Khao Lak’s Beaches: Mesmerizing Moments

What is a sea-beach? If you search over the internet, it will amply show you numerous search results including photos, videos, description and what not! But, these are mere some highbrow literary meanings, we all know. Sea-beaches are something much more that is adjacent to our personal lives and some mesmerising memories. To some, beach is limitless fun with pals, to some; it is the canvas where the duo has signed in some fanciful agreement of love, trust and togetherness while it brings the reminiscences of the childhood trip to some other.

Khao Lak, that’s literary meaning is ‘Lak Mountain’ is a chain of villages on the heart of Thailand. No, no, no, don’t judge a book by its cover. Don’t assume it from my uttering ‘a village’ a chain of the huts with lanterns. Khao Lak can at ease compete and beat any internationally recognised visiting spots of the world with its dazzling picturesque views and adventurous tourist points. Scuba, snorkelling, wildlife and nature tour, Ton Chong Fa Waterfall, International Tsunami Museum all are here to make your holidays at Khao Lak the most memorable of your ‘tour series’. But, above all, there are a number of beaches here in Khao Lak that is the most tourist attracting charm of the spot.

  • Khao Lak Beach is the most important and central beach of Thailand where ocean blue crystal clear water and fine golden sands confidante each other and whistling breeze sings the saga of eternal love to the tourists’ ears. The shade of Palm tree and pleasant sunray- what can be in more harmony? There are a series of leaf-made tanning couches to let you relax too!
  • La on Village – Nang Thong Beach in the middle of the genuine Khao Lak and Bang Niang beaches, Nang Thong Beach is unforgettable for its divine view of sunrise and sunset in the soul of Andaman Sea. There are a number of dignified resorts and lodges to stay in beside the beach. Shopaholic? Oh my God! Which girl is not! Then it’s surely going to be a permanent stay throughout your entire holiday. Throughout the entire beach and the adjacent area, there are a pretty lavish number of food stalls to choose from according to your taste and multiple numbers of shopping stalls and who are planning for any excuse, there are multiple ATMs too.
  • Bang Niang Beach and its adjacent areas are one of the most rapidly urbanising areas of Thailand’s other dominant tourist spots in terms of restaurants, resorts, infrastructures, shopping complex and maintenance. Apart from awe striking scenic beauty and cleanliness of the beach, it is a pretty good option to stay during your lavish holidays.
