Koh Larn is a small Island about 7kms off of the coast of Pattaya, the journey by boat takes around 45 minutes, Koh Larn translates
into English as Coral Island, the Island is just over 4.5kms long and just over 2 kms at its widest point, so nothing is very far away, there are 2 other islands close by, these are Koh Khrok, which means mortar and Koh Sak which translates as pestle.

. Beaches on Koh Larn Thonglang Beach
This is a small beach, not as nice and peaceful as Ta Yai, but nowhere near as busy as Tawaen Beach, has a couple of banana boats and jet skis for the more adventurous. Hat Ta Yai
Nice small beach about 10 minutes walk from Na Ban Pier, very clean and quiet, can only be gotten to by motorbike taxi or boat, the road is too narrow for sawng taews, has a small open air Thai restaurant that serves beer and Thai food. Ta Waen Beach
This is one of Koh Larns longest beaches at about 800 meters in length, has many restaurants, souvenir stalls, accommodation, jetskis, banana boats, para sailing, if your into commercialised beaches then this is the one for you,
you can even get your hair beaded and braided here aswell as foot and
physical massages etc.

Tien beach is on the west of Koh Larn, bit of a walk from Na Ban so probably best to use a taxi, the sea is nice and clean as is the beach, also has a few restaurants and other places to spend some time at. Samae Beach
One of Koh Larns most developed and busiest beaches, the water and beach is clean and there are many restaurants here, it also has rental places for jet skis, fishing boats, banana boats and even ATVs and normal motorbikes, probably Koh Larns best beach if there is a group of you that are going to Koh Larn for food and drink.
