Ba Kan Tiang and South
Ba Kan Tiang:
Excellent swimming conditions and a fabulous stretch of white sand surrounded by the mountains of Ko Lanta's national park make this small beach very impressive. At just over a kilometre in length and with only a few resorts, Ba Kan Tiang feels very private and secluded. Accommodation ranges from simple family-run places to a five-star resort.
Klong Jark Beach:
Klong Jark (or waterfall beach) is just 3 kilometers from the waterfall in the national park. This is a fairly private beach due to access only by unpaved road. The beach gets its name from the waterfall, which is just a 3 kilometer walk away. The trip, which follows a stream, features elephant trekking and sighting of a variety of birds and wild creatures, including the monkey wild pig.
Last Beach or Bamboo Bay is the last beach on east side before the national park area begins. It is a slightly curved beach around five hundred meters long, with lovely white sands and clear waters. Swimming is suitable here when the tide is not too deep. The northern part of this beach has rock pools where it’s possible to snorkel and watch the fish. It is surrounded by high national park mountains. This beach is extremely private, and feels cast away from the outside world. Bamboo Bay contains a handful of basic resorts, spread along the beach.
