Thai Muang Beach Guide

Everything You Need To Know About Thai Muang Beach

Thai Muang Beach a very large slice of largely undeveloped tropical bliss, just north of Natai Beach and about halfway between Phuket and Khao Lak. Home to a couple of small local villages, a golf course, a sea turtle sanctuary and a national park, it is one of the most natural and quiet beaches in southern Thailand. With its powdery white sands, which stretch well out into the warm, clear sea, it is also among the most attractive.

Thai Muang Beach is mostly undiscovered by tourists, with very few hotels in the area and no jet skis, speedboats, touts and peddlers to disrupt your otherwise ideal escape from the rest of the world. It is very long – roughly 30km, in total, and practically arrow-straight for the majority of it – so finding a patch for yourself is no challenge. With a road running parallel to the sand a few metres inland, it is also easily accessible.

Chief among these is the turtle sanctuary at the Phang Nga Coastal Fisheries Research and Development Centre, with is on the beach road. The main attraction here are the large concrete tanks which are home to the endangered green and Olive Ridley sea turtles. The centre specialises in breeding programmes to try to boost the numbers of these species, as well as treating and re-releasing injured creatures.

The huge Khao Lampi – Hat Thai Muang National Park, dominating most of the northern end of the beach, is also well worth a visit. Covering 72,000 sq km of striking natural beauty, its dense jungle is home to some large waterfalls, including the multi-tiered Lampi falls and the 40m slope of Ton Prai waterfall. The park has some excellent nature trails, ATV routes and even some old tin mining machinery from the 18th century industrial boom in the area.

Towards the southern end of the beach, you will find the Bo Dan hot springs and the Thai Muang Beach Golf Course.

Thai Muang Beach Restaurants & Food

Thai Muang village, which is situated roughly at the mid-point along the beach’s length, has a selection of small local restaurants to choose from, with most serving fresh seafood. Particularly noteworthy among these is I See Seafood Restaurant, which boasts some innovative dishes including a som tam-style seaweed salad. There is only one restaurant specialising in western food – Sea Ranch Pizza Restaurant.

Where to Stay near Thai Muang Beach

With so much of Thai Muang Beach taken up by the vast national park, there is extremely little space left over for holiday accommodation. Aside from camping in the park, the only other choices are the hotels around the Bo Dan hot springs, including the Waterjade Health Land Resort & Spa and The Hotspring Beach Resort & Spa. There is significantly more choice available along Natai Beach, which is directly to the south of Thai Muang.
