Khuk Khak Beach is the beginning of the lonely northern zone of Khao Lak
Khuk Khak Beach is kilometres of white coral sand backed by casuarinas and coconut palms, with no buildings in sight save three beachfront resorts. This is the kind of romantic beach escape many people dream of. In Khao Lak you can certainly have kilometres of beach to yourself, even in the high season.
Some sections dry out at low tide leaving 100s of meters of exposed sand. There is a small inlet that cuts the beach south of Apsaras Resort, and this floods with high tides. Just below that is a temporary, high season village of bamboo & grass huts that serve as cheap local restaurants, beach bars and Thai massage pavilions.
Our Editor beach photos here show Khuk Khak beach under vivid blue skies, with lines of white water rolling from a green-blue ocean. These images were shot during a fine break in the monsoon season, in July. Catch a break in the monsoon weather and you can enjoy some of the finest conditions, especially for beach photography. With the countryside lush and green at this time of year, backdrops for all photos can be beautiful. At other times during the monsoon the ocean can be wild and dangerous.
The outstanding resort here is the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort, built in Thai-style and spread through canals and beach gardens with large swimming pools. Its beachfront is especially beautiful and relaxing.
The family-friendly Apsaras Resort & Spa is another good quality resort, this one beside a small river that gives it surely the best location on Khuk Khak. The photos in our gallery showing an exceptionally wide beach and vivid blue skies were shot around here.
