Owner description: 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.

Wow, what a nice beach! The sand is so fine and the waves are perfect for play in the water! There's one restaurant / bar at the beach and it's a little bit pricey. It's better to go to the one on the hill with a fabulous view and much better prices for lunch.

We found the swimming, strolling, beach combing, and exploring here delightful. My five year old swam heartily and also explored the rocks. We enjoyed the Same Same But Different Bar at the far end---great smoothies and atmosphere. The Mojitos at Why Not were perfect at sunset.

Loved Kantiang Bay, beautiful warm water and not too many people around. There are a few rocks so be careful when walking in the water. We hung out down the south end of the beach where there were less boats coming in and out. My favourite beach in Koh Lanta!

As this is the most well known spot - many tourists come here and the locals have exploited a little more than other beaches. Regardless, was still beautiful but not as peaceful as it once was.

Spent 4 days here during high season. Was a lovely mix between quiet and enough atmosphere. People all very nice. Rented a bike and explored for 2 days but didn't find anywhere as nice as this beach

The beach is totally beautiful, the view is outstanding, the bay itself is super nice. There is a great atmosphere about Kantiang Bay and the restaurants and shops are run by lovely locals. Worth a visit or more.

My husband and I spent a lovely relaxing week at Kantiang Bay, Koh Lanta, in December and we were so pleased the Arista Spa was recommended to us (by one of the local dive instructors - they all go there apparently to sort out their knots and aching muscles!) Cha and her team are in a different league; their Thai... More

Like most beaches on Lanta, it's a bit rocky under the surface, but still provides for great swimming during medium - high tide. The best part is the privacy of this beach - most of it is connected to boutique resorts (I highly recommend Phra nang lanta) which all have their own pools and lounge chairs slightly removed from the...
