Koh Lanta: Beaches and areas
Koh Lanta is the largest of islands that make up the Marine Park. White, sandy beaches stretch almost 25km along the west coast. Stroll or jog along the beach, snorkel, stand-up paddle board, kayak – there is no shortage of beach activities. Inland you can explore caves, jungle trek and take in Lanta Old Town and its long history.
Close to Saladan Village, (the main entry point to the island), Klong Dao Beach is nearly 4km long. The wide, sandy, crescent-shaped beach is fringed with palm trees. Popular with families due to shallow water and child friendly services, Klong Doa is still large enough for a quiet escape.
