“Amazing beach”
Review of Khlong Dao Beach

This is a wonderful beach, both at high and low tide. It's very long and great for walking on, at low tide the depth of the beach is vast and its super soft, but firm flat sand. As other reviewers have mentioned there can be a lot of rubbish washed up on the beach but from my experience this tended to be more towards the north eastern end and it gets pushed right to the back of the beach so you can still easily enjoy the beach. There have been teams of people recently clearing up rubbish on the beach. At the opposite, south west end there is no rubbish at all and the waves are so much calmer at low tide. Lots of bars, restaurants and hotels along the entire beach. I am here in September so lots of places are not open being low season. The beach is also generally quiet with not many people around. Great uninterrupted views from the beach out to sea and some distant islands. Sunsets can also be amazing here. Don't be put off, this beach is amazing!!

Good beach to chill and watch the sunset on, but not anything particularly amazing. Clean shallow water, easy access.

So Good restaurant is on beautiful Klong Dao Beach in Ko Lanta Yai.

We stumbled upon So Good Restaurant during a rainy day in Klong Dao Beach. At the time, we were just looking for somewhere to shelter but as soon as we tried their Thai food and cocktails, we knew we'd be back again during our stay!!!

During our multiple visits we ordered the Tom Kha Gai, spicy chicken salad (it was a little too salty), Thai Yellow Curry with chicken and Tom Yum soup.

We loved everything about the place, ESPECIALLY their cocktails which are advertised for around 200 baht but it was ALWAYS happy hour when we went, (no matter what time u go!!) with a frozen strawberry daquiri for only 90 baht!! To die for!!!

If you fancy a delicious cocktail in a beautiful beach setting, this is the place for you!!

It's such a shame that the beaches are left in such a state over the wet season ... I understand that there are not many visitors so not much income so fewer jobs etc ... BUT I seriously believe that the weather is not a problem to as many people as the tourism operators believe ! It is more the state of disrepair of the place !!! People WILL come , Koh Lanta could easily be an all year destination! Clean it up and see !!!
