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.

This has to be my favourite beach on Koh Lanta. Fine, silky white sand, not too much debris, and it was very pleasant to take a dip in the sea. We went during the monsoon season, and the waves were quite strong. We chose a part of the beach where there were people trying to surf and swim, so there'd... More

It is probably the nicest beach on Koh Lanta. Not many rocks and fairly clean and sufficiently long.

It is an average beach for my experience, but I rated Kantiang Bay and whole Koh Lanta is very good, for the accommodation and peaceful surrounding. There are a lot of comfortable and money worthy accommodations in Koh Lanta. In Kantiang Bay, Phra Nang Lanta Hotel is recommended with beach front room, friendly staffs and beautiful hotel surounding/landscape. Definitely not... More

Spent the day here. Really nice beach. Quiet and relaxing! Had lunch in why not bar overlooking the beach and dinner in sunset viewpoint bar. It was a bit of a walk up a hill but thoroughly worth it for the perfect sunset. Overall a really lovely day.

Very long and beautiful beach. If you are looking towards land, the left half backs on to the main little village of Kantiang. The middle is fronted by Pimalai resort and spa. And on the right hand side you have Same Same But Different Restaurant and Beach bar. The sand is lovely and soft. And most of the beach in... More

This beach is safe, not rocky, with soft sand and clear water. There are some beachside restaurants to grab refreshments when you're feeling thirsty, but it is not so crowded that you feel cramped. One of our favourite spots in all of Thailand!

I stayed in kantiang area because of kantiang beach bay. Was there during light mansoon with plenty of big waves hitting it shores. A great wide beach during low tide, very safe beach to swim without any rocks or dead corals. It is quiet beach with plenty of spots for privacy. The best thing during sunset you could start photo...

A nice spot to enjoy the view and catch a drink at one of the shacks. This is much quieter than the other beaches but more scenic.
