KOH LIANG TAI

31 miles from Koh Lanta Lighthouse

KOH LIANG TAI (A). 7°6.292N, 99°25.953E

Koh Liang Nua and Koh Liang Tai are tall limestone islands similar to those of Phang Nga Bay. The only reasonable anchorages lie on sandy patches on the southeast, northeast (B) and west sides (C) of Koh Liang Tai.

Take special care in anchoring, as the reef edge extends some 250 metres offshore and rises vertically from 6 metres. On the sandy patches it’s best to drop the hook in 8-10 metres, well off the reef edge.

There are a few small backpacker rock-climbing resorts ashore with basic Thai fare restaurants. There‘s also a small Sea Gypsy village where seafood and coconuts can be acquired for money or barter. The small islets of Koh Bulao Bot and Hin Bae Wa are safely accessible from the west. They provide a great snorkelling and fishing day anchorage, but only in calm conditions.
