“Wonderful Beach”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

A great beach for a moring run or to lay out. The water is not as clear as Long Beach but this is still a beautiful beach.

“Practically your own private beach”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

The ones who said it was too crowded must have been visiting another beach entirely to the one we've been on for the past 4 days
. It is a very wide, clean, white sandy beach
. Perfect for families as the sea is calm and warm. Plenty of shops and restaurants along the beach yet it still remains "unspoiled".

No sunbeds or umbrellas for hire so if you need shade mid day you may have to pop back to your accommodation. (Or seek shade in a bar!) lots of the bars have comfy deck chairs to use.
There are lots of crabs, which run away when they see or hear you coming, it's fun to watch them.

It's not at all busy or overcrowded.

“Best beach on Lanta”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Klong Dao is a very wide bay with golden sand and turquoise blue sea. Lots of room to play during the day and so atmospheric at night. All the hotels back onto the beach and have fairy lights illuminating the sand. The beach becomes the main path between hotels and bars at night so we just put on sandals and stroll from bar to bar along the beach. The 'Easy Bar' is a favourite for lunch with good snacks and very cold beer. At night sit in the deck chairs outside 'Mooks Bar' listening to Reggae and watching the stars. Brilliant.

“Very beautiful!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This beach was great but not many places to sit! We eventually found chairs at a place called The Indian where they let us sit all day for free. It wasn't crowded, and the water was very nice too. We also watched the sunset and it was absolutely spectacular.

“Best beach on Koh Lanta”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Of all the beaches on Koh Lanta is Klong Dao beach the best.
No rubbish, not much stones, lots of restaurants, bars, hotels, but still not crowded. The water is at clear days even clear and clean. You can find lots of crabs at the beach and in the water.
But the beach is not good for snorkeling.
