Deserted beaches, crystal clear waters, and raw jungle forests; we love Khao Lak for its untouched beauty. There are no high-rise buildings, no crowds of tourists, and no pollution. Explore the spectacular natural surroundings, the unspoiled beach coastline, and the network of sandy beach trails running from Khao Lak to Bang Sak. A holiday in Khao Lak is like being tucked into your own corner of paradise.
Set on the fringes of the Khao Lak resort, Khao Lak-Lam Ru National Park is a collage of sea cliffs plunging into crystal blue waters, stunning beaches, winding estuaries, and tropical evergreen forests. Visit Tone Chong Fah waterfall, which drops 10 meters into a pool that is good for swimming, or Nam Tok Lam Ru, a stunning five-tiered falls. When trekking in the forest you may well see flying lemurs, drongos, monkeys, and tapirs.
Limestone cliffs with intricate sea caves leading into exotic lagoons characterise the stunning Phang Nga Bay, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The bay is filled with limestone islands that have, over time, collapsed into themselves, leaving the interior intact. The unique eco-system that composes Phang Nga Bay includes tropical monkeys, birds, and fish.
Diving and snorkelling offshore from the Similan and Surin Islands, located near Khao Lak, is popular. View some of Thailand's most beautiful coral, home to exotic fish and sea mammals. The journey is about an hour by speedboat from Khao Lak. Many tour companies offer day trips as well as overnight trips on board the boat.
