Kantiang Bay can be found towards the south of the island on Ko Lanta's west coast. The Bay is a little-known, beach-lover's 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.

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...More

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.

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.

There are several daytrips boats which can take you to other islands from Kantiang Bay. We stopped for a short dive at Ko Ngai, and got off at Ko Muk before the boat continued to Ko Kradan. Just ask at the hotel.
