Owner description: 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.

It feels a bit exclusive here so we didn't visit often, though highlights were Mr Ple playing live music at Why Not bar, and Drunken Sailor cafe!

Thank Simon H

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 and little shelter so remember the sunblock and a hat would be useful. The sea had a few rocks quite near the shore (depending on the tide) but is otherwise sandy and easy to stand on. The waves are gentle and not difficult to swim in.

For the dip in the sea and the serenity of the beach, I highly recommend the kantiang beach.

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 know the exact length of that distance but it is a fair stretch.
Maybe it is the best in Thailand if not it is certainly one of them.

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
