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.

We stayed in Khlong Nin area but travelled to Kantiang Bay for dinners and drinks. The beach is nice, although rocky so I wouldnt highly recommend it for swimming compared to Khlong Nin. There is a fantastic bar on the beach, "Why Not Bar" that I highly recommend. Our friends stayed in the bungalows on the cliff attached to Shroom... More

Another stunning bay nestled into the Island of Koh Lanta. This beach seemed to cater for the well heeled. Certainly felt like an older crowd to us. Our driver told us that the Pimalia resort located here is the most exclusive on the Island.

Found this by chance, unlike loads of beaches, where you hurt your feet getting to the sea , even when the tide is out , it's still sandy , the water is really clear. There is a restaurant over looking the bay , the food is fantastic

It´s one of the last beaches on Ko lanta and one of the most quiet places with the why not bar you have a place to be if you want something to drink be there and you will have fun

I traveled down to this beach by motorbike with some friends one day and had a really good time. It was a lot less crowded than some of the other beaches on the island and the water was great for swimming, not too many rocks and things. There was a line of trees across the beach opposite to the water... More

I had my expectations way too high. This is a fantastic beach but I had something else in mind based on research. It is not croweded and it is a rather large beach. Night life and Pad Thai Rock & Roll are reallly good.

We call this Jimmy's Bay because when we were there we met a middle age male, who is from Seattle, his name was Jimmy of course. We had a nice little chit chat about Bagpacking in Thailand. I will remember him because I brought up the SuperBowl 49 Patriots versus Seahawks. He was a really laid back guy.

Nice beach but not my favorite on Koh Lanta, not enough eating options and little shade. The Pimalai Resort seems to have taken up alot of potential shade areas. It is a convenient base to see the south of the island though.

We stayed at a hotel on this beach and really liked it. Quiet, peaceful, uncrowned. Definitely agree with a previous review that the further south of the island the nicer the beaches get. It is a little more expensive than some of the other places to eat and drink but I would rather pay a few baht more to be... More

Best beach to lounge and work on your tan! Absolutely loved the sound of the waves and birds chirping in the morning.
