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.

We were based in kantiang for two weeks and visit this beach without fail everyday, either to walk along the beach, suntan with our beach towels on the sand (no deck chairs available), take a dip in the warm clean waters, or even just to visit the why not bar for a meal and drinks. There are no deck chairs... More

Our accommodation was on this beach so we stayed around this beach and the village behind it on most days. It is a nice beach with white sand and quite clear water. It is not busy and there is a nice beach bar on one side of the beach near the 711 side.

I have only been to beaches that somewhat replicate Kantiang Bay. I have been here many times and stood in the sea to admire this almost pristine stretch of sand and at times counted hardly a dozen people between the Same Same restaurant & The Why Not Bar, that's not counting those on the loungers belonging to Pimalai. I don't... More

A little out of the way down south of the island, but this beach is definitely worth the trip. Because of it's location it is much quieter than further north, so really peaceful. Great for swimming & having lunch @ 'Same Same, But Different', right on the beach

The most beautiful place to see the sunset is Phu Pha restaurant on the hill (seen on the picture). Excellent thai food in Pad Thai Rock 'n' Roll Restaurant. Why Not Bar is a good place to relax after the sunset and listen to live music.

One of the best beaches in Ko Lanta. The southern part of the island is lined up with scenic beaches, but Kantiang Bay stands out. Clean water, clean sand, ideal for swimming. It's got shacks, so good food is never far away.

Great peaceful beach located about 10 mins ride from klong nin beach. Much better beach than long nin in my opinion and is much cleaner and the sea is perfect for swimming. Only criticism is that again it is very tidal and the sea comes in a rate of knots and out likewise so if you fall asleep you may... More

Easy to get to, lovely stretch of beach nice and clean sand. Lovely clean water and a few nice places to eat. However they did have the dreaded sea lice when we were there so very stingy to swim in the sea.
