Khlong Dao Beach, Ko Lanta
(4.1/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
As the island's most developed beach, Khlong Dao Beach is most tourists' first stop after reaching Ko Lanta. This stretch of white sand boasts clear water and plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas for rent. When you get hungry or thirsty, head to one of the refreshment stands along the sand. Some bars offer bungalows where you can stretch out in the shade with a drink in your hand. Although very busy, the beach's length keeps the scene uncrowded and relaxed.

  • The beach is very flat and super suitable for great beach walks, as well as for children. Unfortunately, also this beach like everyone else on Lanta is contaminated in the rain, as well as transitional rain/dry with garbage. This is due to the large problem of waste on the island itself, as well as the ocean currents during this time, which also washes rubbish of the neighbouring islands.

  • Having visited most of the beaches on Lanta we thought this was one of the cleanest and best. Lovely sunset too. 
  • It is North West of the island of ko Lanta and is in line with the local beaches. Waters not too clear (but no dirty water, indeed) and lots of sand where you can stay well away from it all. here and the dive spots "on the beach" offer entertainment.
