Koh Lanta Sunsets


Is there any place better to watch a sunset than Koh Lanta?  If there is, I haven’t found it yet.

The island is skinny and long, with nearly all of the beaches on the west coast.  Because of that, Koh Lanta sunsets are glorious almost every night — even when it’s overcast!

The first Lanta sunset.  I’ve resigned myself to the fact that this is the best photo I will take, ever.

This pink sunset was actually on the island’s east coast, making it a special surprise.  The sky was this brilliant pink only briefly, just in time for celebrating Loy Krathong.

This yellow sunset was the perfect way to end a day at the resort.

There was a special moment at twilight each day when every color on the beach turned electric.  This was that moment, and everything turned bright purple.

This crazy orange sunset was seen from a restaurant perched on stilts on a cliff overlooking the ocean.  The setting was magical, and the cloud action was pretty intense.

Are you a sunset guru?  Go to Koh Lanta.  You won’t be disappointed.

    Gorrrrrgeous. I’m such a sucker for sunsets.

  3. Oh MY, there you go again making me *very* jealous in the middle of my workday. These are breathtaking. I need to stop talking about taking a trip and actually do it.

    Amazing, girl. Stunning photography. Living the dream!

  5. Stunning! I also found Southeast Asia to have the most amazing sunsets. My husband and I went out on the beaches in Borneo every night for a photoshoot on our honeymoon–we just couldn’t resist!

    Can’t wait to get the some islands for this, the sunset here in Chinag Mai is good, but not as good as these pictures!

    Amazing sunsets, I saw quite a few this weekend on Phuket – although the beaches were a little crowded for my taste, I think next time I go down South I’ll definitely hit up Koh Lanta, would love some more details on your travels there – did you go from Krabi?

    Gorgeous photos. I agree the sunsets in Koh Lanta are the most amazing I’ve seen anywhere, although Langkawi comes a close second. We were there at the start of the monsoon season and enjoyed the most amazing storms out to sea every night. Of course wandering the beach late at night during a storm was what led to our 5 year old son getting an electric shock from the loose power cords dangling off the edge of the Bob Marley bar next door to the hotel you stayed at!
