Beaches in Khao Lak
Khao Lak has a 30 km stretch of coastline, nearly all of which is white sand beach and this is why the area is so popular as a tourist destination. Starting from the southern edge of Khao Lak and going north the beaches are:
- Khao Lak South Beach
- Sunset Beach
- Nang Thong Beach
- Bang Niang Beach
- Khuk Khak Beach
- Pakarang Beach
- Coconut Beach
- Bang Sak beach
The busiest of this long line of beaches is Bang Niang Beach, which is stretches southward Bang Niang to Bang La On, which are the two main tourist towns in Khao Lak. There are lots of hotels, restaurants and shops a short distance from this beach making it perfect for traditional family beach holidays. For a quieter and less developed beach destination you need to travel either north or south from this main central beach. Khao Lak South Beach is a good option. This 2 km beach only has a small number of hotels and at the edge of beach are large granite and shade giving tropical trees. The town has restaurants and other facilities, but not enough to attract the crowds. Khao Lak South Beach also backs onto Khao Lak-Lam Ru National Park, which is an enjoyable place to go for short treks.
