SEAP Southeast Asia Pilot-1
  >   Thailand   >   Koh Lanta to Tarutao


Anchor in 5 metres just west of Koh Panan. This anchorage is suitable in the northeast season only.

Once ashore, look for a lonely historic outpost, once the site of a penal colony for female and male political prisoners, a salt factory and later a busy village. Little trace of either remains, although the young Thai rangers stationed here will be happy to show you around.

A scenic, deep passage exists just to the east between Koh Panan and Koh Belitung Besa. At 32 metres throughout, the current can run at two knots mid tide.
