WEST KOH LARN (HAAD TIEN)
This pretty anchorage in 5-8 metres on sand is recommended only as a day stopover – a place for swimming or lunch ashore at the restaurants on Haad Tien. There’s a concrete walkway around the rocks both ends of the beach.
Good snorkelling can be found along the outer edge of the reef that fringes the beach. Further south around the small headland is Samae Beach with dozens of bungalow resorts and restaurants ashore.
