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.
Pakarang Cape Highlights
The serene atmosphere and the feeling of isolation makes Pakarang Cape worth a visit. On the road that leads to the cape you’ll find a popular Thai restaurant named Krua Rim Tang. A short drive from Pakarang Cape you’ll find beachfront restaurants such as Coconut Beach Boatyard Restaurant and White Sand Beach Restaurant to the north, with Memories Beach Bar and Rimlay 2 Restaurant to the south. All good spots to lunch or dine after your excursion to Pakarang Cape.
From April to November, Pakarang Cape is a popular place for surfing. There are many breaks here that vary with the winds. Reef booties are nevertheless mandatory as large blocks of coral pave the sea bottom all around the cape.
