Khao Lak is the prime holiday destination in southern Thailand’s Phang Nga Province. It may sound a bit confusing but what is usually called Khao Lak is an approximately 30-kilometre long strip of sand that starts at Khao Lak Beach to end at Baan Nam Khem, a fishing village situated at the entrance of Takua Pa Town. Six ‘main’ beaches can be found along this strand: Khao Lak, Nang Thong (and its resort town named La On Village), Bang Niang, Khuk Khak, Pak Weep, and Bangsak.
The main characteristic of Khao Lak beaches is that most of them are scarcely developed, offering visitors wild and deserted long strips of sand lapped by the mighty Andaman Sea, and bordered by lush vegetation including ashoka, tropical almond, cajeput, screwpine trees, and more. Read below, a short description of each of Khao Lak beaches, so you could pick the right destination for your next holiday in the charming province of Phang Nga.
