“Great for a Drink, Not a Swim”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Klong Klong has a great selections of very chilled out bars that are great for laying back are staring out into the ocean while listening to some great music.
The beach itself is extremely rocky and in no way ideal for swimming or sunbathing.

“backpacker paradise in an elaborate outfit”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

khlong khong beach is the most lively beach on koh lanta with a lot of realy extraordinary beachbars and restaurants. the mayority of the tourists are younger people and it gets noisy at night. for people who are searching for tranquillity, khlong khong beach is not the right place, but it is a must to come one time in the afternoon to enjoy the relaxed and chilled atmosphere before sunset. for photographs the sunset time is very interessting, because the are a lot of motifs that serve as foreground.
swimming is not so comfortabele at khlong khong beach, because there are a lot of shell benches between the sandy parts of the beach and during low tide it is nearly impossible, but without question khlong khong was one of our highlights during our stay on koh lanta. the mixture of lazy living and flower power gives khlong khong beach this special atmosphere, which invits for a longer stop on this extraordinary beach on koh lanta.
because a lot of young people and low budget tourists stay and overnight on khlong khong beach, the resorts in the backland are mostly not so expensive
we can recomment khlong khong beach veray much for a longer stop in the afternoon and we enjoyed the time on the beach and in the beachbars there very much, but for overnight we decided an other beach.
for people who are searching for beachnightlife and party with long nights khlong khong beach is perfect. this is the party beach number one on koh lanta.

“relaxing but too many rocks to swim”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

The beach and the bars are great, really relaxing. The only bad point is that it was hard to find a good spot to swim. There were rocks in many places. The main road behind the beach has fantastic food. didn't plan on staying as long but found it hard to leave.
