14 miles from Koh Lanta Lighthouse
Look for anchorage off the small southeast-facing bay with a small resort ashore. The bay remains deep until close in, and vessels can pick up a mooring or anchor in no less than 10 metres. At the south end of the beach is a small National Park Head Quarters with exceptional snorkelling offshore. There are several small resorts ashore and a trail leading through to the west and east coasts.
This makes a nice day anchorage although, depending on the prevailing season, better overnight holding can be found on the east or west coasts. The Anantara Si Kao Beach Club and a small bungalow resort welcome visitors. Anchorage is available in no less than 12 metres anywhere along the east coast, taking care to approach the visible fringing reef very slowly and preferably perpendicular to the beach.
