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.

Beautiful beach

Soft sand, two little creeks and no crowds. Nice bar (The why not bar) and next door restaurant. The sand is not white as many suggest but light brown.

This beach is probably your best bet on the island of Koh Lanta (which isn't great itself as a matter of fact), but is nothing special. We did spend some relaxing time there. But that was all.

By far the BEST beach on Koh Lanta. Stunning! Definitely recommend, especially during low season. Easy to get a drink and not too many people. A little more happening than other abandoned beaches during low season.

quite secluded down the bottom left of the island. why not bar is there which is always a plus, but unless your staying down here, or want to visit the national park, there is not to much to offer except a small walk and lots of relaxing.

Best beach of Koh Lanta. Here in July. Low season but we had a gorgeous day out here. We tried all west coast and we returned to this one it is so nice here. Water is wild in July so I imagine it is even better in low season.

Wonderful bay with more beach and various bars and hotels all along it. If you go to Pad Thailand Rock continue straight ahead (don't take the road that curves to the left with the 7/11 on it) and you will come in via the back of the resort. Hermit crabs and sand crabs running about and a long strip of... More

we went for an afternoon swim during low season. The water was warm but there are a few rocks so use reef shoes if you have them. The beach was nice. Not too crowded. We enjoyed watching the locals play volleyball.

The beach is great this time of year there are waves that are good for body boarding and the water clean and clear. The beach is long and uncrowded. It has a bar and a few restaurants and hotels along the beach.

Loved Kantiang, the staff at our hotel said it was a must see. We went there on scooters and had a great time. White sandy beaches, turquoise sea at bath temperature. Good bars/restaurants. It had more local colour than other beaches, i joined in with a game of volleyball with the locals and they had a local band practicing for... More
