Best beaches in Thailand

Khao Lak

Khao Lak

We fell instantly in love with Khao Lak, a near-perfect balance between long stretches of soft sand, inviting turquoise waters, ample dive and snorkel opportunities, great restaurants and an energetic but friendly vibe. Make sure to watch the sun set from the beach at low tide for a quintessential vacation experience (and great photos). Aside from the gorgeous beach, Khao Lak is also a great base for exploring the surrounding areas, such as the Similan and Surin islands and Khao Sok and National Park (not to be missed).
