Khao Lak Beaches

Khao Lak is famous for its pristine beaches, and the entire coast is an immense beach just interrupted by rivers flowing into the ocean. The distances between each appear a lot greater than in Phuket, therefore, knowing what each beach looks like before booking your hotel is important. The busiest beaches are Bang Niang and Khu Khak beaches, both next to each other and roughly located in the centre of the Khao Lak coastline. The most beautiful are White Sand Beach and Ban Thap Tawan Beach, in the north.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early until I settled in Phuket in 1994. For the past 30 years, my passion for photography and my curiosity have taken me to every corner of Phuket, Bangkok and everywhere I could go in Thailand. My goal is to share my discoveries, photos and tips to help travellers plan their holidays by making Phuket 101 as easy as possible to use for everyone!
