This is worth a visit when conditions are allow. Koh Lan, or Koh Larn, has numerous coral reefs and a nearby shipwreck in fairly shallow water, ideal for all level of divers. In the bay at the southern most point of the island is a breakwater and a small concrete platform, about 50m (150 ft) from this platform are large concrete rings under the water. These rings are covered in soft corals and fans, many reef fish have made the rings their home. The reef getting a little deeper as it rounds the south west headland, it will continue north until reaching the next bay. You will find a few very large coral bommies along this stretch of coast line. Although you might not be able to get any deep water here you will be pleasantly surprised at the varied amount of marine life in the shallow waters.
