Welcome to khaolakbeach.com
Comprehensive and competent information about the area of Khao Lak the wonderful destination in the South of Thailand, compiled by Thailand travel writer Richard Doring

The name Khao Lak is derived literally from one of the main mountain peaks ( Lak mountain ) located in this small mountainous region about one (1) hour from Phuket. The area is generally a series of villages located mainly in the Takua Pa District and partly in the Thai Mueang District in the province of Phang Nga, Thailand. Originally the main village of Khao Lak, the original beach and bay of Khao Lak actually were located in Thai Mueang district. As Khao Lak and neighboring villages rapidly began to expand through the introduction seaside resorts and tourist related business the generalisation of the name Khao Lak has spread almost as far north as Takua Pa.

The beach at Khao Lak has been developed into a refuge for nature lovers and tourists seeking a peaceful, quiet resort area. The viewpoint at the KM 57.2 marker on highway 4 offers a fantastic view.

A golden-beige ribbon of sand, picturesquely interspersed by some rocky outcrops, divides the blue waters of the Andaman Sea from lush green palm groves. A belt of casuarina pines and coconut palm trees hugs the 12 km long beach.

In the flat land, 600 to 2000 meters inland, rubber and coconut palm plantations, fields and tiny villages extend into the distance.

Many lakes hide in between, remnants of the flourishing tin mining industry from nearly two centuries ago.

Setting the stage to this vibrant town is the magnificent backdrop of the densely forested Khao Lak-Lamru National Park .

Two (2) km further along the H4 is the small town of Ban Bang Niang. Here, restaurants, shopping areas and a very popular weekly market can be found.

You need a taxi transfer to Khao Lak?

Our Taxis will take you from and to the airport safely, and our drivers have a green taxi license plate and a real taxi drivers license! All our drivers drive very carefully and defensively. The speed limit for taxis in Phang Nga Province is 90 km/h!

On this road from Phuket Airport we drive you any time of the day for 1600 Baht, which is very good value for money (for 3 persons only 2000 Baht, night surcharge 500 Baht). The official price for two people with airport taxis is 1800 Baht (due to expensive fuel prices). Some taxis will offer this transfer for rockbottom 1300 Baht, but they are outlaw taxis and have no taxi license plate, must drive 4 times daily, and their nerves are on edge, which can be dangerous!

Prices of 700 Baht as sometimes advertised on the Internet, are fairy tales. Some mini buses offer airport transfer for 1200 Baht, but these are not private taxis for which their charge is actually too high. You may arrive hours too early for your leaving flight or have to wait for other passengers from an arriving flight.
