By far this is a special place on Ko Lanta, one of my favorite beaches for swimming. "Why Not Bar" is right here on the beach/bay, and apparently is fun at night.

Nice beach, they clean it up and there aren't many stones or hard sharp shells or dead coral so you can have a nice stroll on the beach without hurting your feet

Kantiang Bay is clearly where all the backpackers staying at cheaper locations gravitate to on their scooters, so the traffic on the approach to the beach is practically ceaseless, even into the early hours of the morning. It may be less crowded than the rest...More
