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 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

Kantiang was a highlight for swimming and being in the water. We enjoyed this beach the most out of all of the west facing beaches on Koh Lanta

Great Bay that never seemed to have more than 15 people on the beach at any time during the week stayed there. For me it was the perfect mix of isolation but not too much with a couple of mellow restaurants and bars on the beach as well as a few more along the main drag. Can't get much better... More

We scootered all over the island, up and down both sides. This is the best beach we found. I recommend going in time for sunset as it is something extraordinary from this beach. I can't wait to return in the future - I just hope it remains so unspoilt!

Gorgeous beach, very unspoilt but with a few facilities. Lovely for an early morning walk, and looking at the rock pools. A few restaurants make this laid back beach a great place to be! Boats leave from here for snorkelling and diving too - some of the best locations in the world. Would love to visit again one day...

This is a very nice beach to take a photo of whilst at an advantageous position in the hills. It's also a great spot for a dip in the ocean or just a relax on the beach.
