Coral Island or Pattaya
Tourists rarely see Koh Larn (Coral Island) as a resort but rather as a complement to Pattaya’s beaches, or one of its attractions. Most tourists visit Koh Larn in the form of day trips or independent travel on its shores, which are considered much cleaner urban Pattaya. For those guests wishing to stay overnight on the island, Koh Larn has a slew of amazing locations to be chosen from, depending on what beaches and areas you are in. And the exciting thing about staying in Coral Island instead of Pattaya is that you can still visit all other Pattaya Islands from here.
