bestmayo has indicated that this thread is about Thailand

Next year (march) ,we like to go to Thailand.
We also want to visit ko lanta and snorkeling there. But is it possible to do this right from the beach or is it always necessary to take a (little) boot to other beaches/ little islands?

The same question about ko phi phi.

You can snorkel from the beach, both from Ko Phi Phi and Ko Lanta, but you won't see an enormous amount. The snorkelling really is much better if you take a boat trip to a smaller island nearby. On Ko Phi Phi, I hired a small boat to Ko Phi Phi Leh, and to 'Bamboo Island', both trips were very good and inexpensive.
