Animal Welfare in Koh Lanta is an unforgettable and deeply emotional experience that I highly recommend to everyone. The dedicated staff and volunteers share heartwarming and inspiring stories of rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption, showcasing their profound commitment to animal welfare and community education. Witnessing the transformation of abused and neglected animals into loving, trustful companions is a poignant reminder of resilience and the power of compassion. This sanctuary not only offers a glimpse into the lives of the animals it saves but also calls on visitors to support their mission in any way possible. Whether through donations, adoption, or simply spreading the word, every bit of help contributes to their noble cause, making a visit to Lanta Animal Welfare a truly impactful and emotional journey.

    We travelled by scooter from Saladan there. Just a little traffic in the morning about 10 a.m. At that time Lanta Old Town was quiet, but many restaurants were open already and little shops too. I liked those old brown buildings.This time we didn’t go to the Community museum but people have recommended that. Obs! The museum is closed on Mondays and there are no swimming beaches at Lanta Old Town.

    Long beach is really stunning. When swimming, you do feel a little sting on the skin but you get used to it. There are no sun loungers so be prepared with your towels.

    A must.

    What a beautiful day here. The boat ride was a little rough but worth every minute. The fish were stunning. The islands were full of bird life and the rock formations weren’t camera shy.
    Only thing was I hadn’t learnt to scuba dive so couldn’t experience the Whale Sharks and rays that had apparently been there the day before.

    The National park normally is shut at this time of year but happened to be opened for a little longer… happy to say.
    Quite expensive and maybe in the high season it wouldn’t have been as tough getting there.
    There would probably be a lot more tourist boats too. We had the place to ourselves.

    Price will differ from boat companies. We went privately through our resort the Layana Resort & Spa Ko Lanta . The staff were beautiful and very professional. The trip went to other islands in the day which were just as lovely .
    Round trip 9 am to 4 pm so take some sunscreen and don’t forget you sick tables in case it’s rough.
    Enjoy

    Agree with other reviewer - the island beaches get better and better and one heads south down the coastline. Enjoyed an afternoon here - and a light meal at a restaurant on the beach.

    Nice really lonely island in the jungle - it was an adventure for us to really escape from the tourism but 3 days are enough in the wild loneliness :D

    Snorkelling trip. Speedboat picked us up at the beach at our hotel Long Beach Chalet. First stop Koh Rok and since we arrived first the girls had the beach to themselves while we boys did some snorkelling.

    Very nice beach. The lunch we got served tasted very good. There is a small kiosk on the island as well. Rangers look after the beach and secure tourists behave accordingly.

    Remember to wear sandals/shoes on the floating dock which is VERY hot.

    Amazing beach!
    Great hike in the jungle, but quite rough on one end (depending from where you start) due to no proper stairs, as the clay is very slippery.
    We did not see many animals neither.

    GORGEOUS BEACH but the Monkeys are vicious!!!! BEWARE

    I was watching a few monkeys trying to get into someone’s backpack, there was a group so they managed to shoo them away. Then within seconds the monkeys, 5 or 6 were circling me, I walked back wards as they circled even closer, I then had to swing my bag to deter them and they started to hiss and bear their teeth… It was scary as hell.

    Luckily, some guys on the beach ran to my aid raising arms and shouting at the monkeys and they dispersed and I ran away!

    I am still not sure what I would have done without the help of these kind strangers…

    BEWARE!!

    A must do if you're in to this kind of adventure. Hard to find, not signed well but Google Maps gets you close. Guide is nice but does not speak English. 300 Baht per person, bring cash. Half hour hike uphill through jungle to the entrance then about an hour tour inside the cave system. It's hot and humid even in the cave so bring a generous amount of water. Headlamps provided by guide. Also prepare to get muddy walking through water at times and the exit at the end is basically crawling through a puddle. But it's worth it!!! The incredible bat room at the end is amazing.

    Long beach with clear water that shelves very gently.

    Some excellent restaurants and good happy hours at the bars.

    Too many dogs for my liking, but I don’t bother you.
