Bangsak Beach - sure you want it this quiet & peaceful?
Bangsak Beach is the far north end of Khao Lak where there is little habitation and the beach is long, natural and empty. Needless to say, there is no entertainment, restaurants or bars nearby, and the nearest shopping area is the tourist village behind Bang Niang Beach some 12 kilometres to the south. You can definitely walk kilometres of beach in this area and have it all to yourself.
Bangsak is for those who are really certain that they want an isolated resort and complete chill-out vacation without outside entertainment. It is Khao Lak's loneliest beach. Of course, if you rent transport – a car or motorcycle – you can enjoy the isolation while driving to the low-key attractions of Khao Lak's small commercial villages, the first of which, Bang Niang, is a ten minute drive to the south. Transport also allows you to take off and explore the whole region by day.
This area is virtually dead in the monsoon season, through the two resorts shown here remain open with just a trickle of guests coming and going.
