One of the best beaches in Ko Lanta. Maybe the best one. It's in the little bay down from the main road with the cozy bar. Also few monkeys showed up so be careful about your things. It's one of the smallers but it's more...More

Nui Beach has buildings on several levels down the hillside, most of them built from bamboo and thatch. On the way down the hill to the beach, you'll also pass through a small coconut grove. A natural stream from the mountain ends with a pretty...More

Worth visiting to enjoy the sunset, especially if you are lucky to watch it with some monkeys running around! Very quiet beach, helps you relax within minutes.

Nui Bay Beach We kept reading how lovely, undeveloped and peaceful this beach was so we made visiting a priority while we had a car rental. Lovely cove with soft sand and clear water totally ruined by super loud techno music from the beach bar....More

Nui Bay Beach We rented a car and drove there. You could do that, or rent a motorcycle or depending on where you are staying you could go by tuk tuk. From the top of the hill you must walk down quite a few stairs.
