For those who love the feel of the warm white sand beneath their feet, Khao Lak is a village north of Phuket which has over 20km of beaches where it is possible to walk an unbroken route and take in the amazing scenery.
Peaceful and picturesque, the beachcomber will enjoy picking their way along the rocky edged stretch of Nangthong beach and the coral strewn shores of Cape Pakarang.
A general ban on development and an absence of jet skis in Khao Lak makes for a quieter atmosphere and the village retains its traditional character with a choice of family run restaurants offering a charming alternative to hotel dining.
