Hat Klong Hin, Koh Lanta, Krabi Province, Thailand.

Here's a list of things I love about Koh Lanta:

- rocks.
- waves.
- green curry.
- how warm Beer Chang still tastes decent.
- sand.
- sunshine.
- sunsets.

Sunsets on Klong Hin Beach are a thing of beauty, indeed. And there's a very good chance, even during the high season, that you'll have them all to yourself. I don't recommend that you venture out into waist-deep water to tempt fate with your camera equipment like I am wont to do, but taking a sundowner from the beach is a brilliant way to wind down a day - and prep you for whatever the night may bring. Do yourself a favor and wander south from the main tourist hordes; you'll be glad you did.
