Beaches in Koh Lanta

1.   Kor Kwang  - Kor Kwang, which means "deer neck" in Thai, has an elegantly curved beach line, resembling the sway of a dear's neck. When the tide is low, you can walk to a little island at the end of the cape. This beach, with its attractively curved shape has lovely sand and clear aquamarine water. Extremely shallow and good for leisure swimming.

How to get there

Convenient to access by  local vehicle from Saladan. Private cars can also reach the beach using the same route to Laem Kor Kwang, about 3 kilometers away from the market. 

 

2.   Klong Dao- the most popular beach on the island with a spectacular 3 km long beach of fine white sand and shallow clear waters.

How to get there

 It takes around 10 minutes to drive from Saladan Pier to Klong Dao area.

 

3.   Pra Ae (Long Beach)It’s about 4km long and has the nicest white sand on Koh Lanta. The water – while not as shallow as Klong Dao, the depth is just right.

 How to get there

From Saladan Pier, drive southward for about 5 kilometers to find the sign of Had Phra Ae Public Park. On the right there is a provided parking where cars can be parked.  

 

4.   Klong Nin– A beach covered with coconut and pine trees and the back end is tropical rain forest. Klong Nin offers a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere and its sand is white and fine. The northern stretch is the best for swimming as it has far fewer rocky paths than the southern part of the beach.

How to get there

By 4-wheel vehicles or attached tricycles from Talad Saladan. To come by car, tourists have to  go round the hill for about 2 kilometers to find a right turn onto the National Park of Mu Koh Lanta. Drive further for about 50 meters; the lane to the beach is on the right. 

 

5.   Ba Kantiang Bay- Kantiang Bay lies towards the southern tip of Koh Lanta and provides the last little hub of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes before entering the more sparsely populated, southern area 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 will find a kilometer of white sand beach and crystal clear waters set against a backdrop of tropical rainforest reaching up into the hillside. 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.Ba Kantiang Bay offers a pristine beach with an un-crowded feeling even during the busy holidays. There are excellent corals for snorkelling as well.

How to get there

About a half hour drive from Saladan Village. It’s a much quieter, more secluded beach than Klong Dao or Long Beach and boasts some of Koh Lanta’s best soft golden sand which stretches for nearly 2 kilometers.

 

6.   Tanod Cape (Laem Tanod)- It is the southern end of the island, actually looking more a cape than a beach. Some call "Laem Ta Nod" meaning Ta Nod Cape and it is where the twin bays curve and meet each other. Ta Nod Beach is regarded as one of the most beautiful beaches, delightful and tranquil beach. Visitors come here to see the Lighthouse, the symbol of Koh Lanta like I did. It’s hardly to find any visitors here because of the dirt and sloppy road to go. Once you are here, don't miss to climb up to the Lighthouse and take a photo. Sunset here is unique and second to none. A view off this island spot is Koh Ngai. There is no resort here as it is in the national park area.

How to get there

An easy drive down from Ba Kan Tiang beach towards the southern end of Lanta Yai Island, you will find the Lanta Island National Park in which the Tanod Cape lies.

 

7.   Klong Jark Beach- A gorgeous small bay towards the southern end of Koh Lanta, Khlong Jak features steep rocky headlands covered in tropical forest and a fresh stream running down to the middle of the beach. The bay is south of Kantiang Bay and just north of Mai Phai Bay (Ao Mai Phai), making it the second last beach along this coast of Lanta all over the country.
The beach is simply superb for swimming, free of rocks and with deep blue waters. We reckon it is probably the best beach on Ko Lanta. Khlong Jak is definitely one of Lanta's better places to stay, too. The vibe is more relaxed and hippy than the touristy beaches which have more of a party feel. Here, more than most places on Lanta, you'll find that you get what you pay for.

How to get there

From Ba Kantiang Bay, Klong Jark Beach is a short 10-minute drive away. It is also close by the Elephant Trekking and Waterfall site.
