Must Visit Beaches in Khao Lak

Khao Lak is one of those locations that many tourists and travelers would overlook
when they are looking for a beach to lounge on. We have come to find out that this is
not because of a lack of beaches, but because many don’t know where to look. Khao
Lak is blessed with something you might not see elsewhere: an assortment of
untouched beaches on nearby islands, which gives you the traditional beach
experience. Better than that, it is also close to other islands which you can hop on for
something extra in the way of beach experiences. So, how about we get into this list
of the best beaches in Khao Lak that are worth a boat trip?

Nang Thong Beach
Depending on your activity level, you will usually find something to match your
energy at Nang Thong Beach. The first thing that stands out about this beach is the
unusual golden sand that meets the almost-white waters at a beautiful arc. The
beach area is wrapped around thick vegetation, which helps contribute to the
resulting ambiance. Even though Khao Lak beaches are not all that busy, this one is
a little bit on that busy side since it is close to the city center. Earning a reputation for
being a surfer’s delight, it is also a prime location for swimming and snorkeling at the
same time.

Sunset Beach
For some seclusion and quiet time, Sunset Beach does a great job. It is also torn
away from the other beaches, all thanks to the hills that border this location. It, thus,
makes one of the ideal spots for those looking for a honeymoon beach, families with
kids and tourists who just want to soak it all in. Speaking of soaking in, the palm
trees which line the front of the trees provide a more than ideal spot for lounging
during the day. Before leaving, make sure you stick around to see how the sunset
happens here. That way, you can better understand where the beach got its beautiful
name from.

Bang Niang Beach
If there were one beach to rival the offerings of Nang Thong Beach, it would be the
Bang Niang Beach. Coming from being relatively unknown to becoming one of the
best beaches in Khao Lak didn’t happen by chance, though. This beach had to
combine all the charm of a white, sandy beach with the picturesque setting of palm
trees along its tracks with a host of conveniences to get there. Besides, Bang Niang
has also become a choice option for snorkeling. This is yet another category –
besides swimming and sunbathing – where it directly competes with the attention of
tourists against Nang Thong.

Island Hopping
As mentioned earlier, Khao Lak might not be able to hold a candle of absolutely best
beaches in Thailand alone. Fortunately, this town makes up for that in being closer to
the Similan Islands and Surin Islands. These archipelagos are so close that they also
contribute to the host of best beaches near Khao Lak while allowing you the luxury of
seeing yet another set of islands on a single trip. Both archipelagos (Similan and
Surin islands) are almost identical in what they offer too. Besides being better
developed with clearer water and finer sands on their beaches, they also bring a
range of fun activities with them.
