Lamru National Park Headquarters

The headquarters of the Lamru National park are located some 50 metres off Highway 4, on the headland of Leam Hin Chang, immediately south of Khao Lak.

On entering the grounds you’ll have a few choices of what to do: to the left is a path leading down to a viewpoint and eventually to a small sandy beach, ‘Lek’ (small) Beach. It’s quite a walk and you should be prepared with lots of drinking water, insect repellent and good shoes but you’ll be rewarded by the beach’s beautiful coral and delicious seclusion.

For the more sedate you’ll be glad to know that a restaurant with truly stunning hillside views out over the Andaman Sea lies only a few metres from the main gate. In actual fact, this is a tiny part of the 125 sq km park so there’s a lot more to explore inland if you want to make a go of it.
