Koh Larn (Coral Island) is a very wonderful island in Thailand. It is situated in Chonburi Province, not far away from Pattaya and only 2 hours drive from Bangkok.
This island is very small, only approx. 4 km. long and approx. 2 km. wide. There are only 6 beaches, but popular and wonderful with white clean sand and clear crystal water.
