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.

  • Sadly the beach is a disaster in low season - there is an unimaginable amount of trash on the beach - old shoes, plastic, everything. It's such a shame as it means you literally can't enjoy the beach....  more »
  • The Khlong DAO beach is located in a beautiful, west-facing Bay. We were in the February/March 2017 there and found a very clean beach. Despite high season and many restaurants, it was never fully on the beach. It is pleasantly lively and you can go eat dinner on the beach. There however, the wonderful sunsets are the most beautiful. We've spent this time like at the "Indians". There we were pleased also almost daily giant soap bubbles during the sunset. In the evening, the Choreograhies of the "Indian" is a real highlight in the dark.

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.
