Location

Lanta Island, known as a favorite place of travelers who love peace and want to escape the crowds, is a large island with a native community. Most beautiful beaches are on the west side of the Island.

Kantiang Bay lies towards the southern tip of Lanta Island and provides the last little hub of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes before entering the more sparsely populated on the deep south of the island. As you enter the bay, you are greeted by a kilometre of white sand beach and crystal clear waters, setting against a backdrop of a tropical rainforest reaching up into the hillside. Kantiang Bay is the best place to base yourself if you want to dive in some of the top dive sites in Thailand. With spectacular reefs, unmatched marine diversity and great visibility, Kantiang Bay offers you to get more chance to enjoy the relaxed and laid back atmosphere of island life.
