Khao Lak Beaches 2013-14 High Season

They say a picture is worth a thousand words so here are links to photo albums of the various beautiful beaches along the Khao Lak coastline taken on our beach walks since the end of November 2013. The albums will be added to and updated during the remainder of our stay until April 2013.

They run north to south from Bang Sak Beach to Poseidon Beach:

* Bang Sak Beach, from Sentido Gracelands Resort, Bang Sak Promenade near Haadson Resort, Bangsak Village and Royal Bang Sak Beach Resorts to the creek across to the northern end of Pak Weeb Beach.

* Pak Weeb Beach from the creek across to Bang Sak Beach, past the Mai Khao Lak, Beyond and Le Meridien Resorts to the headland onto next stretch.

* Pak Weeb Beach from the headland after the Le Meridien Resort, past White Sand Beach, Kantary and Sarojin Resorts, past Coconut Beach (the area near the Boatyard Restaurant) to Cape Pakarang.

* Pakarang Beach from Cape Pakarang and the resorts along the top end (Apsara, Best Western South Sea Grand, Toklaburi, Palm Galleria) to the creek crossing to Khuk Khak Beach.

http://tiny.cc/dbh98w

* Khuk Khak Beach from Pakarang Beach past the J W Marriott Resort and adjacent restaurants, Andamania Resort across the creek and past, Lek's Bar, past the Blue Lagoon and Orchid Resorts to the currently dried up creek by the Sunset Bar over to Bang Niang Beach.

http://tiny.cc/kih98w

* Bang Niang Beach from the creek at Sunset Bar past the various resorts on the beach front, Shambala, Ayara Villas, Casa de la Flora, Fanari Beachfront, Sudala Beach, Chong Fah Resort, Sita Gardens, the new Chong Fah Bungalows, Mukdara, La Flora and Ramada Resorts, to the creek across to Nang Thong Beach.

http://tiny.cc/6gh98w

* Nang Thong Beach from the creek past the row of restaurants, La Own Resort, Sands Resort, Leaf Resort (not beachfront but direct access), Andaman Beach Resort, Ocean Breeze, Green Beach, Nang Thong Bay (NTBR1), Centara Seaview, Nang Thong Beach (NTBR2), Suwan Palm, Baan Khao Lak and Laguna Resorts to rocks over to Sunset Beach.

http://tiny.cc/rfh98w

* Sunset Beach from rocks next to Laguna, past Sensimar, Khao Lak Resort, Wanaburee, Paradise, Bayfront, Palm Beach, Sunset and Baan Krating Resorts to the Khao Lak Lamru National Park headland.

http://tiny.cc/17g98w

*Khao Lak (South) Beach from the Khao Lak Lamru National Park headland past Baan Sunetra, Luckanawadee, Briza, Diamond, Emerald and Merlin Resorts to where it crosses over on to Poseidon Beach.

http://tiny.cc/a3g98w

* Poseidon Beach past Komol's Corner and overlooked by Poseidon Bungalow Resort to creek across to Tab Lamu beach (within Royal Thai Navy Base)

http://tiny.cc/k0g98w

* .. and not forgetting Koh Kho Khao, the small island to the north of Bang Sak Beach reached by short ferry crossing from Baan Nam Khem, the location of the Tsunami Memorial.

I hope these bring back memories for those who have previously enjoyed these wonderful and very individual beaches and perhaps encourage those who haven't been to Khao Lak to do so.

I also hope you enjoy viewing the beaches as we do walking them.

2 weeks and we'll be there! So excited. Thanks for posting the pictures. A real labour of love I think. Pak weeb beach and its restaurants looks amazing. We're staying at the Sensimar. How long/ cost to get there by taxi. Would it be better to spend the day there rather than go for a meal in the evening?

Procol

The early pictures on KKK are shots of the once gorgeous Virgin Beach that was too remote and difficult to get to other than with a 4x4. The restaurant that was there is now derelict and there is no-one there to clean the rubbish that washes up with the tide. The beach shown at the Cousin Resort is beautiful and stretches all the way along the western side of the island from just up from the pier to the Sunset Restaurant at the tip.

Not telling you or everyone will go there! No, seriously. the Coconut Beach section of Pak Weeb by the Boatyard Restaurant because it is palm tree lined like the picture post cards, the sand is white contrasting with the turquoise ocean and the view is fantastic. It is also a great walking beach with relatively few visitors and only the White Sand Beach portion spoiling it IMO with the rows and rows of loungers down to he sea, the only place in Khao Lak that you see this.
