Bamboo Bay is the furthest beach away from Saladan around a 40 minute taxi ride away. Bamboo Bay has crystal clear waters and a fine white sandy beach with only a handful of simple resorts scattered along the bay. It’s surrounded by mountains covered with rain forests. Due to its location you will find a quite unspoilt paradise.
Bamboo Bay is the definition of a secluded beautiful beach. Until recently there wasn’t even a tarmac road leading to Bamboo Bay, and even though one has now been built, this is still the quietest and most peaceful area on Koh Lanta. If you’re looking for what Thailand looked like 20 years ago, Bamboo Bay is it. You’ll have to be prepared for a lack of amenities though as there are just a few resorts and little else here.
How To Get To Bamboo Bay
The quickest way to get to Bamboo Bay is by Express Transfer, which combines a minivan and speedboat to get you door to door from Krabi Airport to your Koh Lanta hotel. You can also get a Private Minivan Transfer which is perfect for families and groups of friends.

Due to its location, development hasn’t arrived as quickly to Bamboo Bay as many other beach areas. Which is great for people who want to get away from it all.
