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 stayed in Kantiang Bay so this beach was our go to beach. It's a great beach by day with plenty of space and never crowded. It really comes into it's own at night with some great beach bars and restaurants (same same but different and why not bar stood out).

This is lovely, it is pretty quiet with a few nice bars/restaurants including 'Why Not' which a good place to eat and drink. The water is so still so great for kids too. We'll worth a visits as we only paid 300Baht by TukTuk from Long Beach and it took about 30 mins.

Gorgeous, with great sand beach, shaped like a crescent. Offers more dramatic landscape than the main beaches, but still developed enough to have a small group of resorts and beach bars. Great for couples, and got the Why Not beach bar offering entertainment in the evening.

Superb beach, great water for swimming, but bring sunshade and towels if you're not staying at Pimalai Resort. All other resorts / hotels don't have sunbeds on this beach and offer no shade, so take this into consideration when you go there. You get many lunch and dinner options on the beach and you can watch the most amazing sunsets... More

Having been to Lanta 3 times before we decided to stay further south. We picked a wonderful guest house which was 5 star for us, however the area did not live up to our Lanta expectations. Yes it was stunning as much of Thailand is, however we found Kantiang to lack the relaxed communal vibe that other areas on this... More

We were staying at the Houben Hotel, which was on a headland & not on the beach so we were hoping to spend a few days on the beach but unfortunately there are no sunbeds or sunshades that you can rent. Only the Pimalai Resort has their on sunbeds/sunshades. There are some lovely bars & restaurants along the area in... More

We stayed here for a week before going to Long Beach. Kantiang Bay is very quite and very pretty. There are many places to eat and drink but if you are looking for more of a buzz then the Saladan town area is probably the best bet. So many more restaurants, shops, markets etc. We enjoyed both but I think... More

One of the nicest, if not THE NICEST beach on Koh Lanta. For anyone who likes it quite and simple and doesn't mind driving all the way down to the south this is the place to go, even for a day.
