Khao Lak

With over 20 kilometres / 12 miles of white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and dense tropical rainforest, Khao Lak still maintains a remote island vibe. Despite being one of Thailand’s quieter destinations you’ll find accommodation and facilities for every budget. Khao Lak is the perfect place to relax and enjoy breathtaking natural surroundings.

Khao Lak Sea Life

Koh Bon is the best place to see manta rays in this area, although they do seem to like Koh Tachai too where they share the limelight with whale sharks. Richelieu Rock is also a great place to spot whale sharks. February, March and April are when you are most likely to be lucky with encountering these gentle giants. When you are not expectantly staring passed barracuda and batfish into the blue, you’ll notice the reef is chock full of colour. Amongst the usual suspects, you’ll find octopus chasing each other and giant cuttlefish shimmering, trumpetfish up-ending to try to hide, honeycomb and giant morays stuffed into holes and lionfish threateningly patrolling. Macro lovers won’t be disappointed either, numerous nudibranch can be spotted, mantis shrimp scuttle around and seahorses feature on some sites too.

How To Get There

Khao Lak’s closest airport is Phuket, which is just an hour away by road.
