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.

Gorgeous, with great sand beach, shaped like a crescent. Offers more dramatic landscape than the main beaches, but still developed enough to have a small group of resorts and beach bars. Great for couples, and got the Why Not beach bar offering entertainment in the...More

Superb beach, great water for swimming, but bring sunshade and towels if you're not staying at Pimalai Resort. All other resorts / hotels don't have sunbeds on this beach and offer no shade, so take this into consideration when you go there. You get many...More

Having been to Lanta 3 times before we decided to stay further south. We picked a wonderful guest house which was 5 star for us, however the area did not live up to our Lanta expectations. Yes it was stunning as much of Thailand is,...More

One of the nicest, if not THE NICEST beach on Koh Lanta. For anyone who likes it quite and simple and doesn't mind driving all the way down to the south this is the place to go, even for a day.

A gorgeous view, great sandy beach with limited things like rock, shells, or coral! The water is so clear it's unbelievable, and a backdrop of mountains makes it even more gorgeous. Our issue was when we were in the water we kept feeling these stings...More

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.
