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 was our local beach :) Love this place! And also Koh Lanta as a whole - we Wish we had longer there! We stayed a bit further down Koh Lanta, by why not bar and pad Thai rock and roll, but there's always places to eat, drink and chill, like this lovely beach! The beach had lots of bars... More

I really like Kantiang Bay area, the beach is nice with plenty of services. Towards the southern end is a spot where you can reach the beach easily from roadside, near Same-Same. Big central lot of the beach is taken by the luxury resort, Pimalai, which pilfered the land from the locals for pennies a few decades ago and now... More

Great beach. Especially in low season when we were there, because it was so quiet and beautiful. Great for relaxing. Can see monkeys playing in the middle part of the beach. Nice restaurants and bars by the road on the north part. Clean water and sand.

Very nice, sandy, loooong beach! It is pretty quiet, with only 3-4 bars/restaurants and it was not crowded at all the whole day we were there. Also, the sun sets on this side!

Good base to explore southern Ko Lanta. A range of hotels and restaurants. Boats for hire for fishing and island visits. Beautiful beach in day. Music and fire shows at night.

What is the right time of day?! Low tide (well at least not high tide) or else there's very little beach at all, and morning/late afternoon (avoid the midday sun) as there's very little shade. The south end of the beach is nicest, as it's kept clean by a 5* hotel, but most of the bars/restaurants are the north end.... More

We stayed at the Pimilai, and a section of the beach is private. I usually don't approve of private beaches that local people cant go on, but actually its only their sun beds that are private. Lovely golden sand, warm and clear water. Nobody hassles you on this beach and there is a good bar (Why Not Bar) and a... More
