Relax Beach is a small beach that follows right after Long Beach and it is possible that administratively refers to it or rather, to the village of Ban Phra Ae. But Relax is located on a large away from the main Long Beach, so people tourists do not consider its nothing more than a beach near Relax bay resort .
Cozy, wide, hidden from passing cars for two hundreds of meters of palm groves and rural buildings. Not the cleanest from the available on Lanta beaches. I came across that on Lanta no longtails who like to stand in the rest of Thailand parked along any beach. It is forbidden on the island. by law, and indeed – neither on Long Beach, nor on Klong Dao, I don’t saw. But on Relax Beach, there were five pieces in the party.

The sand on Relax Beach is the same as on all the beaches of Lanta: white-yellow when dry, and dark yellow when wet. In the water under feet come across a lot of small stones and corals – this is very good observed at low tide.
The whole beach is a strip of sand 12-15 meters wide and long. about 450 meters with rounded stone edges – characteristic profile of the Thai “bay”. In addition to stone piles on land on Relax Beach, there are rocks and under water, especially on the left side beach (if you are facing the sea), and in the right – they are much less.
The beach, on the one hand, well maintained. It can be seen that in those areas that adjoin resorts, sand is cleaned and combed with a rake. But deserted spans of the coast clogged sea and human debris which is not always on time cleaned. I would say this is a beach for those who love semi-wild or wild places, without amenities, but without pandemonium Maximum for one or two days, then it will be here is boring.
Entry, depth and waves
If you face the sea opposite the main road of the beach Relax Beach on Lanta, then on the right you will have a cleaner entrance to water, and on the left – stony and stumbling. Therefore, Relax Beach is The time of low tides on Lanta remains cupable on the right and on the left stones are laid bare, and nobody swims here, it will not work.
At low tide, I measured, you need to move 10 meters from the shore, and the depth will be about the neck, and at high tide everything looks much more interesting. Already in about five meters it will be about the neck and it will turn out swim almost the entire length of the beach: the water level is quite enough to swim with his legs down. People not so much as you get used to see on the beaches in Thailand, so The atmosphere of relaxation is here uniquely.
Sun beds and shade
There is no shade on the beach during the afternoon. Cause that the beach is well washed by the waves, and all the old trees are already long ago it was demolished, only wide sandy space remained. And all the trees closest to the sea grow in a private area where you won’t just come in and throw a towel in tenechke.
There is a nice natural shadow at the far edges of the beach, and at any time of the day, but this pleasure is leveled uncompetitive flank. Like it or not, but swim lovers Relax Beach has a lot of walking under the sun. Sun beds and umbrellas have in coastal cafes, a lot, but only for their customers.
Relax Beach on Lanta

The whole shore is made of cafes a la “Bamboo Style”, where they cook food, sell drinks and offer sunbeds all over the place.
From Relax Beach on Lanta to the main road is relatively close, but the infrastructure of the village of Ban Phra E on the road itself is poorer than it was on Long Beach or Klong Dao. There is a paintball, a couple shops, some buildings, moto service and a lot of wasteland.
I would say that the beach is more suitable for one-time visits than for living, although if you move on foot and not on a motorbike – then there is everything necessary for the life of a tourist on vacation. The more than Long Beach itself with its infrastructure near by.

How to find the beach
Judging by the map, there are two trips to Relax Bay, and I drove only one of them is a normal betonka, straight, and leads from main road to the sea. Landmark for turning – pointer to the side Lanta Happy Hill , только повернуть надо не к Хэппи Хилл, а кby the sea. The road to the beach is good, 200 meters without primers and ends with parking right at the beach, with places for bike, and for a car. If you go by taxi, you will reach without a problem, and if yourself, the navigator will help you – all the points are on the map below.
