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.

This is paradise. Kantiang offers a great white beach with perfect clear water. Sure there are better beaches little bit further down the road. But here you have restaurant and 7-11 and you can buy beach toys if you want some.

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!

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.
