Koh Rok Nok Island is among the 15 islands forming Koh Lanta archipelago, located off mainland Thailand's east coast. These islands are all part of Mu Ko Lanta National Park (protected marine area). The twin islands Ko Rok are some of Andaman Sea's best snorkeling locations.

The name Ko Rok refers to Ko Rok Nai (closer to the mainland) and Ko Rok Nok, both located approx 30 km (19 ml) south of Ko Lanta and 12-20 km (8-12 ml) west of the islands of Muk, Kradan and Ngai. The twin islands are rugged, roughly the same sized, only 250 m (820 ft) apart, with corals covering the channel in between.

Some snorkeling sites boast names like "Seafan Garden" and "Bermuda Ridge", but it all blends together into an impressive reef system spanning 1+ mi2. Visibility is great and some of the coral retained its color regardless of the bleaching in the past. Pufferfish, angelfish and anemones are among the thriving marine life commonly seen. A sea turtle, sea snake, moray eel or even black-tip shark may also be seen.

While Koh Rok Nok Island is completely untouched, Rok Nai features a restaurant, small ranger's station and an accommodation zone back from the 500m-long Ko Rok Beach.
