The emphasis here truly is on natural beauty – islands of rock and trees, peaceful beaches, long boats floating in the waters and incredible wildlife.
A network of interesting little towns and villages full of bustling markets, seafood shacks and lively bars ensure that you’re never too far from civilisation in Khao Lak, for that true taste of Thai hospitality and culture.

Your guide to Khao Lak holidays
Browse the atmospheric open-air marketplace at Bang Niang, a vivid glimpse into the fast-paced Thai urban life. It opens its doors to the public three times a week and sells everything from grilled fish curries to embroidered bags. It’s a great introduction to your Khao Lak holiday and a good place to get your souvenir shopping done early.
For a dose of the incredible natural beauty that the region has to offer, head to Lam Ru National Park, immediately south of Khao Lak town. The huge park is a colourful mix of iconic sea cliffs, forest-covered hills, waterfalls, lagoons and hidden coves. Keep a lookout for wildlife including monkeys, lizards, tapirs and even bears. Seek out the scenic open-air restaurant perched atop a shady hill overlooking the sea, a great place to have lunch with a view. It’s also a good starting point for a short nature walk.
Fewer places on earth boast beaches as jaw-droppingly spectacular as Thailand. Holidays in Khao Lak will involve a serious amount of relaxing on the golden white sands, so be sure to pack those swim shorts, plenty of sunblock and a good book. Whilst certain areas get inevitably busy, there are still plenty of spots in which to relax with your feet dipping into the warm and clear waters.
Bangsak Beach is a pretty quiet option and is a long, curved stretch of white sand. It’s popular with locals coming for a picnic and is home to a few small seafood stalls – the grilled fish dishes are favourites amongst residents.
Nestled beneath the mountains of the national park, Khao Lak’s southern beach is a peaceful spot, too, however for something a little livelier then Nang Thong Beach is your best bet. Here you’ll find bars, shops, diving schools and watersports including snorkelling.
