Klong Toab is an unusual mix of beach, rocky point and mangrove estuary
Khlong Toab is the first beach in the rugged south where the mountain falls into the sea creating small, sandy bays and hidden beaches. The road winds up and down forested headlands, giving glimpses of the occasional remote resort on a small, romantic beach.
The sand gets coarser moving down the island, and is fairly coarse here. The water is clear. When swimming in this area one needs to beware of rocks at low tide.
Khlong Toab is a collection of small beaches cut by rocky outcrops. This picturesque section of beach offers a surprising mix of interesting beachfront accommodations, with budget bungalows at Riversand Resort and 5-star luxury in the spa resort of Rawi Warin.
Moonlight Bay Resort is one of the most innovative on the island, beautifully crafted into a hillside and mini-headland, and accessed by a bridge over a mangrove stream. The villa rooms here are surrounded by lush natural forest. See our photos.
The peak of luxury is found in Rawi Warin Resort & Spa, which offers a range of beachfront accommodations from luxury garden villas to seaview hotel rooms. Here is a spa with a full range of health & wellness treatments. Family friendly, this also has a children's pool and water slide.
On the same short stretch of beautiful beach Lanta Palace Resort & Beach Club offers mid range, 3-star beachfront chalets right by the sand.
Khlong Toab village runs down the road at the back of the resorts, while the larger centre of Khlong Nin, with more shops, banks, restaurants and beach bars is just down the road... or for the fit, within walking distance down the beach.
