  • Fantastic beach! Shallow waters framed by almost three kms of golden sand. Lots of nice restaurants. For snorkeling, take a tuk tuk to Relax bay!  more »
  • We took advantage of this beach for a massage under a grass hut. A dream to the sound of the sound of the waves, the crowd in mons! Great beach but not amazing. Own however.

  • Tall, neat and stunning Beach, space for the very end of the year in the low season. The beach, a lot of good restaurants, as well as small shops and massage places. The short distance to the Saladaniin, is conveniently located for eg. If you are looking for.

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.
