List Of Open/Remaining Beach Restaurants

For most visitors, Khao Lak is a beach holiday destination... and an important part of the holiday experience is dining at 'beach restaurants'. The closure order by the NCPO for businesses located on public (King's) land/beaches is creating a great deal of of uncertainty as to what restaurants remain. In order to clear up the uncertainty, I've compiled the following list from personal experience during July/August, or as reported in forum posts. It is certainly by no means comprehensive; so please add information:

- Bang Niang Beach (north end): Green Pepper, The Beach, Sabai Sabai, Pin & Pieu.

- Bang Niang Beach (south end - just north of The Sands): Peter's Bar & Restaurant

- Khuk Khak Beach (just north of J W Marriott): Phen, Andaman, Blue Mist.

- White Sand Beach: the Boatyard.

Whilst independent local restaurants formerly on public beach have been or are in the process of being removed, it would be wrong to give the impression that other than in the 4* or 5* resort restaurants which would welcome non-residents but are more expensive that there are no reasonably priced independent or reasonably priced restaurants set back from or overlooking the various beaches, especially in the Dry Season. These include:

- Bang Sak Promenades - various restaurants overlooking Bang Sak Beach south of the Sentido Gracelands Resort on two promenades.

- Bang Niang Beach (north end) - Chong Fah Restaurant, Chong Fah Resort Restaurant (open to non-residents), Sudala Beach Sunny Restaurant (open to non-residents), Chom Talay Beach Club Restaurant.

- Bang Niang Beach (south end) more commonly referred to as Nang Thong Beach (north end) - La-Own Resort Restaurant (open to non-residents), Ocean Breeze Resort Restaurant (open to non-residents, Green Beach Resort Restaurant (open to non-residents), Nang Thong Bay Resort Restaurant (open to non-residents), Suwan Palm Resort Beach Restaurant (open to non-residents), Laguna Resort Beach Restaurant (open to non-residents).

- Sunset Beach - any of the beach restaurants belonging to the hotels on this stretch plus at the southern end up the steps to the highway is the Muan Lai which has the best views of the northern coastline in Khao Lak.

- Khao Lak (South) Beach - Baan Sunetra Resort Restaurant (open to non-residents), Emerald, Briza and Merlin Resorts beach restaurants (open to non-residents.

I've posted elsewhere that I think the three White Sand Beach Restaurants will remain open as I believe they are on private land but it would be good for someone there/been there/ or in due course confirm that.

Hi

I haven't been dipping into these forums for a few weeks!

Is this closure a temporary one . Looking forward to out trip next year and didn't get to explore these beaches that I found just before we left Khao Lak and was hoping that we would be able to check them out next time!

Cheers

Yes, two of the three restaurants at White Sandy beach are currently open.

We will try to take a run along the beaches over the next week to up date.

Been a bit wet the past few days!

Hi, just wondering if anyone knows whether Famai is open (or even still there). We stayed at JWM in 2011 and this restaurant was located just south of the resort. We had many good nights there with Gecko-Man and the rest of the crew. Staying at the Sarojin this time but would like to venture down there to enjoy another "Khao Lak Beach" cocktail. : )

Thanks!

I've not heard anything but Fanai was as much on the beach to the left as the others to the right as was the new restaurant opened last Season and the massage places so unless the part they are on is private land they will be subject to the same Order for removal.
