Along the miles of coastline, there are several scattered towns and a road that runs parallel to the sea with successive detours, trails and roads that lead to beaches and resorts. As you can imagine, they anything but crowded and there are stretches of the coast that are almost deserted.

Opposite the sea, the mountains mark the boundary to this strip of land.

In addition to the range of activities available in Khao Lak, you can also take a boat or speedboat from the port of Thap Lamuย to the Similan Islands National Park, an archipelago of extraordinary beauty and an excellent diving area.

From Kao Lak you can also take a day trip to the famous islands of Tachai and Surin and, in some cases, stay overnight if you wish.

This place is the part of Thailand that was most affected by the Tsunami in 2004. The miles of coast open to the Andaman sea and the flatness of the inland area were exposed to the full force of the quake – a danger that they were not prepared for at that time.

Khao Lak has numerous attractions and a good selection of day and night activities if we consider that it is not far from Phuket and from Khao Sok National Park.

Nevertheless, as it does not have a large urban centre, the ambience is quiet and family-oriented.
