Posted on: 26th February 2016

Discover a Hidden Treasure Around Khao Lak

Thai Muang Beach lies roughly 25 km from both Khao Lak and Phuket, just a short distance north of Natai Beach. Home to a national park, a sea turtle sanctuary, a golf course and a couple of small villages, it ranks among the most natural and serene beaches of southern Thailand. It is also one of the most attractive, with its white powdery sand stretching well out into the clear, warm sea. Like many other lesser-known tourist attractions, Thai Muang Beach is a hidden treasure and an ideal destination for those in search of solitude. Stretching for about 30 km, it is quite an expansive area spreading mostly arrow-straight in shape. So finding a good patch that you can occupy for yourself won’t be much of a challenge. Thai Muang Beach is easily accessible with a road running along it a few meters inland.
