Koh Lanta consists of 52 islands of which 15 are under control of the Koh Lanta National Marine Park. The two major islands are Lanta Yai and Lanta Noi.

Koh Lanta Yai offers nine beautiful, white sand beaches running on the west coast side of the island, providing excellent sunsets and great swimming. Koh Lanta is quite mountainous and covered in dense jungle with a large variety of wildlife, making it ideal for trekking. The sea surrounding Koh Lanta and its islands is dotted with coral reefs, providing lots of opportunities for diving or snorkeling.

This is reflected in the numerous articles and news about Koh Lanta on the Internet:
