Crew is helpful and friendly and trip highly recommendable. Perfect trip to do if everyone doesn't snorkel as boat goes to Koh Rok first to drop off non-snorklers for beach time, while rest of group goes snorkeling. Koh Rok is a lovely little island with...More

About an hour boat ride from Ko Lanta on a speedboat. Very bumpy boat ride. Once you arrive it's a small white sand beach, no sleeping, only day trips available. Park Rangers look after the island. There is one store that offers drinks and chips....More

The island is a typical tropical island.., but be aware that you are not on your own. At lunch time it is overcrowded. Snorkeling around the island is wonderful.

We did the snorkeling tour. It was very well organised, the guide had a very good English and was funny. In addition they pick you up in the beach in front of the hotel and leave you back there, so there is no ride in...More

As almost anything else in Thailand it's great. I would definitely recommend a day at Rok Nok. But don't just snorkeling, make it a dive and take your time to check out the monitor lizards habitats the island.

Pristine seas but not a lot of fish. The snorkelling was excellent but there was a current that made it quite difficult but still enjoyable. Went with Opal and had lunch on the island, It may have been on Koh Rok, can't remember. A delightful...More

We had a tour around the island. The national park was not our favourite place. The monkeys were very aggressive and we could not relax.

We booked with pirate but ended up with a competitor of them. I guess they had not enough guests. Everything was fine. We just didn't appreciate that they told us the pick up will be at 8:30-8:40 and they came at 8:00. We were not...More

It depends if you want more coral or more fish. Koh Rok is known for their coral but Phi Phi has more sealife.

Hey all, Im heading to Ko Lanta in April and whilst there I really want to arrange a snorkling trip to Ko Rok Nok. Can anyone with knowledge of Lanta recommend a decent company there that can arrange a visit by speed boat? And how much is the likely cost? Thanks!

Water pollution (4 Replies)
We are hoping to do a sailing trip from Phuket next January to visit such places as Similan Islands, Ko Surin, Ko Rok Nok, Langkawai, Ko Butang, Penang and others. I have read articles about black water pollution and other water pollution around Phuket. Does anyone know if this problem extends to these other places ? Thanks very much !

Anywhere in Thailand where there are resorts and development, due to lack of infrastructure, regulation and monitoring, there are likely to be instances of black water. Just how much is something you'll need to research. Certainly the local press has been carrying articles about this for years. One has to bear in mind to the the normal response by the authorities tends to be ignore or deny and hope the problem goes away. In the end I think that so long as you take basic precautions it is...More
