Pattaya Coral Islands Review

"Pattaya Coral Island Tour - Koh Larn is not the most Coralline"

Pattaya islands are well-liked and trendy touristy destinations for all the local excursions of scuba diving and group snorkeling tours.

Having said that, choosing the best islands in Pattaya to visit requires some expert insider research and a very careful review of the facts.

Before you book your half or full day snorkel trip, it is worth noting that there are two distinct and clearly different groups of pinnacles.

The coral islands are appropriately named the 'Near' and 'Far' island archipelagos situated in the Gulf of Thailand west of Pattaya Beach.

If you are researching the best coral island near Pattaya for a snorkeling excursion and basing your review on water clarity, aquatic marine life diversity, and lack of hindrances - such as jet skis and speed boats - then the definitive answer has to be the Pattaya Far Islands of Ko Rin, Koh Manwichai, and Ko Phai.

All of the Pattaya islands are situated towards the north of the Bay of Bangkok. It should be noted that the Thai Gulf is clearly not the same body of water as found on the western coast of Thailand. Phuket and the Phi Phi islands are excellent diving destinations and home to the best snorkeling spots in Thailand.

The coral islands in the Andaman Sea and the Indian Ocean are not the same as the Gulf of Thailand!

Best Coral Islands in Pattaya

Pattaya Coral Island - Koh LarnKo Larn is the largest in the chain of Pattaya Nearby Islands.

It is nicknamed 'Coral Island' and undisputedly the most popular, but predominantly because it has the best tourist facilities and amenities, including a few holiday beach resorts.

Curiously dubbed 'Coral Island' by the locals, the surrounding shallow reefs of the near pinnacles do not specifically thrive with an abundance of coralline formations.

Near Islands in Pattaya

Koh Larn Coral Island
Pattaya Koh Larn is the largest island near Pattaya for snorkeling and beachside water sports. It remains the most popular activity for holidaymakers heading out from Pattaya beach and day trippers from Bangkok.

Pattaya Koh Sak
Koh Sak and Koh Krok are two sun-blessed islands visible from the hotels and seaside beaches of Pattaya. Crowds of holidaymakers swarm into the large sandy bay on the northern curved periphery of this horse-shoe shaped island.

Ko Krok Thailand
The tiny island of Pattaya Ko Krok is not the most visited by tourists heading out from the mainland. Take a speed boat west of Chonburi for about 6 km and you will stumble across Ko Krok Coral Island.

Monkey Island Thailand
Monkey Island near Pattaya is a hidden gem where you can feed and swim with native Samae monkeys at Ko Ling white sandy beaches. Monkeys Island is situated south of Na Jomtien nestled between Bang Saray Port and the large popular island of Koh Khram Yai.

Koh Khram Yai Thailand
The large uninhabited island near Pattaya of Koh Khram is situated offshore from the southern coastline of Pattaya and only accessible by boat charter. It is opposite Sai Kaew Navy beach and there is no accommodation on the island whatsoever.

Far Islands in Pattaya

Koh Rin Island Pattaya
The remote island of Koh Rin is the farthest destination for snorkeling tours and diving trips for most of the daily excursions from Pattaya Beach. Ko Rin has beautiful, calm sandy inlets which make a picture-perfect tropical anchorage for snorkelers and bathers in which to bask.

Ko Phai Thailand
Pattaya Mu Koh Phai Bamboo Island is the largest of a tiny cluster of uninhabited white sand pinnacles situated 13 nautical miles (23km) west of Chonburi Province in the Bay of Bangkok (Gulf of Siam).

Pattaya Islands Review

The location of the Pattaya islands affects the cleanliness of the underwater world, which also contributes to the marine life that the sea can support. The average linear distance you can see through the water at the nearby coral islands is typically around 5 to 10 meters.

Most of the snorkeling trips that we offer are very shallow, maybe two or three meters from sea level to the seabed. This means that unless you choose a bad weather day, you will be amazed to see the coral reefs and the tropical fishes swimming around while you relax at the surface looking down into the water.

Signup and join the Pattaya Coral Island Tour on a modern, spacious, purpose-built boat including full amenities and safety facilities, clean modern snorkel equipment, lunch and drinks, and a taxi ride back to your hotel all for an amazingly low price. Snorkeling trips around all the best Pattaya coral islands are superb value for money.

If we are unable to compete with the best snorkeling spots in the world for marine diversity, we can certainly offer you a relaxing and affordable day in the sunny weather cruising around the best Pattaya Island Thailand has to offer.
