Beaches on Koh Lanta
The beaches in Koh Lanta are all located on the west coast of Koh Lanta Yai, which is the largest of the islands that make up Koh Lanta. The beaches stretch nearly all the way along the west coast of the island, which is 30 km long. The beaches tend to get less crowded and less developed as you travel south along the west coast of Koh Lanta, away from the main town of Ban Saladan where the long distance ferry and speed boat pier is located. There is a coastal road running the length of the west coast which means that if you rent your own vehicle it’s easy to travel to any of the beaches for a day trip.
Different beaches will suit different tastes and needs better than others, and which beach is the ‘best one’ rather depends on who you are and what you you are looking for:
- Klong Dao Beach: Only 2.2 km from Saladan Pier, this is perhaps the most developed beach on Koh Lanta. Great for family holidays.
- Klong Khong Beach: 9.2 km from Saladan Pier, this beach has a reputation as the island’s ‘hippie’ beach as it attracts a lot of longer stay visitors and has a few bars that stay open late and have a relaxed atmosphere.
- Kantiang Bay: 19.6 km from Saladan Pier, this 1 km stretch of white sand is near a small town and has several good resorts, including the luxury Pimalai Resort & Spa.
