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 stayed at the Alama Sea View Resort (see review elsewhere). Kantiang is a sleepy little village, but has everything you need (including the essential 7/11!). It is situated at one end of a pretty little bay, which although having rocks along much of it, if you swim at high tide, these are not a problem. There are plenty of great eateries - one in the village that was excellent was Kantiang Kitchen. We also found some other places at the other end of the bay up on the hill (you really need a scooter or tuktuk, etc to get there), overlooking the bay, with great sunset views (and fantastic, cheap! food). We hired a scooter for a couple of days (we were there for 7 nights), and went across to the Old Town, which was very cute, lovely restaurants out on the water on sticks, as well as to explore the other beaches. This was a bit disappointing as we found it difficult to access many of them, and then found there wasn't any services of any kind on the beach (it was really hot, so we were looking to get out of the sun). We did eventually find one place open, and could sit in the shade and swim there (the beach was beautiful). We also headed down to the National Park, but decided against paying the 200Bhat per person (+another 20 for the bike) to enter.

The village is small, with plenty of restaurants, bars, convenience stores, tourist facilities, accommodation and space on the beach. I loved it here, very safe and friendly.

After tons of research I decided to stay in this area. It is MUCH quieter and a very nice beach. It is close to other beautiful beaches by car or motorbike. A few restaurants are located in this bay that you can sit and watch the sunset at night.

This beach was just a few minutes away from our resort on a moped and we were so glad that it was so close! During our whole holiday this was the quietest beach by far!
Fantastic to relax and watch the sun set plus you felt like it was your own private beach it was so quiet!
