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

The most beautiful place to see the sunset is Phu Pha restaurant on the hill (seen on the picture). Excellent thai food in Pad Thai Rock 'n' Roll Restaurant. Why Not Bar is a good place to relax after the sunset and listen to live music.

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.

If you are looking for a lovely, pretty clean beach, without sunbeds and tons of people, but with a few monkeys, wild dogs, a handful beach restaurants, great sunsets, a fun bar, this is the place. Also a good base to explore the south of Koh Lanta on a motorbike easily rented for 200 baht a day. Spent 6 days... More
