Getting around

A songtaew from Nathon to Coral Cove area will depend on whether you catch a songthaew going clockwise or anti-clockwise around the Ring Road, as the Coral Cove/Lamai area is half way along the route.

Anti-clockwise may be slightly quicker, as there is less traffic on the southern part of the island. Fares should be the same in either direction. 60 baht, taking 35 to 45 minutes.

Coral Cove to Lamai: 30 baht – 15 minutes.

Coral Cove to Chaweng: 30 baht – 15 minutes.
