The stunning Khlong Khong beach is so picturesque with all the rocks, great for swimming the crystal clear water at high tide, and shows off a magical sunset every night. Its a lovely stroll in both directions of the beach to plenty of bars and...More
Compared to other beaches on Koh Lanta I would say this is the worst. Even when tide was lower it was quite narrow, and the sand was coarse and corraly. Quite a few rocks and the ocean was a bit dirtier than just down the...More
Khlong Khong is a great beach. The water is as hot as soup during high tide and little to no wave activity, typical of the coastline. Unfortunately, during low tide you cant swim owing to a dead reef (caused by construction, beach modification and tourism)....More
Found this at the end of the beach in search for cheap happy hour drinks. 79 baht for drinks. When other places were charging 150 baht for ONE prawn, this place offered 10 for 250 baht. Huge fresh fish for only 400 baht (feeds two...More
We stayed nearly a month on Ko Lanta....Not totally typical Thai, as there lives mainly a big Muslim community, but it was peaceful with less tourists than some of the more popular places. Food was good and the island had many interesting areas to visit....More
This beach is for all freedom minds and hippies. We went to a couple of bars and we couldnt decide which is better, because they are all lovely! Live bands, treehouses, hammocks with a beautiful sunset infront of you and the prices are, even right...More
A bit of a harsh title maybe but, like many of the off-season beaches, litter strewn and not much open doesn't make for a great day out. Some of the bars have a crack at cleaning the beach directly out the front but even that...More
Khlong Khong beach - a couple of questions (1 Reply)
I am thinking of staying at Khlong Khong this December and just have a couple of questions: - I have read in a few places that there is a 'canal' running behind the beach and that it may be full or rubbish and attract mosquitoes. Does anyone know - is that true (or was I reading an old guide book?) - if we don't want to hire a moped is it possible to find a tuk tuk or songthaew to travel to Saladan / round the island on? Many thanks for your advice.

There are plenty of tuc tuc's but if you plan on traveling arou Koh Lanta sight seeing ,I would take the number of one of the drivers that uses a van ( you'll find a few at the rank in Saladin).Most tuc tuc's in Koh Lanta are a moped with a side car, fine for a 2/3 kilometre radius but not comfortable for longer distances. We used the same driver for all our journey's last year and he gave us a preferential rate and he used a small van, much safer and more comfortable.
