We were here for 5 days and compared to the busy northern beaches, Kantiang Bay provides a lovely, quiet alternative. Clean, with a couple of great beach bar/restaurants which get lively in the evenings.

Far from the crowded Krabi beaches, very few tourists and good for that very reason. But better check your hotel ratings before you plan your trips. Avoid ‘Dream Team Beach Resort’ at any cost. Very rude front desk and very far from any tourist friendly...More

Compared to beaches in the north of Lanta, Kantiang Bay is not too busy. Also seemed to be one of the cleanest beaches on the island. The community keeps it clean. Nice lanterns on the beach at nighttime.

There are several daytrips boats which can take you to other islands from Kantiang Bay. We stopped for a short dive at Ko Ngai, and got off at Ko Muk before the boat continued to Ko Kradan. Just ask at the hotel.

Currency Exchange Booths in Kantiang Bay Koh Lanta? (6 Replies)
I am going to Kantiang Bay in Koh Lanta in Feb 2014. Are there any foreign currency exchange booths in this bay where I can change cash/travellers cheques? I know there are ATM's available in this bay. If not, would you recommend traveling to a different bay on Ko Lanta to use a foreign currency exchange booths. - if so, which bays have these? If not, would you recommend taking cash (thai baht) or using the ATM's? Many thanks

Hi, It's well over 2 years since I lived on the island so I'm no doubt out of date but until someone with more recent experience comes along here's what it was like then. I wasn't aware of any currency exchange booths on the island, there were 3 banks,(see FAQ on right of this page for location but they were all a long way from Kantiang Bay at the north of the island) and one of them, next to Lanta Mart, had a dedicated booth with a teller window outside the bank. I used ATMs and...More

Best transport options fr Krabi airport to hotel inKo Lanta (5 Replies)
We are arriving to Krabi airport around 2 pm and need to get to a hotel at Kantiang Bay in Ko Lanta. I don't think our hotel provides transportation. What is the best way to get to our destination from the airport? Thank you!

You can go to Krabi town by Minibus, stay overnight and take the ferry the next day. Or take a private taxi from the airport directly to Ko Lanta, around 2.000 Baht.
