Type: Beaches, Outdoors
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.

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...

looks nice, but is a point of departure for boats. I wouldn't like to swim there, there are people going and coming for day trips, lot of speed boats and long tail boats, plus it is a bay, so I had impression that the sea was not as clean as at the other parts of the island

Just a two minute walk away from the Houben hotel, this beach is pretty good. Why Not bar is just by the beach which has good drinks and food with thai and few western options. Overall, a good place to hang out for the people in Houben.

We have just returned from staying in Kantiang Bay and can thoroughly recommend this area in Koh Lanta. The beach was stunning and we really felt we had chose the best part of Koh Lanta to stay in. There was some lovely restaurants and bars in the bay. The Why not bar was a good choice. Our favourite was the... More

This is probably my favorite spot in koh lanta island, even if the andaman sea took my spectacles here (was too excited to play in the water despite the big waves). You'll find this spot towards the southern end of the island, right before you go up the national park. take note that the beach isnt as well kept as... More

Almost a deserted feeling. If you like to sit in peace on a beach as the waves simply roll in, GO HERE!

Several great casual restaurants, inexpensive massage parlors and a lovely beach. More for those seeking calm than party but one of the bars on the beach does have live music each night.
