Getting around on Koh Larn, motorbikes taxis, motorbike rentals.
Getting around on Koh Larn is as easy as getting here. There are always motor bike taxis nearby to take you anywhere on the island you may want to go. There are also motor bike rentals in the main village, and you can even bring your own motor bike on the ferry with you.

Motorbike Taxi on Koh Karn

Motor bike taxis at the pier waiting to take visitors to the beaches. I call this the gauntlet, try not to be intimidated, they are here for your service. I know most of these guys, and they all live on the island. Some of these guys are third and fourth generation residents here on the island, so they know the island very well. The fares these guys charge are as reasonable as it gets. They all carry a tourist map with the fares marked on it, they won't bargain here with the fares they all charge the same. The fares are for each person, some folks believe that if they fit two passengers on one bike they get a discount, not so, you pay for each person. Otherwise some would try to fit five or so on one bike to get the discount. I my self have had four persons and a dog on my bike, anything is possible here.
Baht Bus or Song Tao

Baht buses are located near the Wat that is about a 100 meters from the main pier in the village. As you walk away from the ferry boat you will come to a T crossing when you get there turn left and follow the small street until you get to where they park the baht busses. When you get there just ask for the baht bus going to the beach you want. They usually wait for their baht bus to  fill before leaving which often doesn’t take very long.

Koh Larn Motorbike Rentals
Motor bike rentals, if you are the adventurous type, this is the way to fly. You come and go as you please. These are all late model bikes and all are well maintained. Do a pre-inspection with the owner and you can take a few snapshots if you like before departing on your journey. I have rented motorbike on Koh Larn many times and have never had any problem at all. There are many road signs on the island should keep you from getting too lost. Be careful while riding around it can be easy to be taken in by the scenery and get into an accident, it is best to stop and look around. Cost of renting one of these for the entire day is around 200baht in the main village and if you are renting one from Tawaen beach the cost is 300baht, both include petrol. I have no idea why they charge an extra 100baht from Twaen beach.

Bring your bike on the boat

The cost of bringing your own motorbike along with you on the ferry is 200 Baht each way, this includes loading and unloading of your motorbike. If you’re just coming to Koh Larn for a day trip, then renting a motorbike for the day is your best option.   

Warning!

As there is an ever increasing number of tourist visiting Koh Larn there is also an ever increasing number of tourist riding around the island, on motorbike, many of them with little experience riding motorbike. With the increase of people riding around the island there is a proportionately increase in the number of accidents,

please be careful!
