Pakarang Cape in Khao Lak

Coral Cape between Khuk Khak and Pak Weep Beaches

Pakarang Cape makes for an intriguing getaway in Khao Lak. The cape juts out into the sea between Khuk Khak and Pak Weep beaches providing great views of the beaches to the north and south. Sparsely treed and littered with shells and broken coral (Pakarang means coral in Thai), it’s not the most sunbather-friendly, but it’s definitely an interesting and quiet spot that’s easily accessed by car or motorbike.

There’s a handful of restaurants, tour agencies, and shops located a short distance before the tip of Pakarang Cape. Keep a lookout too for the reputedly tsunami-resistant building that offers a great view of the beach, the cape, and the Andaman Sea. You can also meet local fishermen catching small fish along the beach and observe the sea birds that rest on the coral that protrudes from the sea.
