Pak Weeb Beach Update

We have been staying in the area for a few days and can provide the following information.

Goon and Gib restaurant on White Sandy beach has been open since 1 August and will stay open into the evenings if they have customers.

Khun Dang restaurant is open on the beach next to the Mai Kaho Lak. Not sure about Elicious or Mama and Mr Leks, it was poring with rain when we rode past.

All other beach restaurants closed including the Rimlay.

A good restaurant open on the road running down from the highway to the Kantary, Krua Rim Trung (spelling). Good value about 1km from the Kantary.

Thanks for update. Keep them coming please.

Is Krua Rim Trung on the left coming down from the 711?

Hi Arandora,

Yes it is. Have had a couple of really good meals there. Good food and good price. Would thoroughly recommend.

Both Elicious and Mama & Mr Leks are closed and being pulled down as we speak. The only restaurant in this area that doesn't appear to be being removed is Khun Dang.

It appears that 1 or 2 of the restuarants may being rebuilt back off the beach on the other side of the access road.

Forgot to add earlier the the Boatyard is also closed.

Khun Dang is now closed and being removed from the beach area. Now all of the beach restaurants between Beyond and Mai Khao Lak are closed. There appears to be two new buildings being constructed just north of the Mai Khao Lak and the creek, set back from the beach. There is also a restaurant and massage hut being built about 500m south of Mai, set back from the beach on the land side of the access track.

White Sand Beach restaurant has also opened next to Goon and Gib.

Across the creek on to Bang Sak Beach? That's a new resort, just started when we left in April on the site of one destroyed by the Tsunami. It will beinteresting to see how the Mai reacts to the new beach rules in the High Season as the, and others like the Kantary and Sarojin, had placed loungers etc on the beach and the Mai had built their own beach restaurant area.

Same side of the creek as the Mai Khao Lak.

Interesting your comment about how the Mai reacts. We were going to note that the beach chairs of the Mai are occupying the same beach side area as the other restaurants have been removed from??

Will keep adding as the situation develops.

That may very well be an extension to the Mai. There were some elephants helping clear the land when we were there.
