Kor Kwang Beach is located at the northernmost tip of the island, getting off from the main road. Nowadays, it is on to a dirt road but don't despair because the reward is soft white sand and warm water; with only a smattering of small resorts. Visitors from nearby hotels on Klong Dao may walk around here occasionally. It is also one of the best beaches in Koh Lanta to watch the sunset.

Twinbay Resort & Spa
Pra-ae Beach Just south of Klongdao and equally as popular. Its stunning crescent of pristine white sands some 4 kms long, takes your breath away with its beauty. The beach is steeper and the water less sheltered than at Klongdao, which makes for safe yet spectacular swimming for adults. Many resorts have settled down on Pra-Ae Beach for quite some time, while vacant lands are still visible as tropical forests spread down to the beach.

Klong Jeek It is hidden from the tropical green hills and coconut trees. The fabulous stretch of white sand and the scenic landscape make this beach an excellent place to stay for a long holiday. Budgeted bungalows and resorts disperse by the beach—during the high season they are fully booked so it's recommended to make reservations well in advance. These accommodations tend to close down during the green season to renovate, fix and repair the rooms and prepare for the next high season. If you choose to be around here, it means you have no interest to go elsewhere too often due to the bumpy road.
