Dining at any of the best beachfront restaurants in Khao Lak listed below will surely make your day. Despite the area referred to as Khao Lak comprising almost 20 kilometres of virgin beachfront, only a handful of beach clubs and seaside restaurants can be found on this long strip of sand.
Many of the restaurants on the coast of Phang Nga Province are attached to resorts, yet a few standalone diners have made a name for themselves due to their distinct atmosphere and the good quality of food. From upscale beach clubs to unpretentious bamboo-and-thatch local restaurants, you’ll surely find a place to suit your taste in our Khao Lak beach dining selection below.
