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. « less

A laid back little village with a great beach located south on lanta. Beautiful island vibe, crafty, fun and clean. Get a scooter and ride down!!

This is a nice beach and not overcrowded like some places. The sand is ok and the water looks clean. There are some rocks that you can't always be seen so care is needed. There is a nice restaurant that has the tables on the sandy beach at night-very good and looks nice.

I'd planned this trip for about two years. Was sidetracked into going to Phuket about four months ago...big mistake. After that, remade my plans for Ko Lanta. I came for the scuba diving, am here now diving with Scubafish Dive, their shop a short walk from where I'm staying at the Baan Laanta resort. Both of those decisions turned out... More

This is probably the best beach on Ko Lanta. Very undeveloped with just a few hotels and bars but almost deserted throughout the day. As the beach is so long, people just locate themselves and you never get the feeling of being one of hundreds sunning themselves. The water is very clean and safe for swimming. It can be rocky...

This is total contrast to any ofthe popular beaches on, for example, Phuket. No wall-to-wall sunbeds, no parasols - no hawkers! Just lots of clean, quiet beach and clear, cool sea water.

It supposed to be the best beach in Thailand, but it just normal. The beach situated really far from Saladan, so you can't get tuk-tuk to it. Taxi will cost too much (from 600 to 1000 batt for two persons). There are too many stones, some boats with excursions and nothing really special.

Great for swimming Lovely to look at with blue clear waters, sandy bottom, and lovely crescent one kilometer beach. Nice for peaceful walks...very few Mosquitos at this time even at night....can see stars nicely as beach doesn't have lots of night light which is great.

Worth stopping for on a motorbike. Get a bike for the day and explore the island. It was a quiet beach with not much I any amenities except enjoying the pure beauty of it and relaxing in the sunshine. Bring water and sunscreen. Nothing else required.

Apparently this has been voted the 3rd best beach in Asia - but it is difficult to see why. The bunched-up buildings at one end are not attractive, while the middle of the beach is taken up by the expensive Pimilai hotel with its signs telling us firmly to keep out. The far end with the Same Same But Different... More
