“Best beach on the Island!” 5 of 5 bubbles

Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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.

“Best beach on the Island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

One of the smaller beaches in the south of the island.
Very white sand and almost deserted even in peak season. Very good Restaurant "Same Same but different" on the far end of the beach. The best place to spend the day in Lanta!

“Sensational Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Whilst we stopped here along the speedboat ride to Koh Rok, unfortunately didn't come back until our last day...... What an exclamation mark on a lovely stay on Koh Lanta! This beach is superb. Clear water sandy beach. The best we saw. And it's not THAT quiet either..... 3-4 good sized beach bars - we tried Same Same but Different which was actually one of the better fitted venues with well trained staff and good food.

“Maybe not so crowded by tourists, but the the many boats definitely disturb the beach view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

We have been there and we noticed that the beach is clean and the water is clear. In fact, this beach is not invaded by many tourists. Nonetheless, this beach also serves as bay for boats and yachts, the presence of the these disturbs the possibility to swim and sea view in my opinion.
