Lawa Island is a 500 meter-long island in Phang Nga Bay and ca be found just to the northeast of Phuket Island. Located less than 3 kilometers from the northeast tip of Phuket, this tiny shark-tooth-shaped island is not hard to reach from either Phuket or the southern tip of Phang Nga province, which is only 2 km. in distance from.
If you would like to travel to Lawa Island from Patong Beach in Phuket, you will need to drive to the far northeast part of the island. First you would drive east on Highway 4029, then north on the 402, northeast on Highway 4027 and finally take the 4031 to Laem Khat where you can simply take a long tail boat from when the weather is not to agitated, thus causing rough sea.
