Ko Rok is a breathtaking snorkeling sport with clear, deep waters boasting thirty meter visibility. The combination of soft, while powdery sand beaches and cool, crystal waters are simply stunning. Just off the shore is a square mile of coral reef with fabulous underwater marine life, making this a paradise on earth . The twin islands of Ko Rok Nok and Ko Rok Nai have both remained mostly undisturbed by the outside world, and there is plenty to see. Watch the fresh spring water waterfall drop sharply down a two hundred meter cliff directly into the blue sea below. Walk through a forest of one-thousand-year old banyan trees. Hide quietly, and watch the large monitor lizard pass by. Sit back and observe a troop of million-shell crabs crawling on the sand. This is unlike anywhere you have ever been before.
Ko Mook and Ko Waen
The two islands south of Ko Lanta are also suitable for snorkeling. Ko Mook and Ko Waen are tiny limestone-cliff islands, with occasional strong tides. Around the cliffs, however, is a reef with plenty of both soft and hard corals, large schools of fish, and other sea life.
