Kantiang Bay can be found towards the south of the island on Ko Lanta's west coast. The Bay is a little-known, beach-lovers haven where you can truly relax and soak up the sunshine and beach-life of an island paradise.There's plenty of things to do; live a castaway dream, paddle in the warm, crystal-clear waters of the Andaman Sea, learn to scuba dive, or just make Kantiang Bay your sun-kissed home for a while.

A lovely calm bay

I did not say "excellent" because of all the tour boats coming and going, but when they aren't there - the water is great and the scenery gorgeous.

I just took a walk along the beach at Kantiang Bay and didn't swim as there were rocks and low tide when I went there.

Kantiang Bay is a nice mix of quiet relaxed beach living and access to commercial services like bars and restaurants, massage, pharmacies and gift shops. There are three dive shops that are operate in town, but because it is so far from the crowds you pay a lot more for the basic things like a simple bungalow room or a... More

This beach is wonderful, and I will recommend this place for families or just couples who want to relax. Not much to do, but great sand and water.

The good: - Clear water. good for swimming. But some areas are rocky at low tide. - White sand - Stunning views - Tour boats pickup/drop off here but don't PARK.... More

we stayed in this area for three nights and can't wait to go back! it's beautiful, friendly, and relaxed. best part of Ko Lanta, as far as I'm concerned. Surfer-like little village with plenty of low key eats and drinks. watch out for the motorbikes though! they take no prisoners. Hit the WhyNot bar for beach cocktails and check out... More

this place is magical for me - both in low season and high season. for me, it is one of the most beautiful beach on Koh Lanta. make sure to visit Why Not bar in the evening and have a cocktail with some good old live music. miss these evenings :)

It's a beautiful beach!! It's not packed with resorts, so that is what makes it realy beautiful! The only minus is that there are just a few places with shade where you can ly on the beach! If you drive a bit further up the hill you find nice restaurants with stunning views!!
