White Sand Beach
White Sand is a relaxing beach, with an offshore reef making it better for sunbathing than swimming. There are a few hotels serving great food and cocktails at one end, but take a short walk and all you’ll hear is the sea crashing off the reef. If you plan on visiting at midday, make sure you take your shades – it gets so bright you’ll be dazzled by the sights otherwise.
White Sand Beach is a 2.6-km stretch of idyllic sands on the Pak Weep Coast, just north of Khao Lak’s Pakarang Cape peninsula. True to its name, the beach is popular due to its white sands lined by palms, and the waves of the Andaman lapping up onshore.
It is a spacious coastline with crystal turquoise water and pure bright fine sand, so you don’t need special shoes. The entrance to the water is very smooth. This beach is suitable for different categories of people, lonely travellers, relaxation getaway lovers etc. It is partially crowded during the high season.
Coconut beach is located on the Andaman Sea (part of Indian ocean) and it is in the 7th place out of 97 beaches in the Phang-nga Province region 44.4 km away from its center, the city of Phang-nga. It is one of the beaches of Ban Khuk Khak settlement, just 4.7 km from its center. The beach is located in an urban area. It is partially covered by trees which give natural shade.
Natai Beach is located in Phang Nga in mainland Thailand. You get the best of both worlds as Phang Nga is connected to the island of Phuket through Sarasin Bridge but remains far less crowded than its famous neighbour. The drive from Natai Beach to Phuket Airport takes just 25 minutes. Natai Beach itself is a 10-kilometre stretch of golden sand fringed by palm trees and not much else.
When you arrive at this tropical beach, it will look like a painting of your imagination with no shady bars, buzzing jet skis or big hotels. All you can see is an unending stretch of pristine sand and azure water lapping up on the shores. This is where you would want to relax for hours, listen to the waves, feel the wind and sand under your feet.
Activities and attractions at Natai Beach
The sea is usually calm and clear from November to May, hence this vast stretch of beach lets you take a long walk along the shores. There are a few snorkeling sites where you can see good coral reefs, especially in the afternoon when the tide is low. A drive across Phang Nga province will also let you see the various land attractions such as national parks and Buddhist temples.

Despite its seclusion, Natai beach hosts its own selection of exciting luxury beach clubs too. The Baba and Akyra beach clubs are relatively new in the area offering tons of beachside fun for travelers.
For the Dining at Natai
Thai food, especially seafood freshly caught from the ocean. If you are feeling adventurous, visit the nearby Khok Kloi village where you can find local eateries and places to shop.
Pakarang Beach, also called Coral Beach, is an extension of Khuk Khak Beach on the other side it borders Cape Pakarang. There are only a handful of resorts on this almost deserted beach. The sea is a long stretch of shallow and during low tide the beach is very wide so you can make endless walks on the beach. Swimming is more difficult, but if you sleep here at the beach there is nothing wrong because the resorts have beautiful large swimming pools.
Pakarang Cape is located in the extension of Pakarang Beach. The beach here runs in a kind of winding pointed shape. Leam Pakarang as it is also called here means coral point.
Bangsak Beach is a quiet and beautiful beach oasis. With fine sand and shaded restaurants, this beach is an ideal place to watch the sunset. The waves are excellent for bodysurfing.
Bang Sak, like many other beaches in Khao Lak, is an ideal beach for a long beach walk with a stop at one of the small restaurants.
Nang Thong Beach
Nang Thong Beach is the main beach of Khao Lak. So the town behind Petchkasem Highway is also called Nang Thong although the official name is Ban Bang La On. Most locals call it simply Khao Lak or sometimes Khao Lak Center.
This very beautiful sandy beach is interspersed by rocks that give Nang Thong Beach a picturesque backdrop. In the season the calm waters of Nang Thong Beach are suitable for swimming at high and low tides.
Laem Haad Beach
this beach is at its best at low tide! Because of the low tide you can walk a long way over the sandbank that is created. The white sand and beautiful palm trees provide beautiful Instagram pictures! From the sandbank you can see Koh Yao Noi up close, you would almost get the idea that you can just walk there!
Because the beach is at its best when it’s low tide, it’s good to know that you can’t swim there as well, you can bathe and sunbathe on the stand. Remarkable are the many holes in the ground made by crabs, some of them must be really big ones! You can also see whole colonies of little crabs fleeing in front of you.
Khlong Jark Beach
Klong Jark Beach is considered the best beach in Koh Yao Noi. With Pasaï Beach, a little further, it is the most suitable for swimming. The water is deep enough to swim even at low tide. The rest of Koh Yao Noi island offers beaches with low water depth and/or protruding rocks.
Klong Jark Beach is divided into 3 sectors. Located on the east side of Koh Yao Noi, the sunrises are beautiful. The beach is partly shaded by the trees bordering it. There are plenty of hotels, restaurants, massage parlors, and bars along the beach.
