This beach is great for relaxing and away from the main beaches of bang niang and nangthong. They are some restaurants nearby and good local food.

Whenever I am in need of a relaxing beach that is easy to reach I drive to Pakweep Beach, reading a good book, writing those forgotten emails, enjoying the beauty of Khao Lak. Restaurants and massage huts are at either end of the beach. The...More

A nice generally litter free beach. We went on a rainy day but did have an hour before it started to enjoy the sea. Loads of bars and massage parlours avaiable at very good prices. The massage ladies next to Boom Boom restaurant were friendly,...More

Arrived just before sunset to a largely deserted beach. The different cloud formations were amazing and on our visit, despite some recent storm damage the beach was spotless. Sheltered at a local hotel and had cocktails during a rainstorm then found a lovely beachside restaurant...More

This strip of beach could be exceptional, you can now see the erosion from the natural elements and what is left behind by constant regurgatation of the sea. Our visit was in June which is probably the worst timing. This could be better if the...More

what is the easiest way to get from karon beach to Pak weep beach. i was thinking taxi to the airport then a bus from there??

Response fromtedkarma|
I assume that you know that Pak Weep Beach is about ten kilomters north of Khao Lak town? I doubt that there is a bus that goes there. In particular form the airport. Your best best would be to catch a bus from Phuket Town (off Phang Nga Road - on the east side of town heading towards Surin Road) to Takuapa. This is NOT where the song thaews gather - but about two kilometers (guessing) east of there. Once on the bus you would need to keep your eye out for either the Similana or...More

Hi all, we travelled to Khao Lak last year and absolutely loved it. We did spend a heap of time at White Sands Beach (Pak Weep Beach? I think they are the same place?) and wondered if anyone could recommend a resort/hotel to stay at close to this. Last time we were in Nang Thong and would like to be closer if possible. We are a family of 4, 2 kids aged 12 and 10 so need a bungalow or family room. We tend to stay away from the big resorts if possible. Any advice greatly appreciated, cheers...More

I think the place you were visiting was the Tsunami Memorial site at Ban Nam Khem which is next to the fishing port and pier and overlooks the island of Koh Kho Khao. It sounds like the beach you are referring to on the way back probably was the northern end of Pak Weeb Beach in between the creek next to the Beyond Resort and the Mai Khao Lak Resort. At the time you visited there would have been a row of beach restaurants and massage places along that stretch but since that date, first in...More
