Day trippers flock to this small island, 7km offshore of central Pattaya, for sun and sand. On weekends, Bangkok’s visiting party people bake off hangovers in beach chairs, and the aquamarine sea is sliced and diced by jet-skis, banana boats and other marine merriment. There are about five beaches on the island, easily accessible by motorcycle, but don’t expect to find complete seclusion. Boats leave Pattaya’s Bali Hai pier (30B, five daily departures) at the southern end of Walking St. The last boat back from Ko Lan is at 6pm.
