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.

We travelled here by taxi and it was well worth a visit. Warm clear waters and long sandy beach with no stones. We practically had the beach to ourselves. There are rocks at either end but the middle section was perfect. No shade on this beach so don't go if you want shade. There are places for food and drinks.

Kantaing Bay is a nice, quiet bay to lay in the sun and watch the day go by. The southern half of the bay has good swimming and Same Same but different is there for some shade and an ice cold drink.

We travelled around all of koh lanta and found that this was the best beach as it was smaller and not so many people there....the fat sand as i call it was close to the water....the senery and water was lovely.....no shade after 12 in summer....bring a big sheet and you can make your own shade with the drift wood....lovely

We spent 5 weeks traveling Thailand and this was my favorite beach by far. The right hand side has a bar called “why not” which is one of those weird hippie bars, so if you’re into high priced food and drinks just for the hippie vibe then I recommend hanging out on the right hand side of the beach. But if you’re not weird, the left hand side of the beach is where it’s at for you. Beautiful views, amazing snorkeling, and just awesome. Highly recommend. If you’re going to Thailand, make an effort to come here. You won’t regret it.
