The almost oval-shaped Koh Lon Island is a single island located within easy boating distance from Phuket Island. This island is about 1.5 kilometers wide by 4 kilometers long, and is only about 2 kilometers off Phuket’s East coast, near Rawai Beach. It is also close to the Phuket Aquarium, lying only 3 kilometers west-southwest. The nearest large island is Ko He Island, just 3.7 kilometers directly south of Koh Lon.
To reach this island from Patong Beach, take Highway 4233 south and east to Nai Harn, and follow signs for Rawai Beach. From there, long tail boats can be rented to take you to this small island in just a few minutes.
