Koh Rok and the several other islands that form the Mu Ko Lanta are part of the Mu Koh Lanta National Park which was established in 1990 in Thailand. The park occupies the southern portion of the province of Krabi. Koh Rok is located approximately 30 kilometres to the south of the Koh Lanta Island. It is a tiny island with bare minimum facilities for tourists. Its less-commercialized quality thus draws nature lovers in a considerable number. Its proximity to Koh Lanta and Krabi makes it a great place for a quick getaway.
With absolutely no scope for pubbing, shopping and entertainment, the island attracts less of the crowd that wants to party hard. For snorkelling, Koh Rok is often compared with Koh Phi Phi which is extremely crowded during the tourist season. Thus, Koh Rock is one of the few places in Asia where one can find some amount of solitude. It is best to visit this island over a day trip as there is not much to explore.
