  • There were not more than 30 people on the entire beach when we visited. The beach is a lovely place to relax. It’s calm and clean with no rocks or shells. There are far fewer choices for restaurants o...  more »

  • Beautiful small beach in the South of the island. However no shade so plan ahead! There's also qq monkeys lying around and who do not hesitate to come very close to you. Close your bags and especially no food with you and everything will be fine! The beach is great for sunbathing, the waves are also cool. However it is unclear if this is the season that wants it, but the back of the beach to the edge of the forest is full of trash...

  • We came in July 2017 - So much garbage washed up on the beach. Really sad.
  • This beach is great for those who like to have a relaxed and quiet stay. There are not too many people (it's not crowded) on the beach so you can have some privacy which is great.
  • Nice beach but a bit rocky.
  • White sand and clear water. The best thing is that it is almost empty there all day. Way better than Klong Dao or any other beach on Ko Lanta
  • The best bay on the island with only one bar amd few resorts

Where to stay in Ko Lanta

Most accommodations available in Ko Lanta sit on the west coast of the island. Close to the shore, you can find mid-range to expensive beach resorts and rental apartments. Expect to find less expensive rooms farther north and south along the coast, away from the main areas of development. The remoter areas also boast a few fine resorts with spas and private strips of coastline.
