Kantiang Bay lies towards the southern tip of Ko Lanta and provides the last little hub of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes before entering the more sparsely populated, deep south of the island. There are just three beaches further south before you are in the protected National Marine Park.
As you enter the bay, you are greeted by a kilometre of white sand beach and crystal clear waters, set against a backdrop of tropical rainforest reaching up into the hillside. With just a handful of resorts that range from simple family-run bungalows to the five-star luxury of the Pimalai Resort, you can live the castaway island dream in whatever manner you choose.
Kantiang Bay is the best place to base yourself if you want to dive some of the top dive sites in Thailand. With spectacular reefs, unmatched marine diversity and great visibility, Kantiang Bay offers the convenience of shorter journey times so you get more chance to enjoy the relaxed and laid back atmosphere of island life.
Phra Nang Lanta Resort is proud to announce their new restaurant is now open. Situated on the beautiful beach in Kantiang Bay, the restaurant hasa stunning garden from which you can step straight down onto the sand on one of the top-rated beaches in Thailand. This is a perfect place to relax and take in the scenery.
From the entrance, pretty little pathways lead to the inviting outdoor pool and newly opened restaurant. With tables surrounded by tropical plants, and beautiful lights enhancing the trees, this is a tranquil yet atmospheric place to dine in style.
The menu consists of a variety of international food with a well selected array of authentically cooked thai cuisine. During low tide the restaurant often provide a barbeque on the beach which is a great way to enjoy local produce including freshly caught seafood.

Ba Kan Tiang Beach in Ko Lanta, Thailand was voted Top Beach in Thailand & No. 9 in the World in the Travel section of the The Sunday Times on October 11th, 2009.
Voted #9: Ba Kan Tiang, Thailand
As tourism marches on, the Thai idyll is getting harder to find.
Step forward Kan Tiang, the last gasp on the Ko Lanta coast road as it dwindles away into Mu Ko Lanta National Park. There’s just one resort, Pimalai, a good dive shop that offers daily snorkelling jaunts and a collection of beach-shack bars, not so much built as washed up like flotsam on the tide. Our favourite for food is Same Same but Different, but the Aqua Bar’sseafood barbie is great, too.
Trailfinders (0845 050 5871, trailfinders.com) has a week at Pimalai Resort for £899pp, B&B, a saving of £400pp. The best of the beachside guesthouses is Baan Laanta (00 66-75 665091, baanlaanta.com), which has doubles from £66, B&B. Scubafish Diving – PADI 5 Star IDC Centre (0066 75 665 095, scuba-fish.com).

We are pleased to announce that the Kantiang Bay 2009 International Cleanup Day ‘Splash for Trash‘ was a huge success.
Collecting rubbish is fun!
Almost 2 tonnes of rubbish were collected – which surprised an amazed everyone as the beach was looking pretty clean before we started. We expanded the cleanup area to include the central area of the village around 7-Eleven, as this did look in need of a little tidying.
After sending a letter to the local residents in Thai Language to invite them to participate in the Ko Lanta Cleanup activities, distributing leaflets and putting up posters, a 90% turnout was achieved with representatives of almost all the local businesses and services participating in the cleanup activities.
Kids cleanup too!
Volunteers included Scubafish dive staff and customers as well as some of the guests staying at the local resorts. Local kids joined in and learned what rubbish needs to be cleaned up and what is natural and can stay on the beach. Everyone thought it was a great thing to do and had a lot of fun joining in.
A cleaner Kantiang Bay!
Much fun and enjoyment was had by all and everyone felt a sense of achievement in joining together to take care of Kantiang Bay in Ko Lanta and make it a cleaner place for everyone to enjoy.
Ko Lanta means 'dazzling island' and with its eight long deserted beaches, breathtaking sunsets and laid back feel, Ko Lanta has all the ingredients to charm and delight.
Kantiang Bay lies towards the south of the island and provides the last little hub of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes before you enter the deep south of the island. There are just three beaches further south before you get to the National Marine Park.
