Ko Lon

This island lies 1.5km from Chalong Pier and about the same from Panwa Bali. It is not developed at all, other than two resorts, one is Cruiser Island Resort and the other, Baan Mai. There are no shops or roads and would be good as an escape from the modern world if you feel the need. The island can be reached by either speedboat or longtail. The longtail boat (large one) cost us 500 baht for the return trip.

It is largely natural forest other than on the flat beach front areas which have coconut palms. The forest has been cleared in sections for the planting of rubber trees. There is not a very wide shoreline and snorkelling would not be an activity for Ko Lon as the water is quite murky.

I would not recommend the island for a day trip, but perhaps you could visit as part of an island hopping tour.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A place to get away to if you want peace and quiet

    looks like a perfect place to relax, but I trust Mrs Globerover will not like it, as they do not have a shopping center there, unfortunately :-)
